Sedans are arguably the most competitive car segment, and the uniqueness of the Edmunds.com list for 2013 is that Toyota, which manufacturers the Camry and Corolla, both perennially among the top-10 selling cars in the United States, is not on the recommended list in any sedan price category.
None of the members of the Toyota Prius family of hybrid cars are on recommended sedan list, either, although Toyota products are listed in other recommended categories.
Here’s the top-three in eight price categories for Edmunds.com, the online automotive information resource guide headquartered in Santa Monica, California.
Chevrolet Sonic, Ford Fiesta, Hyundai Accent
Mazda 3, Hyundai Elantra, Ford Focus
Ford Fusion, Honda Accord, Nissan Ultima
Chrysler 300, Buick Lacrosse, Ford Fusion Hybrid
BMW3 Series, Hyundai Genesis, Cadillac ATS
Audi A6, Mercedes E-Class, Lexus GS 350
Audi A7, Lexus LS 460, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG,
Mercedes S-Class, Audi A8, Porsche Panamera.
