10 Best Cars On The Market

Best Midsized sedan
2013 Nissan (NSANY) Altima
MSRP: $21,860

It's absolutely impossible to stifle a yawn at this category. It's like picking the best pair of loafers, the best Norah Jones song or the best bologna sandwich and chicken soup combo. Even if it's better than all the rest, it's still fairly boring.

Even the car-buying public just doesn't care anymore. Midsize car sales are absolutely flat at 0.8%. America still needs midsize cars, but it likely needs some new socks and an eye exam, too. It doesn't mean it's particularly excited any of the above.

That said, the Altima is the best at boring the life out of the automotive market. It's like a cinderblock, a good tomato paste or Eli Manning's haircut -- steady, reliable, does its best when it's reminding you it's not there. Its combined 33 miles only comes up when families realize they haven't stopped for gas in a while. Its 15.4 cubic feet of cargo capacity isn't a whole lot, but it's enough to contain the groceries, a weekend's worth of luggage or any complaints about it not being larger. The cabin is quiet, the new tech features include satellite radio, Pandora, Bluetooth and hands-free texting, and safety options include blind-spot monitoring, a lane-departure warning system and a moving-object detector.

It's enough to pique interest, but not so much that people might actually get excited about it. In the world of midsize vehicles, that's what it takes to be the best.
