With every automobile manufacturer on the face of this earth pumping up their crossover and SUV productions to keep up with demanding trends that have flooded the entire automotive community, the luxury sedan segment has taken quite a hit. Many manufacturers have either streamlined their portfolio by axing some of their products to make way for even more crossovers, or have substantially shifted their focus to the hot segment right now while pushing others out of the limelight.
Yes Luxury sedans aren’t the biggest thing that people talk about right now, but for the niche few that still wouldn’t budge from their stand of only going for these machines due to their superior ride quality, luxurious interiors and spacious cabins, we do have a treat for all of you. The luxury sedan segment might be a neglected segment in 2020 but there is no shortage of exceptional products available for sale on the market right now. Some of the best options that should definitely make their name on your consideration list are mentioned below in an increasing order of how much they are going to hurt your wallet:
2020 Dodge Charger
If a luxury sedan that has exquisite materials, costs six figures and is best ridden in the rear passenger seat is your idea of the perfect sedan, then the Dodge Charger is certainly…Not! The car for you. The Charger is among the more affordable offerings on the list and doesn’t really boast of a cabin that makes you feel like you are travelling in business class, but if hauling your family and burning a ton of rubber while you are at it is something that peaks your interest then the Charger definitely deserves a deeper look especially if the 707hp is within the budget.
2020 Kia Cadenza
The Kia Cadenza strictly speaking doesn’t fall into the “luxury sedan” price bracket, but this vehicle from Kia is definitely worthy of it’s mention due to the value proposition it brings to the table. The Cadenza could be a perfect entry vehicle into the world of luxury sedans as this Kia offers great construction materials, a spacious cargo area and a silky ride that could go toe to toe and maybe even excel compared to others in the segment.
2020 Nissan Maxima
Nissan might not be having a really great time when it comes to its sales numbers, but the Japanese manufacturer surely does know how to make a vehicle that is dependable and ticks major boxes for the prospective clientele. The Maxima is an affordable sedan for the masses that can be had with a smooth V6 that pushes out 300 ponies. The Toyota Avalon might have a better interior and cargo space when compared to the Maxima but the Maxima might appeal more to a buyer looking for the simplest means of respectable transportation.
2020 Toyota Avalon
The amount of flexibility that is offered by the Toyota Avalon to be able to cater to every type of buyer is commendable. The Avalon can be tricked up to be whatever it’s buyer wants it to be since the various trim levels transform it from a lovely highway cruiser to a feisty little handler depending on what you choose. No matter which variant you decide to bring home, one can be rest assured that the Avalon isn’t going to be a pain when it comes to fuel bills.
2020 Volvo S90
The Volvo S90 definitely gets overshadowed by the German brands as the S90 is one of the most underappreciated cars in its segment. The S90 looks amazing, drives well, has great looking and fresh interiors and is surprisingly fuel efficient for it’s class. The plug in hybrid variants is one of the most fuel efficient on the market while even the humble V6 can touch a modest 25 mpg.
2020 Kia K900
When going out and looking for a sedan, most people get gravitated towards the big names from Deutschland and the rest wander off to British equivalents. So a Korean vehicle would sound like quite a far fetch to consider in the running, but as you may have realized after witnessing the plethora of Korean offerings in this list, Korean sedans are definitely giving others a run for their money. The K900 is a strong rival to the usual offerings from the segment as it comes loaded with a Nappa leather interior, ventilated and heated seats, heads up display, 17 speaker audio system and a 12.3 inch touchscreen among the most notable.
2020 Genesis G90
The Genesis brand has created quite a reputation for itself after being segregated from it’s parent company-Hyundai. The Genesis G90 is definitely the modern iteration of what the Hyundai Equus used to be back in the day. The G90 might be a tough pick for some buyers due to the Korean brand image not being as strong as it’s German rivals, but the G90 would definitely be our pick if value for money was something that you would even remotely consider while shopping for your next buy.
2020 Tesla Model S
The Model S from Tesla might just be their most influential model as it has single handedly made the general public grasp the concept of depending on an electric vehicle for everyday transportation which is no small task. The Tesla is the best EV sedan that one can buy today and arguably the best sedan period. The minimalist interior, huge touchscreen, constant betterment via OTA updates and the “LUDICROUS” Mode are all things that pull you towards the Model S like a junkie to narcotics.
Who wouldn’t want to thrash supercars on their grocery runs? Right?
2020 Audi A8
The Audi A8 is the flagship sedan in Audi’s portfolio and goes head to head with the Mercedes Benz S-Class and the BMW 7 Series. The revamped version of the iconic sedan features an interior to die for and technology that justifies the high price tag and more. The open pore wood coupled with the soft leather and other supple materials make for an unbelievable cabin experience. The Audio Virtual Cockpit, reclining rear seats, foot massagers and a planted and compliant ride make for one of the best products from Audi currently.
2020 Porsche Panamera
The Panamera though initially was a hideous sight to behold, has grown into a much more mature and sophisticated looking vehicle that can hold the title of one of the best selling large sedans with no hesitations for Porsche. The Panamera features the iconic Porsche DNA in terms of it’s handling characteristics and can be had with up upto 677 hp if you are willing to cough up a serious ball of cash.
2020 Mercedes Benz S-Class
The Big Daddy Benz seldom needs an introduction since the S-Class is definitely the gold standard in the industry when it comes to checking out luxury sedans. The S-Class has everything that a prospective buyer with deep enough pockets could ask for and frankly speaking, even more. It comes with ballistic performance when specced right, a ride that is akin to riding a cloud and interior features that cover details that one has never witnessed before.
