The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Nissan Altima has a sportier look and feel than most other mid-size sedans, but it's just as practical. The 2009 Toyota Camry Hybrid melds the automaker's proven, hybrid system into America's bread-and-butter sedan. What's not to like?
