KBB's Midsize Car Comparison Results

May 12, 2016

If you're shopping for a mid-size sedan, 2016 is a great year because over half the models in this class have been completely redesigned or updated. There's a lot of competition among manufacturers, which leads to better deals.

If you need help figuring out which models you should consider, check out KBB's Midsize Car Comparison article which was released this week. They go over each updated model and pick what they consider to be the best ones. The full ranking is below, but keep in mind that the top choices were very close to tying for first place.

As always, if you're shopping for a new car, I recommend you use TrueCar and Edmunds Price Promise to quickly see what kind of deals are being offered in your area.

My Recommendation for Car Shoppers

TrueCar and Edmunds are the quickest 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.
