Infiniti Q50

While everyone else is opting for German brands or a Lexus, dare to be different with an Infiniti.


The Q50 pushes the Infiniti brand to a new level of overall quality, plus it’s entertaining to drive. Of course, the base engine feels a little anemic, but if you upgrade to the V6 or hybrid, the car transforms into a little beast.

Volvo S60

The 2018 S60 is an old-school Volvo, meaning it hasn’t gone through the makeover that’s sweeping the lineup.

That means it’s less expensive than the upcoming 2019 model will be, but we don’t know by how much, yet. To be honest, the interior feels a little cramped and has some cheap components. Handling is passable, and acceleration is strong, especially if you get the R-Design, which pushes the price way up. Waiting for the 2019 model to hit could be a wise move.

Lincoln MKZ

Like the S60, the Lincoln MKZ hasn’t gone under the knife for its transformation. That means you get an interior that feels a little on the cheap side, plus performance that doesn’t feel refined.


Going for the twin-turbo V6 engine pushes up the price quite a bit, but it amps up the fun factor just as much.
