Around The BlockOldies but still goodies.
Several solid mid-size sedans, including the Ford Fusion, the Saturn Aura, and the redesigned Toyota Camry, have been introduced in the past two years. But the evergreen Honda Accord remains a favorite. With a 3.0-liter V-6 and a six-speed manual, it's quick and fun to drive. The Accord's successor, due shortly, should further raise the bar. The outgoing Infiniti G35 coupe boasts muscular-almost American-flair. Despite minor issues such as drivetrain noise and a dated interior, this upscale Nissan 350Z twin is a blast, undercuts its European rivals in price, and makes us itch to drive the new coupe that will join the G35 sedan that debuted last fall.
