These Sedans Are the Perfect Weekend Warriors

There’s no doubt about it: Sedans simply aren't as popular as they used to be. In 2020, automakers are following consumer demand, churning out crossovers and light-duty SUVs in volume. At present, it seems like the regular four-door car is getting the cold shoulder.

Still, if you prefer the traditional sedan silhouette, you have plenty of options. In fact, some four-doors are among the fastest cars on the road today: They’ll get you to and from the office, easily accommodate kids in the back row, and hold their own next time you show up at a track day – or just want to rocket up an entrance ramp.

We took a look at some of the highest-horsepower four-door cars on the market today and ranked them according to their performance in zero-to-60-mph acceleration tests. While in some cases we used the manufacturer’s advertised performance figures, we sometimes deferred to magazines that conduct their own performance tests, such as Automobile Magazine, Car and Driver, and Motor Trend. In the case of a tie, the car with the higher horsepower figure wins.
