There used to be a time when the full-size sedan was a must-have for any automaker and a common sight on American roads. But thanks to the rise of the SUV, with extra cargo space and higher ride heights, big four-door sedans fell out of favor with families, and the segment has been shrinking rapidly since.
That said, there are still a few top full-size sedans left on the market at the affordable end of the price spectrum. (The cars covered here don’t include big-buck luxury models like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.) They all have big trunks, plenty of room in the cabin for five, and ample power. They’re not going to blow you away with their handling prowess, but that’s not the mission of the best big sedans.
The full-size sedan has always been geared toward getting family, friends, and business associates from point A to B in comfort and style.
