Most midsized sedans deliver an excellent combination of passenger space, cargo room, and fuel economy at attractive prices. An increasing number also come with all-wheel drive for rough weather, making them an even more compelling alternative to an SUV.

But a number of midsized sedans aren’t very reliable, according to our exclusive survey data, with information more than 320,000 vehicles. To keep you from wasting your time and money on repairs down the road, Consumer Reports compiled this list of the most reliable new midsized sedans to help you make a smart, informed purchase decision.

These sedans are all recommended by CR. That means they scored well in our road tests, which comprise more than 50 objective and subjective evaluations. On top of that, they have good reliability and come standard with key active safety equipment, including forward collision warning (FCW) and automatic emergency braking (AEB), and we note if blind spot warning (BSW) is standard or optional. They also performed well in government and insurance-industry crash tests if they were tested.
