It's not easy to be a runner-up in the midsize sedan market especially, as sober-voiced commentators say, in "these economic times." Cue thunder. Inevitably, the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord suck up all the market share, while the up-and-coming Chevrolet Malibu -- and the company that builds it -- steal headlines, offer discounts and win sympathy cash.

Japanese automakers have finally figured out what the Germans have known for years: Family sedans don't have to be boring. Following on the heels of Nissan's exhilarating overhaul of the Altima, Mazda will soon introduce the zoomy 6 sedan.

Honda, are you paying attention? Available late this year. Price not set.
