It's not easy to stand out in the midsize sedan market, which is full of excellent, efficient, and borderline exciting rides like the Ford Fusion, the Mazda 3, and the Honda Accord. Subaru has always been a player in this segment, if a tad on the sidelines, but the brand has stepped up its game big time with the 2015 Legacy.
Land Rover's LR4 received a serious "refresh" for the 2014 model year. Gone is the V-8, replaced by a downsized (both in displacement and power) supercharged 3.0-liter V-6. Gone is the two-speed transfer case, although it's still available as an option. Gone, as well, is the LR4's face; it's been replaced with something that looks a little less like the last-generation Range Rover, although some of those elements do carry over even in the new visage.
The seventh-generation Hyundai Sonata benefits greatly from the recent restyling of the Hyundai Genesis. The new Sonata borrows many styling cues from the Genesis, which is a good thing, and inherits many of the Genesis's luxury features as well. All of this combines to transform what was a perfectly capable midsize sedan into the second-best midsize sedan on the market - and it's a very close second.
