Sedans are one the most versatile vehicle types. They are good for solo travelers, small families, drivers with few passengers and those looking to get the best gas mileage. It’s no surprise that the sedan is one of the most popular body styles on the market.
Since they are so popular, nearly every car manufacturer has their own sedan offering, some even offer multiple sedans at different price points with different features. With so many options out there, choosing the right sedan for you can seem overwhelming. We can help. Check out some of our top picks for used sedans.
The Ford Fusion is the midsize sedan that is the best of both worlds, good for families and fun to drive.

One of the sportier cars at its price point, it has an available V6 engine for even more power. The Fusion has powerful brakes and sharp steering, making the it very agile around tight turns.
If you are looking for a compact car that has a sports car feel, without a sports car price tag, you might like the Chevy Cruze. The Cruze has sharp steering and strong breaks, so it handles like a sporty vehicle. It also has a more upscale interior than other cars in its class, making it feel like a much more expensive car.
Not only is the Cruze sporty it’s also very safe, consistently ranked to be one of the safest compact cars on the market.
The Kia Forte is the compact car that has it all: cargo space, fuel efficiency, stylish interior and numerous features.

The Forte also stands out from other compact, lower price point sedans because it has a well-outfitted interior and comes with a number standard features, including: Bluetooth connectivity, USB ports and satellite radio.

You don’t have to sacrifice power for fuel efficiency with the Altima. It gets great gas mileage compared to other sedans in its class and for a car that is not a hybrid.
