Every year, you our readers are kind enough to await with interest Auto123's verdicts in declaring the winners across various vehicle categories. This year, the battles were once again ferocious, with many of the votes very close. There were arguments and maybe a couple of tears.

Nevertheless, at the end of the day, 22 vehicles were declared winners in their category. If you want to know what are recommended buys in the midsize or full-size car segments, here’s what happened this year in this category.

Like with the subcompact and compact car segments, market realities have compelled us to group together the midsize and full-size car categories, previously considered separately for our awards.

The full-size segment in particular has contracted quite a bit in recent years, and so it gets placed in the same category as the midsize cars. The result? Even more ferocious competition.

In any case, our methods of evaluation remain as rigorous as before. The models considered are evaluated according to a number of factors, but in this category we place particular emphasis on comfort, ride smoothness, value, in-cabin experience and yes, also driving dynamics.

And like happens every year in this segment, the choice of a winner wasn’t an easy one. To wit, the finalists were the Hyundai Sonata, Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. There is simply no bad choice among these midsize sedans, all of which we can recommend in 2023.
