Sedan shoppers looking for a new family hauler or commuter vehicle will have plenty of options to choose from at their local dealership. However, doing research beforehand could make the difference between purchasing a high-quality vehicle that will last for years to come or purchasing a dud. One thing car shoppers should consider while doing their research is the last time a vehicle got a full refresh. Consider the 2018 Honda Accord and the 2018 Nissan Altima, both are well-respected sedan models with a history of happy customers. However, for the 2018 model year, the Accord saw a full refresh while the 2018 Altima hasn't seen one for years. When you factor in the similar starting MSRP for their base models, the 2018 Honda Accord starts pulling ahead in value.
