The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Spacious, handsome, and unremittingly conservative, the 2011 Hyundai Azera is a great alternative for folks who think the company's Sonata is a bit risque. The 2011 Ford Taurus isn’t quite a game-changing sedan, but it's a handsome, solid, high-quality choice.
