Sometimes, we have to do it. Sometimes there really isn't much of an option; and Miata is not the answer. This is one of those times.

If you were to purchase a new midsize sedan, had less than $30k to spend, and had to go with an automatic transmission, what would you go for? Is the high torque number good enough to deal with the vomit-enducing visuals of a Malibu Turbo? Would you take the exciting Mazda6 despite its little four-pot? Tell us why in the comments!

Myself, I would be leaning toward a V6 Charger if this wasn't a midsize competition. So I'm really not sure what to go with, hence the QOTD
