So loaded is the market with good choices that mid-size sedan shoppers should allot plenty of time for test-drives.
Our current favorite is the Honda Accord, with its roomy interior and sublime road manners.
The Hyundai Sonata shares its engines and its underpinnings with the Optima, but it comes across dour in comparison.
The Toyota Camry has a lot more personality now than ever before, although its looks aren’t for everyone.
Ford discounts its Fusion heavily, making the attractive four-door a good choice for buyers on a budget; catch it before Ford discontinues the model, soon.
The latest Nissan Altima seems more snug inside, but offers all-wheel drive as an option as well as a trick new turbo-4 engine; you just can’t have them together.
