TCC’s Bottom Line
Spacious and fuel efficient, the 2016 Hyundai Sonata is a worthy rival for America's best-selling family sedan. The 2016 Toyota Camry offers a controlled ride and plenty of interior comfort, making it pleasant for the driver and passengers alike. The 2016 Volkswagen Passat gets a little more excitement in its features and details, while staying safe where it counts.
