Sport sedan buyers are likely to cross-shop the German trifecta that includes the C-Class, the Audi A4, and the BMW 3-Series.
The C is the prettiest of the bunch, while the 3-Series has the strongest engines and the A4 the most approachable technology.
The Alfa Romeo Giulia doesn’t lead the pack in any measurable way except for personality, and it’s positively dripping with Italian charm (and maybe motor oil).
The Jaguar XE is a subtle stunner worth a spot on your shopping list, though its infotainment can frustrate.
Infiniti’s Q60 is brilliant in some configurations, frustrating in others.
