    I like the Taurus - and this updated model has evolved the car effectively - with a more aggressive and modern look, along with some nice detailing in the headlights and alloy wheels. Certainly a better looking proposition than Avalon, while the GM models still look too Japanese/Korean for my liking. Midesize doesn't have to equal "bland" so hats off to the distinctly American Taurus.
