The Bottom Line: Due for an update, the 2013 Infiniti G37 relies on older tech under the hood and in the cabin, which might have been cutting-edge at launch but has become mostly average in the face of advances from the competition. Read review
Specs: Sedan, Gas
The Bottom Line: With the 2012 328i, BMW managed to retain its driving virtues while drastically increasing fuel economy. Cabin technology stays on the cutting edge with app integration and other connected features. Read review
Specs: Sedan, 328i, Gas
The Bottom Line: The 2011 Audi A4 comes with a high-tech engine and transmission and some excellent cabin tech features, making it an easy driver and very comfortable. Read review
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
Specs: Sedan, Hybrid
The Bottom Line: The 2011 Infiniti G37 Sedan Journey earns its price tag with great tech and performance, but its ride may be too sporty and harsh for its single-option automatic transmission and for its target audience. 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: 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: With excellent fuel economy, a comfortable interior, and really excellent cabin tech, the 2011 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid makes for a near perfect commuter car and general transportation. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2010 Lexus ES 350 serves no other purpose than to get four or five people from point A to point B in comfort, but some cabin tech quirks might annoy the driver. Read review
The Bottom Line: A luxury car with some sport pretensions, the 2011 Lexus IS 350 is very satisfying to drive, but suffers from a couple of cabin tech glitches. Read review
The Bottom Line: Firmly set as a luxury car (as opposed to a sports car), the 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS offers a suite of modern electronics and one of the better sound systems available in a vehicle. Read review
The Bottom Line: Acura's first hybrid is a premium compact car that promises 38 mpg, but its Honda Civic roots show through a little too clearly. Read review
Specs: sedan, wtechnology-package, Hybrid
The Bottom Line: The 2010 Ford Taurus SHO combines an impressively fast, cutting-edge engine with cabin tech that is still ahead of the competition--even after appearing in Ford cars for a year already. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2009 Audi Q5, in Prestige trim, offers some of the best tech of any small SUV, along with incredible road performance. Read review
Specs: SUV, Gas
The Bottom Line: Although the 2010 Toyota Avalon offers some usable tech features, much of it is older equipment previously seen in Lexus models. Read review
The Bottom Line: Even with more power and great handling, the 2010 Acura TSX V-6 desperately needs a cabin tech upgrade if it's to remain relevant. Read review
The Bottom Line: A really beautiful sedan, the 2009 Volkswagen CC VR6 Sport returns decent fuel economy and a comfortable ride, but the cutting-edge cabin tech has a few faults, and the car is pricey. Read review
Specs: Sedan, VR6, Gas
The Bottom Line: The 2011 Volvo S60 is a very enjoyable premium sedan, capable of sporty driving on the weekends and perfectly comfortable for an everyday commute. Frequently distracted drivers will appreciate the safety tech. Read review
Specs: Sedan, T6, Gas
The Bottom Line: While we love the 2010 Lincoln MKZ's cabin tech, the next model update should take advantage of more efficient engines currently under development at Ford. Read review
