Cars.com named the VW Passat the best midsize sedan for 2016

2016-VW-Passat

The team at Cars.com pitted nine midsize sedans against each other for a series of tests to find the best car in the segment.

To be included in the test, the cars had to cost $28,000 or less, have an automatic transmission, and get an EPA-estimated rating of 28 mpg combined. Using these parameters, Cars.com selected the following nine contenders:

2016 Hyundai Sonata
2016 Subaru Legacy
2016 Volkswagen Passat
2016 Chevrolet Malibu
2016 Honda Accord
2016 Kia Optima
2016 Mazda6
2016 Nissan Altima
2016 Toyota Camry

The nine cars were put through a week of testing in Atlanta, Georgia. The testing included driving 220 miles around the city on the same course and pavement, allowing the judges to fairly evaluate ride, handling, comfort, and acceleration. Cars.com also brought in a real-life couple who were in the market to buy a car to test drive the cars.

The 2016 Volkswagen Passat won over both the Cars.com judges and the car-buying couple. The winning factors included the smooth 1.8-liter engine, quick acceleration, solid steering, and capable handling. The cushy seats were also a plus, making the Passat road trip ready. The car’s two-tone gray-and-black interior design stood out from the other contenders. The faux wood trim added an extra touch to set it apart from the traditional black plastic interiors found in the other sedans.

The Toyota RAV4: Built to last

2016 Rav4 lineup

Over 90% of Toyota RAV4s sold in the last ten years are still on the road today.

That’s right – the Toyota RAV4 is built to last. Based on a study by IHS Automotive, over 90% of RAV4s built in model year 2006-2015 were still on the road as of July 2015. But that’s not the only accolade that makes this crossover a consumer favorite.

The RAV4 has an overall rating of 8.2/10 from KBB.com Consumer Ratings, and a 4.2/5 overall rating from Edmunds.com Consumer Ratings. These ratings are thanks in part to its high safety ratings, including a 5-Star Overall Rating from the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It’s also been named a 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick+ when equipped with optional front crash prevention.

The improved styling of the RAV4 gives it a dynamic sporty exterior and an elegant interior. Passengers can enjoy the available heated seats and dual zone automatic climate control. The available leather steering wheel has a luxurious feel, and Entune Premium Audio with Integrated Navigation and App Suite and a frameless HomeLink®-capable mirror further enhance the premium high-tech experience.
