The Sonata has fewer rivals but more intense competition among family four-doors.
Some comes from the new Kia K5, the handsome and snappy sedan that shares all but its look with the Sonata.
The Volkswagen Passat enters its final year with very conservative, traditional styling and a straightforward interior that verges on stark—and probably the most spacious back seat in this class.
The Camry has become sportier in this generation, and it’s the only one of the affordable mid-size sedans to still offer a V-6.
The Honda Accord probably offers the best combination of performance, driving enjoyment, and interior comfort—plus some great safety credentials.
The Nissan Altima sits somewhere in the middle, with a sharp exterior but somewhat dull cabin design; it’s a strong value at the base end of its lineup.
The Camry, K5, and Altima now distinguish themselves further with available all-wheel drive.
