Finding the perfect new or used car is the dream of many shoppers across the country, and thanks to affordable auto financing, great deals and a wide range of options, this goal is easier to achieve than ever before.

According to, a number of mid-size sedans on the market today provide good value and quality for interested buyers. The Nissan Altima took the top spot for most affordable, with a relatively low starting price combined with manageable fuel costs. Also on the list were the Hyundai Sonata GLS, Toyota Camry LE and Kia Optima LX, among others.

"The midsize sedan remains one of the most popular types of cars on sale today," said Joe Wiesenfelder,'s executive editor. "They serve as a great option for so many different types of car shoppers because of their often roomy interiors and impressive standard features all at an affordable price."

In addition, Kelley Blue Book reported a rising average transaction price, or ATP, for light vehicles in the U.S. In May, prices hit $32,307, up 2.1 percent on a yearly basis. However, that figure is $79 below levels noted in April of this year.
