The 2018 BMW 5 Series lives up to the expectations set by its forebears. There's an engine for nearly every taste, and the car's handling capabilities are fundamentally sound. Factor in the 5 Series' latest tech and safety features, and you've got a prime pick for a midsize luxury sedan.

A host of innovative features and leading-edge technology
Interior quarters are quiet and comfortable
Generous trunk capacity

CONS
Some interior materials are a bit below segment standards
Evolutionary styling doesn't stand out in a crowded class

Pros

State-of-the-art tech
Great powertrains

The 2020 Toyota Camry sits near the top of our midsize car rankings. It offers an enjoyable ride, plenty of active safety features, and some of the best fuel economy estimates in the segment. A smallish trunk and noticeable cabin noise are among its few faults.

Pros
Great fuel economy
Engaging ride
Generous list of standard features
Excellent safety score

Cons
Below-average trunk space
Noisy cabin

By: 
usnews.com

The Camry has returned to glory with its exciting lineup, improved build quality, and priority on safety.

Pros
Frugal four-cylinder engine,
truly sporty TRD model,
standard driver assists.

Cons
Tepid four-cylinder acceleration,
polarizing exterior design,
has to compete against the Honda Accord.
