The 2015 Dodge Charger blends elements of family sedan and muscle car, playing both roles well.
Its platform mate the Chrysler 300 hasn't been updated as recently, but shares the same drivetrains with a more overtly luxurious interior.
The Ford Taurus has a similar visual presence, but it's cramped in the rear and needs the turbocharged EcoBoost engine to win for driving engagement.
The softer and smoother Hyundai Genesis falls more on the comfort side of the equation--and considerably less assertive.
The Chevy Impala, new last year, is surprisingly luxurious and spacious inside, though it fights the rental-car image earned by its predecessors.
Finally, the Jaguar XF may appear to be a left-field outlier, but it too has distinctive and elegant lines and strong V8 performance--making it more of a match for the high end of the Charger lineup than you might think at first glance.
