New Car Deals for March 2012: Midsize Cars

Last Updated: Mar 11, 2012

Midsize cars still represent the midsection of the auto industry and carmakers want to keep it from becoming flabby with excess inventory. So generous incentives continue as the norm here. Of the models in our Top Deals list, the Mitsubishi Galant is the oldest and will be discontinued at the end of the 2012 model year. The 2012 Malibu and Fusion are being replaced by all-new model-year 2013 offerings that promise added sophistication, albeit at higher price tags. The 2012 Chrysler 200 and Dodge Avenger represent recently updated versions of these corporate twins. Despite revised interiors, exterior styling tweaks and new V-6 powertrains, they still lag behind the leaders in this segment for performance and engineering.
