10 Best Sedans You Can Buy Today

These midsized and large sedans are recommended by CR and score at the top of their respective class

Even as automakers introduce more SUVs, midsized and large sedans are still a smart choice for many consumers. They effectively blend fuel economy, passenger room, cargo space, and flexibility into a package that’s often more enjoyable to drive than the average SUV. 

There are many competent options to choose from in the midsized and large sedan segment. But when you’re looking for the best sedan, merely meeting expectations isn’t enough.

That’s why Consumer Reports tests all the sedans on the market and gives them an Overall Score. This is a combination of their road-test score, reliability rating, owner satisfaction rating, and performance in crash tests. We award additional points when forward collision warning (FCW), automatic emergency braking (AEB), and blind spot warning (BSW) are standard equipment.
