The 2014 Infiniti Q70 3.7 and Q70 5.6 sedans might not set a new benchmark for their class, but they do compete as true equals with the best of the German and Japanese alternatives.
The Audi A6 is fresh and well-equipped, with its own conservative take on style and a plush, detail-focused interior.
The Audi A7 ups the exterior styling ante while matching the A6's quality interior.
Both Audis offer compelling powertrain options, most notably a fun and efficient supercharged V-6.
The Jaguar XF is another good choice, with its rocket-quick 510-horsepower XFR version, or its more affordable, yet well-finished and uniquely styled trims--but it is a bit short on rear seat space.
The Lexus GS isn't as performance-oriented as the Infiniti Q70, but it is well-equipped and tastefully finished.
BMW's 5-Series matches or exceeds the Q70's handling, while offering even more available safety technology; Mercedes-Benz's E Class is perhaps the more formal option, though still sporty in its own right, too, and offering plenty of upgrades and equipment.
