2015 Sedan Buyers Guide

Share this Article

Sedans are the go-to choice for drivers and models like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord sell in the hundreds of thousands each year, making them a sizable slice of the overall pie. Competitors like the Hyundai Sonata and Ford Fusion sell in great volume as well. And these are solid products; it’s almost impossible to buy a bad sedan these days.

What’s New for 2015?

Adding a dash of excitement, Toyota designers and engineers updated their best-selling Camry for 2015. The car gains sleek new styling, a new XSE trim level and newly available features like automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control. The Camry is always popular and these relatively minor changes should keep it on top of the sales chart.

2015 Toyota Camry Review

Hyundai totally redesigned its Sonata for 2015. This South Korean sedan is a strong challenger to Toyota/Honda hegemony. To broaden its appeal, stylists made this model look more conservative; the design is much more timorous than its predecessor. Still you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover because the Sonata has a spacious, nicely thought-out interior, a lineup of efficient engines and it drives pretty well to boot.

2015 Hyundai Sonata Review

But not everyone wants something so mainstream. Customers that demand performance will have to swing their local Dodge dealer where they can pick up a Charger that’s loaded with 707-hp courtesy of a supercharged V8. This full-size four-door can haul passengers and parcels with ease and maul performance car on the racetrack. Best of all it can be yours for right around 64,000 bucks.2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat

What’s Next?

Not a whole lot seems to be going on in the sedan segment but there are at least a few models that are scheduled to be totally redesigned. A totally redesigned Ford Taurus is slated to take a bow next year. This Blue Oval bull will ditch its aging D-architecture in favor of an enlarged version of the platform that underpins the company’s Fusion midsize sedan. A variety of EcoBoost engines are expected to be on the menu along with a new nine-speed automatic transmission.

Chrysler is expected to receive its first small car in many years. The brand will finally get a reengineered version of the Dodge Dart. The new 100 should feature the same engine lineup as its sibling though you can expect its exterior and interior styling to be quite different.
