Here’s the Ranking From the U.S. News Best Midsize Car for the Money Award

While manufacturers scramble for a piece of the growing SUV market, many well-known midsize cars continue to offer a lot of features for the money. Most of the twelve models on this list are very familiar to shoppers since they’ve been around for years. But many of these models have seen recent upgrades that brought advanced safety and infotainment technologies to these well-known names.

While the MSRP of these vehicles is an important factor in this award, it’s far from the only factor. We also took into account things like the cost of keeping the tank filled with gas, how much you’ll typically pay to insure the car, and even the likely cost of maintenance and repairs. Sometimes it’s true that you get what you pay for – a less expensive car might be lacking in features or even siphon more from your bank account over the long term. On the other end of the spectrum, a more expensive car doesn’t always mean buyers are getting the best value or the highest quality vehicle.

Every year, the U.S. News Best Car for the Money awards put the spotlight on models that offer the best quality and value. To measure quality, we use the U.S. News overall scores from our rankings, which factor in expert reviews from the automotive press, as well as safety and reliability data. To measure value, we use TrueCar average transaction prices and Vincentric five-year total cost of ownership data.

Keep in mind that the scores on our site are updated constantly as new expert reviews and data become available. Therefore, the overall scores mentioned in this slideshow may not match the scores in our reviews.
