Over-the-top styling is a wonderful thing; both import and domestic automakers are producing vehicles that look like as if they were dropped off by a time machine.Â However, the concerned driver can still find quite a range of family sedans that embody the latest technology, packaged in a design that is luxurious but affordable. These well-priced luxury and near-luxury cars provide tremendous value mated to a refined presence on the road. Of all the cars on our list, not a single one has a starting MSRP that exceeds $30,000.
Of course, you'll find quite a few family sedans available that are just plain boring.Â They might offer decent performance and operation, but the level of technological sophistication is lacking, to say the least.Â Their designs are also antiquated, making these poor choices for the discerning driver who wants a bit of all worlds.Â Thankfully, within our Top 10 list, you'll find vehicles that break out of the humdrum mold, without entering the area of outrageous design or price.
We ranked only 10 luxurious family sedans sedans for our list.Â However, these 10 vehicles embody the best of understated luxury, providing several flagship models, though all are reasonably priced for the market segment. You'll find vehicles from domestic automakers, as well as well-known European and Asian automakers within this category.
Each vehicle was chosen on a wide range of criteria.Â For instance, price and luxury were obviously high on the list, but performance and available features were also used. Style, design and finish were also included among our criteria.Â While style was certainly one of our considerations, none of these vehicles is outrageous and all will be equally at home at a soccer game or a country club. You will find a wide mix of modern and traditional styling, though all vehicles offer excellent value, performance and luxurious comfort.
