Roomy, comfortable, efficient, tech-savvy, and sometimes even fun to drive, today's midsize sedans deliver more bang for the buck than perhaps any other category of vehicles. It's no wonder they remain among the top-selling cars in the country.


2018 Chevrolet Malibu
Starting Price: $22,555
Totally rethought for 2016, the Malibu is roomier, more stylish and more tech savvy than ever before.


2018 Ford Fusion

The boldly styled Fusion continues to turn heads and win buyers with its good looks.


2018 Honda Accord
Starting Price: $24,465
All-new for 2018, this is the most advanced, most refined Accord to date.


2018 Hyundai Sonata
Starting Price: $22,935
With a low starting price and excellent warranty coverage, the roomy and feature-filled Sonata is a better and better value.



2018 Kia Optima
Starting Price: $23,495
The Optima mixes a sporty and stylish persona with established value.


2018 Mazda Mazda6
Starting Price:$23,890
Arguably the most stylish, most fun-to-drive midsize sedan, a more powerful turbocharged engine and updated styling make the Mazda6 even more appealing for 2018. 


2018 Nissan Altima
Starting Price: $24,145
Nissan's popular midsize sedan trails only Camry and Accord in annual sales.


2018 Subaru Legacy

The Legacy's claim to fame remains its standard all-wheel drive, but its stellar reputation for reliability is equally compelling.


2018 Toyota Camry

All-new for 2018, the venerable Camry is as easy to drive and reliable as ever, but with a new sense of style and sportiness.


2018 Volkswagen Passat

The only European entry in the segment, the roomy, comfortable Passat is also a pleasure to drive. 




Best Buy
On the strength of its stellar reputation for quality and value, the 2018 Honda Accord was named the Kelley Blue Book Midsize Car Best Buy of 2018, as well as the Overall Best Buy of 2018. 

Broad Appeal
You'll find six of these midsize sedans on our most recent list of 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000 and six on our collection of 10 Most Comfortable Cars Under $30,000.

What's New

Resale Value Recognition
The Subaru Legacy is a perennial resale value standout, and it took home our most recent Best Resale Value Award in the Mid-Size Car category. Following in the second and third spots were the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.

2018 Sedan Buyer's Guide

Sedans are still popular cars despite being overshadowed by crossovers. They’re practical, family friendly, comfortable and safe. They’re the jack of all trades of the industry, and it is easy to see why. Recently, sedans have put more of an emphasis on safety and efficiency, and some have even started to spice things up with sporty driving dynamics.

What's New in Sedans for 2018?


The 2018 Toyota Camry has been totally overhauled with a crazy new look, more technology, and standard Safety Sense driver assistance features. Although it’s still the reliable and affordable family sedan people know and love, it has much better driving dynamics than before.

An all-new Toyota Avalon will also be available soon. It rides on the same new platform as the Camry and will be available with a V6 and Hybrid powertrain. The Avalon will be the first Toyota to offer Apple CarPlay and an adaptive suspension. This is the most Lexus-like Toyota in the lineup and will be luxurious and comfortable as always, but has a new focus on performance.

The 2018 Honda Accord is all new and is probably one of the best family sedans you can buy. This popular family sedan really is the whole package: It has all the tech and features you want, two great engine options, fantastic driving dynamics, a comfortable and user-friendly interior, and excellent practicality.


The Hyundai Sonata has been refreshed for 2018 with a revised look inside and out, more equipment and a few powertrain tweaks.

The 2018 Kia Stinger is an all-new grand touring sedan offering from the Korean brand, and it’s so impressive that it was named as AutoGuide.com‘s 2018 Car of the Year. This sportback sedan is available with two engines (a base turbo four and a more exciting twin-turbo V6) and can be had with rear or all-wheel drive. Think of it as a budget Audi A5 Sportback — it’s that good.


In a similar vein, the 2018 Genesis G70 is an interesting new luxury sport sedan for Hyundai’s premium brand. As Genesis’s answer to the BMW 3 Series, it has a luxurious interior and excellent driving dynamics.

Another sportback sedan that’s new on the market is the 2018 Buick Regal Sportback, which is practical and offers satisfying performance. The Acura RLX has also arrived as a respectable luxury sedan pick.

The 2018 Subaru Impreza is also here with a new look, better driving dynamics, and a much-improved interior. The all-new 2018 Volkswagen Jetta will also arrive soon with new looks and more tech, while the Kia Forte has just debuted with a stylish new design and a CVT for the first time.

The 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia is an interesting new choice in the luxury sedan segment with pure driving dynamics and a sexy design.
