With such a vast array of models to choose from in this popular segment, making the right decision can seem like a daunting task. Fortunately, our team at Joe Rizza Auto Group is here to help you make the right choice. We’ve assembled our top selections for the best luxury sedans currently on the market (listed alphabetically for fairness).

Acura TLX

The longer, lower, and wider Acura TLX is an ideal choice for those who want a luxury sport sedan with traditional Acura dependability. The TLX offers an exhilarating driving experience thanks to its 272 horsepower 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Turn up the heat even more with the TLX Type S, which is powered by a 355 horsepower 3.0 liter V6. By default, the TLX is delivered with front-wheel drive, but the excellent Acura SH-AWD system is available as an option, offering superior handling and grip. Inside, you’ll find a high-quality, performance-oriented interior, with high-quality materials such as open-pore wood and aluminum trim. In terms of interior tech, a large, 10.5-inch heads-up display is available, as well as customizable ambient lighting. The TLX features plenty of safety technology onboard, too. Standard AcuraWatch features include forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assist. Despite its high-tech features, the TLX still offers a traditional sport sedan experience in the best way possible. Sculpted analog gauges give the cockpit a performance-oriented feel, while bolstered sport seats offer both comfort and increased support during high-speed maneuvers.

Alfa Romeo Giulia

When you absolutely need to have the most hardcore performance sedan in the price range, the answer is always the Alfa Romeo Giulia.

Move up to the Giulia Quadrifoglio and get a Ferrari-designed 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 pumping out a staggering 505 horsepower, which is more than you’re going to get in any other similarly-priced sedan. A sophisticated suspension and powerful Brembo brakes help set the Giulia apart even more. The Guilia’s gorgeous styling inside and out is a breath of fresh air in a segment full of similar-looking German boxes. All-wheel drive is available, as is adaptive suspension and a limited-slip differential. Inside you’ll find no shortage of luxury appointments either, with standard 10-way power heated seats and an optional 14-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system.

Maserati Ghibli

You might not think of a sedan as being a particularly exotic type of car, but the Maserati Ghibli proves that the right manufacturer can design and produce a sedan that excites the senses. The styling, the performance, and even the sound of the exhaust note on the Ghibli are all made to stir the passions of driving enthusiasts. Skipping right over the norm of offering a base 4-cylinder engine, Maserati has equipped the Ghibli with a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 in two different states of tune, one with 345 horsepower and one with 424 horsepower. Option up to the Ghibli Trofeo and you’ll find a 3.8-liter V8 under the hood, which puts out 572 horsepower and can accelerate the Trofeo to 60mph in just 4 seconds flat. Inside you’ll find an interior as stylish as the sheet metal on the exterior, with available Ermenegildo Zenga silk and leather upholstery, and a choice of Harmon Kardon or Bowers & Wilkins premium stereo systems. A huge selection of colors is available, and trim pieces can be had in piano black, wood, or carbon fiber..

Maserati Quattroporte

A large sedan that somehow looks sleek and feels nimble, the Maserati Quattroporte offers the kind of styling and driving fun that few manufacturers have even attempted in this segment. Those looking for an engaging sport sedan would typically need to sacrifice interior space and settle for something smaller, something without much of a back seat, trunk space, or truly top-shelf interior appointments – but the Quattroporte has all of those things, and can still top out at an amazing 203mph. Two engines are available for the Quattroporte, a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 that makes either 345 or 424 horsepower. The Quattroporte Trofeo comes with a 3.8-liter twin-turbo V8 that makes 572 horsepower. The interior is finished with high quality materials, including the option of Ermenegildo Zenga silk and leather upholstery. You can even opt for reclining rear seats, if for some reason you would rather sit back there than drive.

Porsche Panamera

Ever since its debut in 2010, the Porsche Panamera has redefined what it means to drive a performance-focused sports sedan. No other sedan is able to offer the track-focused handling of a coupe paired with business-class executive seating for adults quite like the Panamera. The extensive engine lineup of the Panamera includes a standard 2.9-liter turbo V6 producing 325 horsepower up to a muscular 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that cranks out an astounding 620 horsepower in the Panamera Turbo S. An electrified Panamera E-Hybrid variant provides near-instantaneous acceleration combined with outstanding efficiency. Supportive leather-trimmed seating gives you an ideal blend of comfort and body-hugging contours, and a redesigned steering wheel offers improved ergonomics and superior control. Porsche Communication Management includes a 12.3-inch high-resolution touchscreen display and is your central control for audio, navigation, and communication. Now, thanks to a retuned suspension and standard lane-keeping assist and traffic-sign recognition, the Panamera is even better than ever. Just a decade or so ago, it was nearly impossible to imagine a Porsche sedan. Now, we can’t imagine the Porsche lineup without it.
