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 the Avalon hybrid, nor the dynamic road manners of the Impala.
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 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.
The Buick LaCrosse is new this year, and it's much lighter and more lively than before, though its cabin is a little spartan and its ride a bit firm.
Ford's Taurus is the largest vehicle of this bunch on the outside, yet somehow its interior feels like one of the smallest.
It's also the oldest vehicle in this group, by a wide margin.
