We get it; everyone loves the crossover. It’s roomy, it’s efficient, and it can be seen at every pee-wee soccer game from here to Nantuket. But what if you don’t like the crossover, in fact, what if you loathe the idea so much that you’re only alternative is a large and in-charge family sedan?
Here’s 7 sedans worth taking a look at:
The Aston Martin of full-size sedans has arrived. Arguably one of the best looking sedans on the market today, the Fusion also sports enough room for five, trunk room enough for loads of sports equipment, and a hybrid variant that gets close to 50 mpg. Not too shabby.
Alongside the Fusion, the Chevy Impala is just one of many sexy new sedans in the market. Underrated by many, the Impala is a full-size with a pedigree and about 31 mpg at the helm.
We drove the new Mazda6, and while it was nothing to shout about from the hilltops, it was definitely a worthy competitor. It’s got looks, it’s got mpg, and most importantly, room enough for five.
Unlike the first three, the Genesis does come in a bit pricier. But for the price, you get a loaded new technology package with all the amenities you’d expect from a luxury full-size; navigation, bluetooth, lane departure warnings, the whole shebangabang.
The first four choices are definitely the tame and timid options, but how about a sedan that can get the kids to soccer practice and burn some rubber along the way? Let’s start off with the Chrysler 300 SRT. A 6.4-liter HEMI V8 dishes out 470, yet still delivers 23 mpg.
Jag’s latest and greatest large sedan is not one to be overlooked. With a 5.0-liter V8 and 542 horsepower, this is one mean kitty. At $99K, it’s definitely pricey, but for all that price you get power and usability.
Essentially, a rebadged Pontiac G8, the Chevrolet SS brings back to the lineup one of the best GM sedans ever built. A 6.3-liter, 415-hp V8 sits under the hood, and price is a measly $44,470. Definitely a great buy.
