TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Hyundai Sonata aims squarely for value-minded shoppers who want a long warranty, and hits a bullseye. The 2019 Kia Optima doles out great safety, good looks, and lots of features to rise near the top of the family-car ratings. The 2019 Toyota Camry discards its plain vanilla personality in favor of vanilla bean.
