I am sick of every sedan benchmarking sports cars. Benchmark a Rolls Royce.
Every time I read anything about a sedan, I am greeted by PR nonsense about how sporty the car is, or how well it handles....for a sedan....
For what seems like forever, sedans have migrated further and further to the sport side of the spectrum. Some quote crazy lap times, or cornering Gs or 0-60 sprint times. I get that there is a market for such a vehicle. A family that desires an all around car that not only fits all the things, but also is fun to drive. I'm not saying that as a whole the segment makes no sense, what I am claiming is that in the endless hunt for performance automakers might be missing a whole other segment.
Where did all the conformable cars go? Something focused on be an insulated and soft ride? A car that benchmarks a Rolls Royce, and does not take inspiration from a Ferrari race car.
Cadillac is no longer the gold standard of "land yachts" for the masses. I think they use the term "BMW Like" more in their press material then any specific GM details.
Lexus has been the staple of the unsporting car for a while now, but there are some worrying writing on the wall. There is an F Sport option on the LS.
I am not looking for this car to be cheap. If the market can support $80-100k sports sedans, why can it not support pure luxury at the same price point?
Am I alone?
