Though the mid-size sedan ranks have shrunk recently, good choices remain.
This year’s newcomer is the redesigned Subaru Legacy, which comes with all-wheel drive and still earns good fuel economy scores.
It’s a must-see.
The Nissan Altima is lighter on refinement but also less expensive, and its new-for-2019 looks remain fresh.
Upgrades last year gave the Mazda 6 a boost with turbo power and a few upgrades, and it remains a solid, sporty choice.
The Toyota Camry and Honda Accord have been bellwethers for decades.
The latest Accord is a spirited performer with class-up styling, while the Camry impresses for its comfortable ride and bold styling.
