Key Full-Size Sedan Features

Engine Choices

For a sedan with plenty of power, there's the Dodge Charger. In 2019 models the base engine is a 3.6L V6, but look to higher trims for real power. The 2019 Charger SRT Hellcat has a 707-horsepower engine, selectable driving modes, and active damping suspension. Other models on this list have plenty of power, too—the 2017–2019 Audi A6 has a turbocharged 2.0L engine with 252 horsepower as standard or there's an available V6 with 340 horsepower.

Interior Details

If you prioritize comfort over power, consider the Hyundai Genesis. It has a smooth and stable ride, plus plenty of standard convenience features inside. The 2016 model has leather seats with 12-way power-adjustable front seats, a rearview camera, rain-sensing wipers, and much more. The 2018–2020 Chrysler 300 is just as luxurious with plenty of high-end features like an available premium sound system, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto connectivity as standard, and steering-wheel-mounted audio controls on all models.

Cargo Space

When you're after both space and style, the Nissan Maxima is a great choice. 2019 models have a sporty look that's backed up by a standard 300-horsepower V6. You'll get 14.3 cu ft of cargo space, which is plenty for road trip luggage or groceries. The 2017–2019 Toyota Avalon also has plenty of space with 16.09 cu ft of space in the trunk.


Looking for the latest tech? The 2018–2019 Cadillac XTS comes with a standard Bose® sound system, four USB ports, and available automatic parking assist. Check out the 2019 Ford Taurus, too—the top trims include a premium Sony® audio system, which will set the soundtrack to your next road trip. If you want maximum performance from your Taurus, the 2019 SHO model features standard all-wheel drive for additional grip on those mountain roads.

A full-size sedan is a great option if you want a nice mix of standard features and space. Whether you're a young professional, looking for a great family car, or just want to run your errands in style, you're bound to find the right car for you on this list.
