The Cadillac XTS is a large luxury sedan that tries to please old-school land-yacht captains and new-age Germanophile drivers.
If you're not shopping for AMG or M performance and can overlook badge envy, it's a great choice, particularly better at toting rear-seat passengers than a comparably priced E-Class or Audi A6.
Lincoln's MKS is both smaller and lacks CUE's intuitive controls to operate the infotainment system, and it's nearly finished its too-long showroom run, now that a new Continental is coming.
The Hyundai Genesis is comparable in size and priced more aggressively than the XTS, making it an interesting alternative for those unconcerned with brand prestige—but as of the 2017 model year, it'll be renamed and placed into a new luxury brand, as the Genesis G80.
Finally, the Acura RLX has sweet handling and lovely road manners, but its exterior styling is beyond anonymous.
