Buying a used midsize sedan is a good way to save money on a family vehicle. To really get a good deal, though, you need to choose a used model that will last several more years and comes with good features.

These four midsize sedans are some of the best options for when you want a used car.

Honda Accord

The Honda Accord is a durable midsize sedan that offers nearly six cubic feet of cargo capacity as well as plenty of features. If you choose a 2014 model, then you are guaranteed to get:

  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • A rearview camera

All of those features come with the base model. You can get even more when you choose a higher trim level.

Perhaps best of all, though, is that the Accord is one of few vehicles that can survive 200,000 miles of driving. During those miles, you can expect the 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine to give you 189 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque. You can also choose a V6 engine that churns out 278 horsepower and 252 pound-feet of torque.


The Mazda6 also makes a reliable used car. It’s probably a good option if you like a midsize sedan that offers plenty of agility and pep. The 2014 model comes with a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that will give you 184 horsepower and 185 pound-feet of torque. Despite having less power than the Accord, the Mazda6 can sprint to 60 mph in about 7.5 seconds. That makes it a quick, fun car to drive.

The Mazda6 also has a sporty exterior style that makes it more attractive than most midsize sedans. If you know that you need enough room to haul your kids to school, but you really want to look cool when you pull into the parking lot at work, then this is probably a good option for you.

Ford Fusion

The Ford Fusion excels at giving drivers quick acceleration and sharp handling. The 2014 base model comes with a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that will give you 175 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque.

For considerably more power, opt for the turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine. It will give you an impressive 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. That not only makes the Fusion fun to drive, but will help you avoid dangerous situations on the road.

Kia Optima

When it comes to price, it’s hard to beat the Kia Optima. Kia has been making some of the most affordable cars of the last decade. Even though the price is low, the Optima comes loaded with plenty of standard features, including:

  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Satellite radio
  • Keyless entry

The base model also has a 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine that generates 192 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. All of this is packed into an attractive sedan with extremely comfortable seats.

If you’re willing to spend a little more money, you can choose to get an Optima Hybrid. The upfront cost is higher, but you will save money every day that you don’t have to fill up the tank with expensive gasoline.

Whether you’re looking for style, speed, or features, it’s always important to think about value when you buy a used car. These options should make sure you get your money’s worth.
