The Bottom Line: The 2014 Mazda6 i Grand Touring outshines much of the competition in the battle for your midsize sedan dollars, hitting most of the right marks, but some of its luster is dulled by the more powerful and efficient turbo-diesel and i-ELOOP models just around the corner. Read review
Specs: Sedan, Gas

electronics industry and incorporating a long-range, powerful, and efficient electric drivetrain. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2013 Audi S7 features a phenomenal amount of tech both in the cabin and under the hood. An impressive sport driver, its fuel economy remains decent enough for a daily commute. Read review

The Bottom Line: The 2013 BMW 750Li does double-duty as a freeway cruiser and a getaway car, whether you drive it yourself or hire a chauffeur. A wide array of connected features add new capabilities to the already first-rate navigation and stereo systems. 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
The Bottom Line: The 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid looks good and can be had with very advanced driver assistance features, but buyers should expect fuel economy averaging around 40 mpg instead of the 47 mpg EPA test number. Read review
Specs: Sedan, SE, Hybrid
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: 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
The Bottom Line: Among midsize sedans, none is as technology-rich as the 2013 Ford Fusion, which mixes efficiency, driver assistance, and infotainment features in one attractive package. Read review
The Bottom Line: Volkswagen's new hybrid system in the 2013 Jetta is a winner, delivering good driving characteristics and excellent fuel economy, but the cabin tech lacks features for a car in this price range. Read review
Specs: Sedan, Hybrid
The Bottom Line: The 2013 Volvo S60 is an excellent alternative for BMW and Audi shoppers looking for a sporty, stylish sedan at a very reasonable price. Read review
Specs: Sedan, T5, Gas
The Bottom Line: The Entune-powered 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid XLE offers perhaps the best blend of performance, efficiency, and cabin comfort in Toyota's portfolio of vehicles. Read review
Specs: Sedan, XLE, Hybrid
The Bottom Line: The 2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 S provides good acceleration, thanks in part to its transmission tech, and handling that, while not sporty, is capable and predictable. Read review
Specs: Sedan, 2.5-s, Gas
The Bottom Line: The 2010 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG is a powerful and very satisfying sport sedan, but not practical for daily driving because of poor fuel economy. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2013 Lexus LS 460 F-Sport's performance upgrades don't transform it into a sports car, but add a sporty edge to the luxury sedan's already good cabin and comfort tech offerings. Read review
Specs: Sedan, Base, Gas
The Bottom Line: With its power and high-tech handling, the 2013 BMW M5's potential feels wasted on public roads, yet its driver-assistance and cabin-tech systems are the best in the business for road trips and daily commutes. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2013 Lexus GS 350 makes for a convincing high-tech cruiser. With the F Sport package, it has some real performance chops, although it falls short of a BMW M or Mercedes-Benz AMG. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2013 Chevrolet Malibu LTZ is a comfortable ride with a good level of standard cabin tech, but it's a few thousand bucks overpriced when compared with the competition from Ford, Honda, and Toyota. Read review
Specs: Sedan, LTZ, Gas
The Bottom Line: With more power and more tech, the 2012 Hyundai Sonata SE 2.0T offers a lot of bang for your buck. Read review
Specs: Sedan, SE, Gas

Specs: Sedan, 328i, Gas
The Bottom Line: The 2012 Ford Focus Sedan SE is a good value, delivering simple yet effective cabin tech and efficient performance without lots of distracting frills. Read review
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: As optioned, this example of a 2012 BMW 335i makes for an acceptable commuter car with some very advanced cabin tech features and good fuel economy, but a few different choices could turn it back into an ultimate driving machine. Read review
Specs: Sedan, 335i, Gas
