5 Sedans You Shouldn’t Skip

While it may seem that everyone would rather be driving a crossover or SUV, there is still something to be said for the traditional sedan body style.

The long, sophisticated lines of an executive sedan still hold their charms, but even more affordable options like the Nissan Altima manage to impress with their good looks.

With lower overall weight and access to hybrid or electric powertrain, they boast some of the best fuel economy figures, and they are often some of the most enjoyable drivers.

However, if you’re looking for a sports car, the chances are that a coupe will be more your speed.
Whether you are looking for something cheap and affordable or ultra-modern and sophisticated, there is a sedan out there that will call to you.

Here are just five that deserve a closer look:

Tesla Model S

The name to beat in electric propulsion technology, Tesla has perfected its midsize sedan over the years.

It still has the near-futuristic exterior that Elon Musk seems obsessed with, and the interior is minimalist without lacking any desirable features.

But, what makes the Model S so incredible is its amazing all-electric range and fuel economy.

In Long Range trim, it is currently unbeatable. Furthermore, the recently released S Plaid is arguably the quickest car on the planet, with Tesla claiming it can sprint from 0-60 mph in less than two seconds.

But, of course, it’s still a bit on the pricey side, and not everyone is on board with the whole EV revolution just yet.

Petrolheads, in particular, find it hard to get pleasure from the high-performance Plaid since it lacks that roaring soundtrack they can’t seem to live without.

Toyota Mirai

If you happen to live in California and want an alternative to one of the many EVs currently entering the market, then look no further than the Mirai.

Designed to run on hydrogen rather than electricity from a socket, the Toyota is even more eco-friendly.

Unfortunately, it isn’t viable anywhere else in the US due to the lack of appropriate refuelling infrastructure.

But the Mirai has more to offer than simple frugality, its high MSRP notwithstanding.

It is also a very stylish city cruiser and comes packed with features, including power-adjustable seats, a huge infotainment screen, and the full Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 safety suite.

Genesis G80

A relative newcomer to the automotive scene, Genesis has been landing hit after hit against the luxury giants like Mercedes-Benz and BMW.

Its largest offering, the G80 executive sedan, is the perfect example of premium style and comfort without the crippling price tag.

Courtesy of its size, the Genesis flagship has loads of passenger space, even in the back seat, and cargo capacity is competitive compared to other segment leaders.

But, of course, what matters is the sheer amount of luxury features, such as Nappa leather upholstery, multi-zone climate control, heated and ventilated seats, and the supremely comfortable ride quality that makes the G80 such a knockout blow.

Kia Forte

If you don’t have the cash to blow on one of these luxurious sedans, fear not; you can still find great options at the other end of the price spectrum.

The Kia Forte is a sub-$20k vehicle that packs a lot of value into a compact package.

The starter engine is a little weak, with only 147 horsepower and 132 lb-ft, but you don’t need more from a frugal commuter. Its mileage figures are great for a non-hybrid, and you get a fair number of standard features and great warranty coverage at no extra charge.

If you want to spoil yourself, the GT with the turbocharged powertrain is a lot more fun, and it allows you to swap out the automatic transmission for a manual.

It’s still a far cry from even the cheapest sports coupe out there, though.

Porsche Taycan

If fun is your primary goal, then the Porsche Taycan is hard to ignore.

The Turbo variant is even more appealing, but not everyone can handle a six-figure sticker, so looking at the standard model makes more sense.

This is one sporty customer with access to a maximum of 482 hp (562 hp with launch control) and 479 lb-ft. It dispatches the 0-60 mph sprint in just under four seconds and looks great doing so.

Though technically a sedan with four seats, the Taycan is much like its other Porsche siblings in that it gives little regard to comfort in the rear seats.

But, thanks to the lack of a combustion engine, there is a fair amount of cargo space when you combine the frunk and trunk.
