Three that are a little larger than mid-size, but they are quieter and smoother-riding than truly mid-size sedans:

Kia Cadenza (2014 only)

Chevrolet Impala (2014 only)

Chrysler 300 (2012 or newer, fairly efficient with V6 and 8-speed automatic)

You might also thoroughly test drive a 2011 or newer Hyundai Genesis to see if the ride feels good to you. The ride of this one varies by road type--very good on some, a little busy on others. Fuel efficiency is just okay.

Sometimes, you overlook the most obvious. Late model Camry's and Accords are really big inside and the Camry has a more comfortable ride than most other. The Altima gets incredable fuel economy and is still comfortable. If you want a big cruiser with fuel economy being less important, a 2-3 year old Avalon is very big and almost lexus inside while keeping in the budget.

The Accord isn't especially quiet, but I can also see the Camry and Altima working. My main concern with a 2013 or newer Altima would be transmission issues.

Also correct on the Avalon, but the previous generation, not the 2013+ shown in the photo, which has an overly firm ride.

Among full-size or 'near' full-size sedans, the Hyundai Azera is often overlooked. But in my experience, it's a lot of car for the money and feels like an entry-level luxury sedan on the road.

The Chevrolet Impala is also very impressive.

I would consider a Hyundai Genesis. This is a great "near luxury" car perfect for us "getting older" folks. The car has been re-engineered for 2015 and there are some great deals on new 2014's if you stretch your budget a bit. Used 2012-2014 are also great and come with Hyundai's excellent warranty. (2013 with less than 25Kmi for $19K)
