Speed Dating: Getting to Know 6 Sedans With Distinctly Different Personalities

You might be looking for just that right sedan that inspires you, yet reflects who you truly are.  Choices and personalities run the gamut.

Buick LaCrosse-Large and Elegant

Quiet, comfortable, composed and refined, the newest LaCrosse models reaffirm Buick as a luxury carmaker.  LaCrosse is a match for those who cringe at the thought of mid-size.  Its spacious interior can comfortably transport a whole group of tall or large passengers while a strong V6 propels them with ease.

Lincoln MKZ–McConaughey Worthy

Loaded out of the box, Lincoln’s MKZ integrates luxury and technology.  Choose from the base turbocharged four-cylinder engine or or 40 mpg hybrid powerplant for the same price, or opt for turbocharged V6 for 400 hp on the AWD version or 350 hp with front-wheel drive to vault the MKZ to a high-performance Euro-feel sedan.

Lexus GS F–Athletic and Stylish

The GS F  is infused with plenty of attitude with amplified engine sounds pumped through the car’s audio system to remind you that you’re behind a 467-hp 5.0-liter V8 engine.   With the option to turn off the engine noise, it takes on a different personality with improvements to its brakes and suspension and continuously variable dampers to ensure the ride quality that Lexus buyers expect. 

Chevrolet SS Sedan–American hero

If you’re a gearhead looking for a rear-wheel drive sedan, get the Chevy SS now while it’s still being made by GM.   With five seats, it’s a family-friendly burn-out machine with a 415-hp LS3 smallblock engine great for laying rubber.    The true gearhead will select the manual transmission version.

Chrysler 300S–Bold and Edgy

The Chrysler 300S is another option if it’s a big, heavy, rear-wheel drive luxury/sport sedan that you desire.   While the standard 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 is truly sufficient, many who find the 300S their match will upgrade to a 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 and enhance its eight speed automatic transmission with the Auto Stick sport mode and die cast paddle shifter option.

Volkswagen Passat–Practical and Proven

If German is your car language and you appreciate a mid-size sedan with reserved but classy styling, a big trunk, roomy and quiet cabin, refined ride and ample features for the money, the VW Passat may be your perfect Fräulein.  Choose from a turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, or a 3.6-liter V6 mated to a six-speed dual-clutch automatic.
