The 2013 Audi A6 and S7 family goes up against a wide range of models, from rather staid and traditional to high-performance.
Models such as the Mercedes-Benz E Class and BMW 5-Series offer just as wide of a lineup, and the E-Class is offered both in clean-diesel and hybrid models.
The Infiniti M is the fabulous looker of this pack; V-6 versions are a little too throaty for our tastes, but the rear-driver's handling is brilliant and its tech features equal those on the Audi.
The Chrysler 300 is an intriguing alternative, with arguably better handling than the A6, available all-wheel drive, and a smoking SRT8 performance version.
Some might think of the Lincoln MKS as an odd one for this list, but it's quite distinctive, roomy inside, and very safe.
Plus, EcoBoost versions of the MKS are very quick.
