TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Hyundai Sonata is a strong family-sedan value, with inconspicuous looks hiding top-notch safety and fuel economy. The 2017 Toyota Camry is a comfortable commuter without much pretension; a very good appliance for car buyers who prefer substance over style. The 2017 Volkswagen Passat is a conservative pick in the mid-size pack with generous interior space.
