The Hyundai Azera sits between comfort-oriented mainstream models and super-refined luxury sedans.
Like the Toyota Avalon and Chevrolet Impala, it has a newfound sense of style.
The Azera can't meet the fuel economy of hybrid versions of both the Avalon and Lexus's ES.
The Lexus ES has traditionally been the pick for those who want the creamiest, most isolated luxury-sedan experience, although its Avalon cousin gives it a run for the money when it comes to both price and design.
The Buick LaCrosse gets a standard eAssist mild-hybrid system, paired with a four-cylinder engine, achieving 37 mpg on the highway.
The Ford Taurus is the largest vehicle of this bunch on the outside, yet somehow its interior feels like one of the smallest; a new version of the Taurus is in the works, with a more efficient turbo four-cylinder engine as well.
The Acura TLX (which has replaced the TLX) may be the most exciting of this bunch to drive; it handles very well—even in its base form—but its back seat isn't as roomy as most of the others.
