Volvo S60 Recharge · Volvo S90 · Audi A6 · Alfa Romeo Giulia That's why today we decided to celebrate our collective love for cars by offering them our own top 25 of the best cars out there. However, what type of cars are we going to choose? Luxury sports sedans, obviously. The Audi S8 is an incredibly beautiful machine that comes with great acceleration and one of the smoothest maneuvers on the market. Overall a great choice despite its rather high price.
The Acura TLX Type S, one of the few 5-seater cars on the market, which comes fully equipped with 5 trim levels, is one of those cars that you carry with you for the rest of your life, regardless of how big your monthly salary is. It has a 255 hp four-cylinder turbo engine with 2.0 or 3.0 liters available, and that's not even the best part. It's very easy to handle and a great choice for new drivers who want to stand out. The Civic Si sedan receives a special 200-horsepower version of the Civic EX's 1.5-liter turbo, along with a stiffer suspension and a phenomenal 6-speed manual transmission.
The WRX offers taut handling and all-weather capability, plus a sporty interior and features in a compact yet practical sedan. It has a powerful standard horsepower, with 271 horsepower, and a new GT version as the top equipment level. Mazda3 hits well above its weight for cabin quality. The clean, sleek fit and finish and design make some luxury cars run for their money.
The infotainment system is clearly inspired by the BMW iDrive and even includes a rotating dial on the center console. This setup has problems, and things as simple as using the radio can be a little confusing or annoying. The Kia K5's standard 180-horsepower turbo-4 is decent, but GT models have a 290-horsepower version of the engine that's a lot more fun. The K5 has a good price, despite its premium and sporty look.
It's also pleasant to drive, thanks to its compound handling and smooth ride. All versions have a spacious trunk, but the space in the rear seats is not on par with that of its rivals. The K5 scores strong in crash tests and includes several standard ADAS features. Other standard features include an easy-to-use 8-inch touchscreen and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The standard 158-horsepower, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine does a decent job of getting the Volkswagen Jetta around town, but the GLI's 228-horsepower turbocharged engine feels more fun. The Jetta also has good crash test scores and a decent amount of standard ADAS features, though some of the options here (such as adaptive cruise control and automatic high beams) come standard on rivals. Other compact sedans on this list offer better interior materials, and the Jetta certainly doesn't have the driving dynamics of the Mazda3, but it still offers plenty of room for passengers and equipment. It also has easy-to-use controls, including its intuitive touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Buyers can opt for wireless versions of these connectivity features, as well as wireless device charging and a digital instrument panel. The Hyundai Elantra has gone from being an economical and frugal car to becoming a major player among small sedans. It's a tremendous value, combining a low starting price with a long list of standard features. It also has balanced handling and a line of engines that offer solid acceleration, especially the 276-horsepower engine of the Elantra N.
The cabin materials may seem low quality at times, but it is equipped with an easy-to-use touchscreen with Apple CarPlay wireless and Android Auto wireless. From its sinister style to its rear-wheel drive (RWD) and optional V8 engines, which offer four performance boosts, ranging from powerful 370 horsepower to 797 horsepower that melts tires, the Charger is clearly not about quiet comfort. Equipped with an energetic 300-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder V6 engine or a 368-horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine, the Kia Stinger accelerates quickly and handles very well. Its cabin has leather upholstery, luxurious seats and plenty of space for passengers and cargo.
All models come with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, wireless device charging and the UVO 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. ADAS features such as blind spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, and rear cross traffic alert are standard. Under the hood, the TLX has a new 272-horsepower turbo-4 engine that is quite powerful, but only average when it comes to gasoline mileage. Type S model receives 355-horsepower V6 and other performance improvements.
All TLX sedans offer impressive handling. In addition to a full set of ADAS features, the TLX comes standard with an infotainment display, a touch controller, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Few vehicles combine luxury, performance and technology like the BMW 3 Series. It also scores impressive crash test scores, which can't be said for all rivals.
While Series 3 may not have the most powerful base engine in its class, it is attractive, smooth and fuel-efficient. Powerful engine options are available, but you have to opt for much more expensive and performance-oriented models, such as the M3, to achieve them. That said, no matter which model you choose, the current Series 3 isn't as sporty as previous versions. Series 3 offers competitive interior space and a spacious trunk.
Standard equipment includes an 8.8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a variety of ADAS functions. The Audi A5 Sportback is both visually appealing and highly versatile. Unlike other small luxury vehicles in the segment, the A5 Sportback has a rear rear tailgate for additional storage, although it could use more headroom in the rear seats. It also generates good fuel economy and performs well in crash tests.
Model 3 is currently one of the best-selling electric vehicles in the U.S. UU. And the best-selling electric vehicle in the world. It has lively acceleration, agile handling, plenty of cargo space and a modern, spacious interior.
The Performance twin-engine model is one of the fastest vehicles on the road today, due to its AWD grip and the enormous performance inherent in electric cars. Nearly all Model 3 features are controlled via the sedan's large, vertically oriented touchscreen. It doesn't offer integration with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, but it does offer premium connectivity, adding maps, live traffic visualization, in-car internet, music, media, games, and more. Model 3 has more range than all similarly priced electric cars, as well as access to Tesla's patented supercharger network, which provides ultra-fast charging in locations across the U.S.
It also has a lot of ADAS functions. Great power, style and luxury make the Volvo S60 Recharge an alternative to common European sedans. That's why this compact four-door sedan has all-wheel drive, a high-powered engine and a performance-tuned suspension. The Cadillac CT5, the only luxury domestic sedan competing with the E-Class, is half an inch shorter.
This car right here could very well be one of the best of the best, it literally has everything you could ask for from a sports sedan and more. But, perhaps more to the point, is the CT5-V a real Cadillac? That is both the problem and the opportunity for this sleeper sedan. If you're looking for a balance between performance, comfort and practicality, here are the best sports sedans to choose from, from the cheapest to the most expensive. It takes almost every aspect of the sedan's performance and elevates it to a higher level for a more responsive feel and breakneck acceleration.
While sedans are definitely a little more specialized than we'd like to think, the truth is that any of these incredible selections will make a great addition to your garage, and that's a fact. A unique combination of athleticism and luxury makes the Audi S8 an attractive option for those looking for a fun-to-drive luxury sedan that can be driven every day. However, this electrified luxury sedan has a small trunk space and less driving range than key competitors. One of the best luxury sedans in the world, the powerful and majestic BMW 7 Series delivers on its promise of luxury, refinement, technology and design.
It may not have the brand prestige of its competitors, but in all other respects it is a satisfying sports sedan with few shortcomings. The Acura TLX is an attractive, comfortable and fun to drive mid-size luxury sedan that offers a superior driving experience at a price that makes it an excellent value. . .
