The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Hyundai Sonata blends in better than ever in the top tier of family sedans. The 2015 Toyota Camry ups its game with a thorough refresh that, while not daring, makes it more enjoyable for driver and passenger alike. The 2015 Volkswagen Passat provides a refreshing alternative to the usual mid-sizers, offering a huge interior and the segment's only diesel engine option.
