Compares Large Family Sedans

Find out which car comes out on top in this Cars.comparison.

A $38,000 Taurus? Now that's funny!

The LaCrosse would have been a better fit than the Maxima. Another fine choice would have been the Azera -- it just beat the Taurus and LaCrosse in a Consumer Reports comparison for its space, interior quality, and visibility.


Finally sombody who does real car comparisons not "omg this is a toyota is is automaticly #1 on the list cause its toyota.


Erik-- I AGREE
Although I personally Love the Azera to drive I could see it doing well here but not winning... Its just not as technologically advanced, It would prob be the quickest here though :P


the avalon needs a redisign if it wants to stay in te competition


Where's the IMPALA!! :-)


The Impala is at the rental car place where it belongs.


Would like to see this same comparo add 300/charger,azera and lacrosse. Avalon is a sweet ride but its time for a refresher. New Taurus and LaCrosse are both very promising. The Maxima is in a class all by itself. It won't ever be the best in this class but it is the best at what it does.Being a comfy and sporty roomy sedan.
