The Malibu is the only ninth-generation sedan Chevrolet sells in the United States. The Malibu is offered in five trims, all with a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, except for the top-tier Malibu Premier model, which comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Like Chevy with trucks, the company offers the Malibu with many optional extras that can raise the price by thousands.
2. Toyota Prius
The Toyota Prius family includes the Prius and the Prius Prime. The Prius is a traditional hybrid, while the Prius Prime is a plug-in hybrid. Both offer excellent fuel economy, but their saloons are not as well equipped as the other small hybrid cars Toyota sells.
3. Kia Soul
You must have often heard the Kia Soul referred to as an SUV, but it looks more like a hatchback car because of its low ground clearance. In the updated version, Kia decided to continue the design approach of the first-generation Soul, so the current model retains a unique exterior style with a "funky" interior treatment.
4. Nissan Versa
The Nissan Versa is one of the least expensive cars you can buy in the U.S. Like the Sentra, the Versa comes with a long list of standard safety features under the umbrella of Nissan Safety Shield 360. It also has class-leading front legroom.
5. Dodge Charger
The Charger continues to find an audience after nearly a decade in its current generation. The car comes in seven variants for the 2021 model year, including three wide-body versions, two of which have the Hellcat engine.
6. Kia K5
The new-generation K5 replaces the last-generation Optima in the Kia lineup. In its most powerful variant, the K5 GT produces nearly 300 horsepower, and is priced at $32,000. The K5 also has a long list of standard and available features that make it a worthy purchase for car owners.
7. Hyundai Sonata
Hyundai added a sporty N version to the Sonata lineup for 2021 and kept the other trim levels of the midsize car. The Sonata still offers excellent cargo space and legroom. The model's interior and list of driver assistance features are more extensive than other cars in its class.
8. Kia Forte
Now in its updated third-generation version, the Kia Forte offers buyers better design, technology and equipment than it might seem at first glance because of its fairly low starting price. The Forte is larger than the Rio and directly competes with the Nissan Sentra, Toyota Corolla and Hyundai Elantra.
9. Nissan Altima
It's been a few years since the Altima got its redesign, but the model still sells well. It's bigger than the Sentra and, conversely, smaller than the Maxima. The sixth-generation Altima comes in Nissan's signature S, SR, SV, SL and Platinum trims.
10. Hyundai Elantra
Hyundai has developed the seventh-generation Elantra, which is included in the 2021 lineup. The car features the automaker's fresh design aesthetics and an interior that brings in a lot of money. In addition, the car is very comfortable to drive.
11. Nissan Sentra
The Sentra was updated a few years ago, winning praise from critics for its high-quality interior, fast, affordable engine and low price. The Sentra comes with a solid list of standard technologies, including the Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite of technologies.
12. Honda Accord
For the 2021 model year, the Accord has undergone a restyling. Despite the changes to the exterior, the biggest changes were inside, where the Accord's infotainment system was upgraded. Honda has kept Accord prices low despite the improvements.
13. Honda Civic
Just recently, a new version of the Honda Civic has been released. The updated 2022 Civic includes a fresh exterior that has a less polarizing look, as well as a new interior with a modern, simple style. The Civic sedan is now available. The new Civic hatchback will arrive at dealerships later this year.
The Toyota Corolla has been around since 1966. Currently in its twelfth generation, the car comes in sedan and hatchback versions. Toyota sells the Corolla in nine variants, including the Apex and Nightshade, which have been added in recent years. The Corolla Hybrid provides some of the most fuel-efficient driving modes.
15. Toyota Camry
The Toyota Camry is the best-selling car in the U.S. for 2021. For the current model year, Toyota is selling the Camry in 12 different variants, including the Camry Hybrid in various configurations and the sportier Camry TRD with a V6 engine.
