Best Family Sedans Ranking Criteria

To qualify for the best family sedans segment, cars will have an MSRP ranging from around $22,000 – $28,000.  Family sedans make-up one of the most popular segments of the entire car purchasing market and often have excellent lease values due to their popularity and high residual values (resale). Month after month cars like Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima, and Mazda6 are almost a lock to be among the top for lease value. Due to its popularity among family sedan consumers, the Nissan Maxima steels into this segment despite the fact it’s MSRP is a bit high. Keep in mind, that the higher-end trim-levels in this segment, such as the Honda Accord EX-L often rival the price and monthly payments of cars in the luxury car segment.
