The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Mazda Mazda6 is a great pick for practically-minded family-car shoppers who also value driving enjoyment. The 2011 Subaru Legacy is one of the best-handling mid-size sedans, and the only mainstream one to offer standard all-wheel drive.
