Compact APS-C Camera with the Most Realistic JPEGs

Perhaps you would be willing to help me.

I am looking for a compact APS-C camera that produces the most realistic out-of-camera jpeg images. Beyond resolution and sharpness, I am mainly thinking of colors. I find that most cameras reviewed as having “pleasing” or “attractive” color jpegs have, to my eyes, exaggerated or un-naturally over-saturated colors. I don’t want “pop” – I’m looking for images that as closely as possible match the subject as I see it at that moment in real life. I’m aware that everyone’s eyes and brain see the world somewhat differently – but hope you know what I’m driving at. I’m not interested in a discussion of the relative aesthetic merits of various color styles of photography – just looking for compact gear giving the best chance to produce the most objective-looking jpeg images possible.

For the last five years I’ve been using a Sony RX-100 IV. My budget is $2K maximum; would prefer to spend less.

Can you please give me your opinion?
