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: 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 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: 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: 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: 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 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: 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: 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
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 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 2011 Buick Regal CXL is a handsome ride that offers many of the tech features we like, but an odd cabin control scheme and uninspiring power train hamper our recommendation. Read review
The Bottom Line: The 2013 Ford Taurus presents cabin technology rich in features, from navigation to automatic parallel parking, in an easy-driving large sedan package, but the sluggish touch-screen response can be aggravating. Read review
Specs: Sedan, Limited 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: 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: 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
Specs: Sedan, Hybrid
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 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: Dodge gives the 2013 Dart an excellent cabin tech suite, impressive for a compact car, but uneven acceleration makes the 1.4-liter engine upgrade a questionable choice. Read review
Specs: Sedan, SE, Gas
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: 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 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 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: Combining a highly efficient hybrid power train with top-notch standard and optional cabin tech, the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid is both a great tech car and a great value. 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
