A couple of interesting things happened on the way to the final votes of the Autobytel 2014 Sedan of the Year. First, this year's winner handily topped the #2 and #3 cars, both being what are referred to as "aspirational luxury cars," showing how well this family-oriented winner is built. The second thing is that I recalled that in last year's Sedan of the Year article I wrote:
"With its global platform, highly fuel efficient, low-liter, turbo-assisted gas powered engines, hybrid and plug-in electric options, there seems to be a Fusion for every mid-size driver except the one who wants a diesel."
The sedan segment has a lot of competition but we are raising our glasses to 3 upstart sedans; all-new competitors that will leave the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry to those afraid of trying on something new.
