Which Midsize Sedan Is Best for You?

There is an open secret in the car world: While SUV sales remain red hot, the underappreciated midsize sedan is safer, roomier, and more fun to drive than ever before. Two excellent SUV alternatives include the 2019 Honda Accord and the newly redesigned 2019 Nissan Altima.

These two family cars deliver a great mix of value and practicality, without boring the driver with dull handling and lethargic acceleration. Turbocharged four-cylinder engines are available in either sedan and, for the first time in the model’s history, the Nissan Altima can also be optioned with all-wheel drive. Who says you need a SUV to navigate snow-covered roads this winter?

Using data from our rankings, we’ve put these two sedans side-by-side to see which one comes out ahead. Every detail has been examined, from price and reliability to seat comfort and acceleration. In the end, one car took the lead.

But the real winner here might be the savvy car shopper, the one who knows to include more than SUVs on their shopping list.
