The giant trunk is one of the roomiest in the large sedan class
Available all-wheel drive for enhanced wet-weather traction

Skimpy list of standard features on base SE model
Performance SHO model lacks the punch of big-engine rivals
Feels slow and ponderous when driving around turns
The interior doesn't seem as airy or spacious as it should

PROS
Exquisite cabin that sets new standards for design and comfort
Available semiautonomous driver assistance technology
Vast array of personalization options
Desirable high-horsepower AMG models are back

Standard suspension can feel stiff over rough surfaces
Sedan's cargo capacity is small for the class
