The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan swings to the masculine side of the pendulum and sharpens its driving appeal in the process. The 2011 Nissan Altima isn't quite as roomy as some mid-size rivals, but it's one of the sportiest-driving choices. The 2010 Toyota Camry Hybrid offers all the benefits of the well-known Camry sedan with Toyota's proven, reliable hybrid system to hit the market's sweet spot.
