The Car Connection reviews the most popular sedans, and they're as good as they've ever been, even if they're selling in fewer numbers. The redesigned Mitsubishi Outlander seven-seat crossover improves in most regards, except for the emergency third row seats. Here's what else we assessed this week.
One of the top-rated family sedans for as long as we can remember, the 2022 Accord earns a TCC Rating of 7.3 out of 10.
The 2022 Toyota Camry mid-size sedan rates 7.2 out of 10 on the TCC scale thanks to its all-around competence and, dare we say, its personality.
The redesigned crossover with a cramped third row is big improvement over the old one, building on the Rogue platform and adding its own twist. Solid value and safety scores lead the Outlander to a TCC Rating of 6.5 out of 10.
Minus its V-8s, the 2022 E-Class sedan, coupe, cabriolet, and wagon still top the TCC Rating scale with a 7.8 out of 10.
With a TCC Rating of 6.7 out of 10, the 2022 RAV4 serves up Prime hybrid power, at the expense of value.
The Ioniq Hybrid and Plug-In Hybrid offer a special combination of comfort, utility, and value, with efficiency that tops other models you'd fuel with gasoline. We give it a 6.8 out of 10.
Long a leader in the premium sedan class, the Lexus ES has efficient and potent powertrain options, a peerless ride quality, and strong safety rating for a TCC Rating to 7.3 out of 10.
The Explorer earns a 6.8 TCC Rating, with plus points for its looks and refinement, but demerits for seating and, in most of its versions, value.
Big on space, the Ford Expedition full-size SUV comes in standard and extended-cabin Max versions, and earns a TCC Rating of 7.0 out of 10.
In this model's eighth year, the 2022 GMC Canyon mid-size pickup lacks the safety and convenience features of most rivals, dooming it to a TCC Rating of 4.8 out of 10.
