The Jaguar XF slipped silently into a class of sedans that include some of the world's benchmarks for luxury and performance.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class gets a streamlined new look this year, and it's one of the few vehicles anywhere that offers the trio of powertrains: diesel, hybrid, and gas.
It's also sold as a coupe and cabriolet, and hyper-performing AMG editions.
The BMW 5-Series offers turbocharged V-8 performance and pretty impressive handling, though it's grown a little bloated in size and techno features.
The Audi A6 and A7 were new for 2012 and mechanically are quite closely related--but who doesn't prefer the A7's gorgeous styling? One final alternative is the Infiniti M56; it offers an athleticism that rivals that of the XF, but you'll have to deal with less interior glitz and more badge envy.
