TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Hyundai Sonata receives a much-needed injection of style. The 2018 Mazda 6 is a stylish, good handling sedan that finally has the underhood muscle to match. The 2018 Subaru Legacy may be the best mid-size sedan that buyers largely miss. It skips performance for a good safety record and relative value—not bad things.
