The past several years have proven to be a fresh and exciting chapter in automotive history—but the upcoming model year has definitively turned yet another page. Sedans are faster, safer, better handling and more comfortable than ever.
A litany of options is available to consumers in an array of classes and categories. Choices range from economic sport sedans offered by virtually every make, to lavish coaches with performance characteristics thought impossible only a decade ago.
Buyers can find a number of sedans starting in the mid-twenties from the consistently economical pool of Toyotas, Hondas, Nissans and Chevrolets; to mid-level luxury sedans from Acura, Lexus and Infiniti; to the pie-in-the-sky luxury of the six-figure priced set offered by Audi, BMW and Mercedes. There really is a sedan tailored to every discerning buyer’s tastes and needs.
It could be the affordability of the new Kia Amanti, a mid-size, V-6, entry-level sedan whose design apes its German peers, at a price that’s around a third of what the big boys cost. Or perhaps it’s the race-car soul in the opulent full-size body of the 496hp, $120,000 Mercedes-Benz S55. There are literally dozens of options falling between these examples in the sedan category.
This year’s offerings are sure to cater to the needs of anyone in the market for a
sedan: large or small, mild or wild, the perfect car is out there waiting to be driven.
