The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
5.7
6.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
More tech this year makes the 2021 Honda Accord a compelling buy, but the options can rack up. The 2021 Volkswagen Passat base model offers good value at a time when new car prices are spiking. The 2021 Volkswagen Tiguan compact crossover is spacious and comfortable, and also the league-leader in modesty,
