If this was my choice there would be one.

Volvo V90 wagon. An Uber cool large luxury wagon that you have to special order to get (And might I add fly to Sweden recieved!) Volvo typically have the best seats. Prices are alunder $60k

If it must be a sedan the same car is available as the S90. Still cool but not Uber cool.

My 2nd choice would be the Volvo V90 Cross Country. A raised Version of the V90 - you should be able to find this on dealer lots.

If you wanted a SUV check out the Mazda CX-9. It's well under your budget and have the sportier drive than most

I would suggest you test drive a CERTIFIED 2014 E63 or E63S sedan. Mercedes has a fantastic warrantee for certified cars. AMG's depreciate rapidly and you can find E63's within your price range. As the owner of an E63S station wagon, I can attest that they are very comfortable for long drives and are a ball to drive. The ride is definately "European" and not "billowy" like some other carsbut that I find the car very comfortable in both in-town and on highway trips. The 2014+ models are AWD which also has advantages in winter or wet driving. I get 17-18 mpg in daily in-town driving (and I don't driveit easy)and 21 mpg on the highway (fully loaded).

Both great suggestions. My only concern with the V90, a stunning, comfortable car, is reliability. The related XC90 crossover has been glitchy.

If a repair or two a year isn't a big concern, then the 2016 and up Jaguar XF is also worth a look. Not quite as smooth and refined as competing German luxury cars, but more involving.

Take a look at the 'forgotten' Lexus, the GS350. It's the best looking vehicle in the Lexus lineup (both my personal opinion and a fact), it's wonderful to drive (0-60 in 5.7sec, 306hp V6) and it's a Lexus (bulletproof reliablility). Why they don't sell more of these has always been a mystery to me.

My favorite German car in this size/class is the Audi A6. With the 3.0T (which is supercharged, despite the 'T' designation), it's good for 0-60 in 5.1sec and packs 333hp. The interior is a work of art and the material quality, assembly and fit/finish are second to none! The mechanically identical, but even more beautiful, A7 is also worthy of consideration as a CPO 2015-2016 model. Audi's CPO program provides warranty coverage for 6yrs or 100k miles from the vehicle's original in-service date.
