The death of the sedan has been widely exaggerated. Sedans may not be the moneymakers they once were, but body style remains important to many brands’ lineups. These four doors come in a variety of forms, from performance-oriented sports sedans to practical family sedans to flashy luxury sedans. No matter what your needs are, there’s a sedan that should meet them.
