The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
6.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Toyota Camry remains among the most competitive mid-size sedans, with a sleeker design, higher fuel economy, and carefully calibrated features and options for every buyer. The 2018 Volkswagen Passat does little wrong, but its stoicism means it isn’t much fun.
