Battle of the Midsize Sedan

Midsize sedans are consistently popular year by year. They are versatile vehicles in style, comfort, and space. With so many options available, it can be hard to narrow it down. Here are some of the top midsize sedans from the last five years. 

Honda Accord 

The Honda Accord has a longstanding history of reliability. The new 2022 Honda Accord is remarkably fuel-efficient. The fuel economy numbers vary depending on the trim level of choice, but the base trim LX and EX-L both deliver an EPA-estimated 30 city and 38 highway mpg with a combined 30 mpg rating.

Kia K5

Comfort and consistency are the basis of the Kia K5. With the standard turbocharged 1.6L 4-cylinder engine, the Kia K5 gas mileage reaches an impressive 29 mpg city/38 mpg highway. The standard 8-inch touch screen has crisp graphics, but there is a slight delay when inputting touch commands. There are also well-positioned buttons and knobs to help with commonly used functions. The smooth ride, combined with high safety ratings, makes the K5 a top choice.
