The Toyota Camry and Honda Accord just about everything well, though you’ll pay more for either than you will an equivalent Malibu.

We like the Kia K5’s upscale styling and its high-tech cabin; don’t mid-size sedan shop without testing it out.

Subaru’s Legacy comes standard with all-wheel drive, and its optional turbo makes it something of a performance choice with a luxurious ride quality.

Lastly, the Hyundai Sonata is the segment’s undisputed style champ—and it has real substance to back up its looks.
