2014 BMW 5-Series

Known primarily for its sporty handling and powerful engine offerings, the BMW 5-Series also has a comfortable, if spartan, cabin and beautiful Teutonic styling.

2014 Hyundai Genesis

The Hyundai Genesis is the top-of-the-line offering from the Korean automaker who’s foray into luxury surprised many in the industry. An attractive cabin, surprisingly powerful engine offerings and a low price point make it an understated option for the luxury buyer.

Base price new: $35, 200
EPA mpg (city/highway): 18/27
Crash test ratings: IIHS – G/N/G/G/G, NHTSA – N/A

2014 Jaguar XF

The XF is a sport sedan with a luxurious interior that only Jaguar can offer. It’s agile, fleet-footed and posh. Rear seating is cramped, however, and trunk space is smaller than others in this class. However, the Jaguar XF is a beautifully made automobile with contemporary styling and British aplomb.

Base price new: $46, 975
EPA mpg (city/highway): 19/30
Crash test ratings: IIHS – N/A, NHTSA – N/A

2014 Lexus GS

More agile than its ES counterpart, the Lexus GS is comfortable and more dynamic in appearance. A top-shelf interior can be offset with beautiful bamboo trim and a hybrid option for this car improves both ride quality and efficiency thanks to better weight distribution. The GS sells very well, and for good reason.

Base price new: $47, 700
