The E-Class family now counts wagons, convertibles, coupes and sedans among its children.
There’s an E-Class for anyone, unless, of course, you want something else.
Other options? The new Jaguar XF is a pretty, lighter-weight car with a plush ride and available turbodiesel power.
We're infatuated with the Cadillac CTS' steering feel and handling, and its Le Mans-style LED lighting, but it hasn't resonated as well with buyers.
The latest Lexus GS sedan now reaches from turbo-four power at the entry level, to GS F levels of V-8 power.
The E-Class' main rivals, though, are the still-handsome Audi A6, an excellent all-around performer with available all-wheel drive and S6 power, and the BMW 5-Series, which has begun to recover some of the elusive qualities that made BMW driving benchmarks for decades.
