The Bottom Line: The 2013 Volkswagen CC would be an impressive car if it were priced in the mid-20s. At $35,000, its sparse cabin tech does not measure up with the competition. Read review
Specs: Sedan, Lux, Gas
The Bottom Line: The 2010 Acura TL SH-AWD drives like a sports car, but it works as a daily commuter. Its cabin tech is all very good, but Acura doesn't break any new ground. Read review
Specs: Sedan, Gas
The Bottom Line: The 2010 Mercedes-Benz S400 Hybrid bundles a wide array of very useful tech, and its hybrid system helps the car avoid the gas guzzler tax. Read review
Specs: Sedan, Hybrid
The Bottom Line: It may look like a sport sedan on paper, but the 2012 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec's feature additions amount to little more than a styling upgrade. Read review
Specs: Sedan, Gas, 5.0-liter V8
The Bottom Line: Among the stiff economy car competition, the 2013 Mitsubishi Lancer SE sets itself apart only by its impressive all-wheel-drive system, a feature with limited appeal. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2011 Hyundai Sonata is a great value, packing in a strong assortment of standard and optional cabin tech, good looks, and performance, all while maintaining a relatively low price. Read review
The Bottom Line: A smooth driver for a commute and an exciting ride for fun, the 2010 Audi S4 offers refined cabin tech and good fuel economy. It comes close to being a perfect tech car. Read review
The Bottom Line: It may not be the fastest, greenest, or most high-tech car in its class, but the 2011 Hyundai Elantra GLS has possibly the best balance of those attributes at a great value. Read review
Specs: Sedan, GLS, Gas
The Bottom Line: Larger than you would expect for a midsize sedan, the 2013 Nissan Altima offers distinctive ride quality and some surprising available cabin tech, but engine choices slip behind the tech curve. Read review
Specs: Sedan, 3.5 SL, Gas
The Bottom Line: Despite being a big, performance-oriented sedan, the 2014 Jaguar XJR acts as gentle as a kitten when driven around town, but cabin electronics don't push any tech boundaries. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2010 Mazda6 is a thoroughly average car in a boring segment, but a couple of tech features keep it from total mediocrity. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2012 Infiniti M35h pushes the envelope with its hybrid system and its driver assistance features, making for one of the most economical luxury sedans, without sacrificing power. Read review
Specs: sedan, Hybrid
The Bottom Line: We like that the HS250h packs a good deal of cabin tech and luxurious refinements, but we wonder if the decidedly average fuel economy is worth the additional complexity of the hybrid drive train. Read review
The Bottom Line: Mercedes-Benz bolsters its reputation for luxury with the 2012 CLS550. A powerful and efficient engine propels this sleek ride, and there are a number of advanced driver-assistance features. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2012 Volkswagen Passat is mostly a very average car, suitable for its segment, but offers a stand-out audio system and exterior styling that sets it apart from the competition. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2011 Kia Optima SX makes the midsize sedan interesting through fine cabin appointments, plenty of power, and unique exterior styling. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2013 Lexus ES 300h is a solid option for drivers looking for a premium hybrid. Unfortunately, its cousin -- the 2013 Toyota Avalon Hybrid -- is just as good, but a much better value. Read review
Specs: sedan, Gas
The Bottom Line: With excellent ride quality, a sound-deadened cabin, and a superb audio system, the 2010 Lexus LS 460 is a very comfortable luxury cruiser. But its tech is conservative, failing to push any boundaries. Read review
The Bottom Line: The much-improved 2012 Dodge Charger R/T offers a good blend of power and cabin technology, but could use a bit more refinement where efficiency and ease of use are concerned. Read review
Specs: Sedan, R/T, Gas
The Bottom Line: The smooth and quiet 2013 Jaguar XJ makes driver comfort its top priority, but an aging cabin technology package and an unrefined fuel-saver system give a rough edge to this refined ride. Read review
Specs: Sedan, Base, Gas
The Bottom Line: The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu Eco is a competent highway cruiser with a good baseline of cabin tech, but its eAssist mild-hybrid system doesn't really deliver the miles per gallon. Read review
Specs: Sedan, Eco, Hybrid
The Bottom Line: The 2011 Audi A8 is an exceptional luxury sedan, with top-of-the-line infotainment and driver assistance features and performance tech that makes it handle like a sports car. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Coupe strikes a balance between luxury and sport, with engaging driving and high quality cabin electronics, while presenting a very stylish exterior. Read review
Specs: Coupe, Gas
The Bottom Line: With a powerful yet efficient engine and high-tech suspension, the pricey 2012 Porsche Panamera Turbo S delivers near-supercar performance, but the cabin electronics fall short of cutting-edge. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2013 Lexus GS 450h is a tech tour de force, getting outrageously good fuel economy for this class of car with its hybrid drive system, and giving drivers the convenience of popular apps integrated with the cabin electronics. Read review
