Expert reviews: 

Although a lot of car shoppers are gravitating more toward crossovers these days, luxury sedans remain essential vehicles for many manufacturers.

Pros
All versions have precise handling
V-Sport engine offers outstanding acceleration

Cons
Overly firm ride quality on some versions
Rear-seat room is smaller than some competitors'
Touch-panel center console controls are distracting
Base engine lacks refinement

Still reasonably quick and sporty

Infotainment interface can frustrate
