Hottest New Luxury Sedans for 2014

Hottest New Luxury Sedans for 2014

6. Jaguar XJ

A bit of British nobility floods the senses when piloting the 2014 Jaguar XJ . Under the hood of the XJ, with nearly all of its mass aft of the front axle, is an all-aluminum supercharged 3.0-liter V6 rated at 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent through a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, sourced from ZF. The cabin is absolutely unforgettable, with a low dashboard and sumptuous luxury details and composes a better backseat infotainment and comfort setup, as well as all-wheel drive on the supercharged XJ.

5. Lexus GS350

The new generation GS350, though, is a big step forward from previous generations. The 3.5-liter V6 churns out 306 horsepower and mates well with the six- speed automatic. Fortunately, Lexus still makes high-quality interiors with tight fit lines and sumptuous materials. While the lexuso system is below par, the optional 12.3-inch widescreen navigation display is one of the best in the business and will fascinate your passengers.

4. Aston Martin Rapide S

There’s a whole new front-end structure in the Rapide S, a revised engine, a reinforced body, a reappraised chassis, a freshened-up cabin – as well as that thrusting new grille. This car, they say, pushes the company’s four-door model through two specific performance watersheds: it takes less than 5.0sec to hit 60mph, and is capable of 190mph flat out.
