More fuel-efficient than their larger counterparts and with more space than their compact cousins, midsize sedans are fast becoming the car of choice for people who want premium practicality but with no compromise on comfort or style. In addition, midsize sedans tend to handle better than larger or smaller cars. This ‘Goldilocks Effect’ is due to the even weight distribution of the car’s body over the axles. The result is a low and constant centre of gravity that allows the car to take bends without the body-roll you sometimes experience in both larger and smaller cars.
With so many midsize sedans on offer, it can be tricky to narrow down the list to the best in the market. Toyota has a reputation for producing exceptional midsize sedans, so which ones out of the Toyota range are the best? Here are our top three.
Slightly smaller than the Toyota Avalon, the Toyota Camry is one of the most popular cars on the UAE’s roads. Toyotas tend to hold their car resale value better than most, as they require very little maintenance and typically have a lifespan of around 645,000km. In addition, the Camry has a fuel-efficient V6 engine tucked under the bonnet, delivering that extra power just when you need it.
Cosmetically, the 2021 Camry is lower, wider, and sleeker than previous models, making it effortlessly stylish and good looking. The interior is roomy and plush, but with absolutely no compromise on safety. Features include intelligent cruise control, a frontal pre-collision function, and a lane departure alarm system.
Although it might be a little smaller, the 2021 Toyota Corolla still measures up as a midsize sedan car and packs plenty of features into that compact body. Also available as a hybrid option, the 2021 Toyota Corolla is fuel-efficient and reliable, and with the option to switch to electric power for those shorter city commutes, is also kinder to the environment.
For gadget fans, the car’s infotainment system boasts a seven-inch screen that’s now compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Safety-wise, it’s got everything you’d expect from Toyota, including eight airbags, automatic high beam, a pre-collision system, and adaptive cruise control. Nippy and zippy, this is an ideal car for smaller families or couples who like the extra room for luggage.
One of Toyota’s most popular models, the Yaris is a ground-breaking car that continues to set the bar high in the sedan market. Another of the smaller midsize sedans, the Yaris perfectly combines style, safety, and performance. The 1.5litre engine delivers around 17km/l on the open road and at around 12.75km/l in built-up areas, making it reliably fuel efficient.
The Yaris’ interior is significantly upmarket to satisfy even the pickiest of passengers. With two USB ports, a High Definition radio, and voice recognition systems, you can make the best use of your tech while you’re on the road. With a chrome-tipped exhaust and a streamlined, sports-car-inspired silhouette, the Yaris proves there’s no need to sacrifice style when driving a family car.
