Most Satisfying 5-Year-Old Sedans
Reliable, fuel-efficient cars favored by our testers and CR members
You’re more likely to score a deal on a sedan in today’s fraught used-car market now that buyers have shifted to SUVs. You’ll save on the purchase, and most sedans return fuel economy superior to similarly sized SUVs, thus making their operating costs lower.
The efficiency stems from sedans being lighter and more aerodynamic vehicles than SUVs. And they don’t have off-road pretensions, along with all the heavy hardware to make it happen. Their engines can therefore be smaller to achieve the same performance.
