Affordable Alternatives to SUVs

With the seismic market shift away from midsize sedans and into crossover sport-utility vehicles, four-door family cars no longer represent the largest automotive segment. However, to paraphrase Mark Twain, reports of the midsize car’s death have been greatly exaggerated. After all, not everyone wants to drive what amounts to a tall box on wheels. Seven of the top 20-selling vehicles for the 2019 calendar year were sedans, with four of them being midsize models.

Midsize sedans are more affordable and are often more expressively styled than SUVs. They’re also built with lower centers of gravity, enabling livelier driving dynamics than taller and heavier utes. With slipperier aerodynamics and less weight to haul around, they also afford better fuel economy. Most are sufficiently roomy to transport five passengers in reasonable comfort, and come with generous trunk space that can expand to hold larger items via split-folding rear seatbacks.

In this slideshow, we showcase our 11 top-rated midsize sedans for 2020. As with other vehicle segments, we rank midsize cars based on a full range of factors. These include how well a given model performs, its predicted reliability, safety ratings and systems, interior comfort, technology, and its family-minded features. The top-ranked models afford a winning combination of these dynamics.

Be aware that since we constantly update vehicle scores and rankings based on newly available information and data, some of the scores given here may not match the current numbers elsewhere on our website.
