You've got your work cut out for you if you're in the market for a mid-size sedan.
The choices are plentiful and they're all pretty darn good.
The Chevy Malibu's most obvious rival is the Ford Fusion.
It's nicely styled, but starting to feel a little dated.
The Honda Accord is this segment's sales leader, at least in terms of retail deliveries, and it's easy to see why: composure, quality, and value in spades.
Each has its own virtues and none will be a bad addition to your driveway.
