The full-size sedan ranks seem to dwindle annually, but what’s left is a lineup of good choices.
If you’re looking at the Avalon, its Lexus ES cousin might not be that much more expensive.
Look to the Nissan Maxima if a sporty full-sizer is on your list, but even it’s not going to challenge BMW on a curvy road.
The Chrysler 300 and related Dodge Charger are natural athletes with good features and strong power, though their designs are showing their age against rivals with better interior space.The Kia Cadenza is a must-see for its upscale feel and exceptional ride quality.
