If you're looking for a deal on a mid-sized car, it may be cheaper to buy a new model than a used one.

Kelly Blue Book lists three sedans among the top deals for new mid-sized cars.

It says the 2012 Hyundai Sonata, Kia Optima and Chrysler sedan actually cost less to purchase than last year's models -- that's because of cash-back incentives and lower finance charges for new cars.

Kelly Blue Book also says the new Hyundai and Kia both get slightly better gas mileage than the older versions of those cars.
