The Buick Regal sports premium pricing and a more compact cabin than some popular mid-size family sedans.
We'd cross-shop it against the equally engaging Ford Fusion, our Best Car To Buy 2013.
The Fusion's just as handsome, has handling that's even more firmly wired, and has a larger back seat.
The Nissan Maxima has grabby styling, but it also has a CVT, an unappealing transmission with few virtues outside of simplicity and fuel economy.
The VW CC is closest to it, spec for spec, but has even less sporting intent.
The Acura TSX is big in its targets, and the Regal has comparable space and handling, with the boost of turbocharging on its side, not to mention much better styling.
Volvo's S60 is a wedgy Swedish delight, and offers all-wheel drive to go with its turbo boost.
