Here are the Best Midsize Sedans

December 25, 2014

There is no denying the popularity of the midsize sedan, which includes hugely popular vehicles such as the Toyota Camry, Honda Accord, and Nissan Altima.

However, with so many options to choose from, it can be overwhelming to narrow down the field. Luckily, a couple of publications have done all the research to help you decide. recently released the top 10 winners of their Midsize Sedan Challenge, while The Wirecutter released the results of their Best Midsize Sedan research project. chose the 2015 Hyundai Sonata as the overall winner while the Wirecutter chose the 2015 Subaru Legacy 2.5i Premium. As is the case with most car reviews these days, the factors that decide which is the "best" can be very subjective. The differences in quality between competing vehicles has never been smaller. Therefore, what I recommend you do is read through both reviews and narrow down 3 or 4 models to test drive (optimally, you would test drive all the vehicles yourself, but who has the time?). Only you can decide which is really the best vehicle for you.

If you're considering any of these midsize sedans, I highly recommend you use TrueCar No Haggle, RydeShopper and CarsDirect to see the best prices being offered in your local area. Midsize Sedan Challenge Top 10 Winners

TrueCar, RydeShopper, and CarsDirect are the best way to see the lowest car prices in your area. These sites show you no-haggle prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually really good. This should be the first step you take when negotiating your car price. Follow this up with my checklist to make sure you squeeze out every last bit of savings.
