Quick Specs
The 2016 Volvo S80 makes safety and comfort the priority; it's a better long-distance than tight-corner performer.
The 2016 BMW M5 is the king of the 5-Series mountain, which isn't a bad place to be. It just may not be king of the sports sedan mountain anymore.
The 2016 Cadillac XTS has virtues beyond its size; as a VSport, it's an exceedingly comfortable, quick cruiser.
The 2016 Jaguar XF may be made of aluminum, but it's no lightweight anymore in rear-seat space or nimble handling.
The 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers elegant comfort and luxury in several flavors, with a thrifty diesel and a high-performance V-8 for those at either end of the spectrum.
