BMW has long set the benchmark in this class; the 5-Series offers V-8 power and controversial styling.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is new for 2010, and its looks have tilted in a more angular, angrier direction; a V-8 and four-wheel drive are offered.
The Lexus GS probably trumps all these cars in its stellar dealership experience, and in truth the Jaguar XF bears more than a passing resemblance to it from the outside.
Then there's the slightly more pedestrian Audi A6, with its wide-ranging palette of engines and drivetrains, a wagon edition, and an interior that's a step backward from the rich library-like cabins that used to distinguish the brand.
