ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

If you're interested in a new family sedan, you might be surprised to learn just how expensive some models are these days. Fortunately, you can save some money by considering a certified pre-owned (CPO) vehicle, which offers discounted pricing compared to a new model and the peace of mind of a manufacturer-backed warranty. We've rounded up six excellent certified pre-owned family sedans that offer a $5,000 discount compared to their original MSRP -- not bad if you're looking for a new family hauler on a tight budget.

2013 Ford Fusion

The Ford Fusion is one of our favorite midsize sedans thanks to its handsome styling, its wide array of powertrains and its excellent combination of fuel economy and driving enjoyment. But with a base price of around $23,000 -- and potentially much more once you add options -- the Fusion can get expensive in a hurry. Enter Ford's certified pre-owned program, which offers 1 year of bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage and up to 7 years of powertrain protection on select used models. We especially recommend a certified pre-owned 2013 Fusion, which gives you the car's desirable new body style for an average price of just under $20,000 on Autotrader.

2012 Honda Accord

The Honda Accord is an excellent midsize sedan thanks to its combination of impressive reliability, modern technology and a lot of desirable comfort and convenience features. But with a starting price of around $23,000 -- a figure that increases rapidly as you add options -- the Accord isn't cheap. Fortunately, there's Honda's excellent certified pre-owned program, which includes powertrain warranty coverage for up to 7 years or 100,000 miles from a car's original sale date -- not bad for a used vehicle. And you can easily find a certified pre-owned Accord at a budget-friendly price on Autotrader, as the average listing price for a 2012 model is around $17,400 -- a big discount compared to the new MSRP.

2012 Hyundai Sonata

With an average price of around $16,700 on Autotrader, a certified pre-owned Hyundai Sonata offers a discount of more than $5,000 compared to an all-new model. And while it doesn't offer the latest in Hyundai design language, only the most knowledgeable car enthusiasts will be able to tell the 2012 Sonata apart from the brand-new model. Featuring a roomy interior, lots of equipment, excellent safety features and three enticing powertrains, a certified pre-owned Sonata has a lot to offer, but the best part is Hyundai's excellent certified pre-owned warranty, which touts 5 years or 60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage and an excellent 10 years or 100,000 miles of powertrain protection.

2013 Kia Optima

The Kia Optima is one of the most handsome midsize sedans on the market thanks to modern, sculpted styling that we normally associate with a sporty coupe rather than a family sedan. Available as a new car from around $23,000 with shipping, we think the Optima makes an excellent choice for value-minded drivers who don't mind a certified pre-owned vehicle, as Kia's excellent program offers up to 5 years of bumper-to-bumper coverage and 10 years of powertrain protection. More importantly, it's easy to find a certified pre-owned Optima with a great discount compared to the new price, as 2013 models are available for an average price of around $19,800 on Autotrader.

2013 Nissan Altima

Fully redesigned for the 2013 model year, the Nissan Altima offers excellent reliability, two engines that range from frugal to powerful, a comfortable ride and a roomy interior. While a new Altima can be highly affordable -- base prices start around $23,000 with shipping -- the sedan gets pricey once you start tacking on options. Fortunately, CPO models are available with a good discount: Certified pre-owned 2013 Altima models are available for an average price of just $18,300 on Autotrader. In addition to offering all the benefits of a new Altima, these certified used versions offer 7 years or 100,000 miles of coverage from the car's original sale date.

2013 Volkswagen Passat

The Volkswagen Passat is a popular midsize sedan that prioritizes ride comfort, interior space and cargo room over sportiness and bold styling. While we wish the Passat was a little sportier -- and maybe a little more exciting to look at -- we recommend the car for drivers who want a roomy cruiser with lots of space and a miserly diesel engine option. But new models can be expensive, with prices starting above $22,000 with shipping and reaching as high as the mid-$30,000 range when fully equipped. Our solution? Get a certified pre-owned 2013 Passat, which is easy to find on Autotrader for around $19,000. It also comes with VW's excellent certified pre-owned warranty, which offers 2 years or 24,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage.
