The Car Connection Best Car To Buy 2013Enlarge Photo
All three of those models are on The Car Connection's 2013 Best Car To Buy short list, which means that they achieved an Overall Score of at least 8.0 in our full review process, which includes individual ratings for Styling, Performance, Comfort, Safety, and Features, all figured in.
Several luxury-brand sedans made the cut, too (with a price that starts under $50,000), but in this post we're focusing on the heart of the market and the mainstream brands. And within those constraints, the new 2013 Dodge Dart compact sedan also made the cut, as did the 2013 Toyota Avalon full-size sedan.
Some might say that crossover vehicles are the new family cars, and we're not going to argue with that. Yet the four-door sedan continues to rule in the U.S.; mid-size sedans alone still significantly outsell all sizes of crossovers combined—so few are forgetting about the Accord, Camry, and Altima. With their even better fuel economy ratings, there are plenty of good reasons to choose any of these models as your next vehicle.
