The previously optional Lexus Safety System Plus -- featuring forward-collision mitigation, lane-keep assistance, automatic high beams and adaptive cruise control -- is now standard. So is the Scout GPS app, which provides maps and turn-by-turn directions. Rain-sensing wipers are also now standard, and the Remote Touch infotainment interface gets a "Back" button.

2017 Nissan Maxima -- The Maxima is generous with space, but it leans toward the sportier end of the driving-experience spectrum.

2017 Kia Cadenza -- Redesigned for 2017, the Cadenza offers lots of standard equipment and passenger space, but it's not as sophisticated as a Lexus.
Used Lexus LS -- An LS with low miles can be yours for the price of a new ES. It will probably be a few years old, but the rear- or all-wheel-drive, V8-powered LS is swifter and even smoother than its smaller sibling.
