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
Starting Price: $23,090
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
Starting Price: $23,055
The Legacy's claim to fame remains its standard all-wheel drive, but its stellar reputation for reliability is equally compelling.
2018 Toyota Camry
Starting Price: $24,530
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
Starting Price: $23,845
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
Following a relatively quiet 2017 model year for the segment, 2018 brings with it complete redesigns of both the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. And while not a full redesign, the Hyundai Sonata has been significantly updated for 2018, as has the Mazda6.
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.

These cars, SUVs, and trucks performed well when new and have above-average reliability records

Buying a pre-owned car is more than just a great way to save money—it could get you into a model that has safety and luxury features you couldn’t afford in a new car.
We dug through years of test data and hundreds of thousands of survey responses to find the best used cars for under $20,000.

Consider the models listed below (alphabetically by segment) to be the vehicles that we'd recommend to our friends and family members who want to buy a used car on a $20,000 budget. Each performed well in our tests when it was new and has consistently demonstrated multiple years of much-better-than-average reliability for the 2008-2017 model years. Years are excluded when reliability did not meet this high standard or there was insufficient data.
Of course, even for used cars we recommend, there can be outliers—maybe a former owner didn’t care much for car maintenance, or there was a problem at the factory the week the car rolled off the line. Before you buy, make sure to pay for a thorough inspection by a certified mechanic so there are no surprises down the road.
