This crowded segment includes two German competitors that also offer station-wagon versions with similar options, including all-wheel drive.
The Japanese competitors from Lexus and Infiniti put their emphasis instead on V-8 power and technology, with the Lexus GS also being made in a Hybrid model.
The Cadillac STS sports angular, American style and big V-8 power, and it offers all-wheel drive, while Jaguar's slinky new XF sedan comes only with V-8 power, supercharged or not, and a glamorous, cutting-edge interior.
