The 2018 Subaru Legacy may be the best mid-size sedan that buyers largely miss. It skips performance for a good safety record and relative value—not bad things.

Pros
Sparkling safety scorecard
Better interior materials
All-wheel-drive confidence
Comfortable interior
Relatively good value

Cons
Average performance
Thirsty optional engine
Plain exterior
Extra-cost advanced safety

Revised for 2018, the Subaru Legacy has freshened front and rear styling, higher-quality interior materials, a larger 6.5-inch standard display with smartphone integration, and a more powerful air-conditioning system. Subaru says it's also retuned the Legacy for smoother acceleration, a more comfortable ride quality, sportier steering feel, and reduced wind and road noise at highway speeds.

PROS
Standard all-wheel drive for extra wet-weather traction
Excellent outward visibility
Easy-to-use infotainment systems

CONS
Engines down on power compared to competitors

The 2018 Mazda 6 is a stylish, good handling sedan that finally has the underhood muscle to match.

Pros
Pretty to look at
Turbo power to match
Decent value
Lots of standard safety gear
Good balance between ride and handling

Cons
Turbo-4 too little, too late?
Awful infotainment system
New Signature trim doesn’t meet expectations
Could be more fuel-efficient

The Mazda 6 receives a variety of updates for 2018. The most significant is the revised interior, which is quieter and features a new dashboard design and higher-quality cabin materials. An available turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder joins the lineup, while the base 2.5-liter engine now has cylinder deactivation technology to improve fuel economy.

PROS
Suave interior and exterior design
Class-competitive fuel economy from turbo engine
Entertaining handling

CONS
All-wheel drive is not available
No hybrid model
