Roomy, comfortable, efficient, tech-savvy, and sometimes even fun to drive, today's midsize sedans deliver more bang for the buck than perhaps any other category of vehicles. It's no wonder they remain among the top-selling cars in the country.

Nissan's popular midsize sedan trails only Camry and Accord in annual sales.

2018 Volkswagen Passat

On the strength of its stellar reputation for quality and value, the 2018 Honda Accord was named the Kelley Blue Book Midsize Car Best Buy of 2018, as well as the Overall Best Buy of 2018.
You'll find six of these midsize sedans on our most recent list of 10 Best Sedans Under $25,000 and six on our collection of 10 Most Comfortable Cars Under $30,000.
Following a relatively quiet 2017 model year for the segment, 2018 brings with it complete redesigns of both the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. And while not a full redesign, the Hyundai Sonata has been significantly updated for 2018, as has the Mazda6.
Resale Value Recognition
The Subaru Legacy is a perennial resale value standout, and it took home our most recent Best Resale Value Award in the Mid-Size Car category. Following in the second and third spots were the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry.
