Which are the best-looking four-door sedans on the market?

After some debate we've decided that these are the ones that deserve to be on our checklist.

In alphabetical order.

ASTON MARTIN RAPIDE

It may be just a stretched coupe with extra doors, but the Rapide is even sexier than the sports models on which it is based. Its 2013 facelift makes it even better looking.

JAGUAR XJ

After 50 years of sticking to its fluted-front early 60s-style, Jaguar finally broke free, immediately slicing a decade from its buyer demographic with the stunning new XJ.

KIA OPTIMA


So well thought of was the design team that created this disarmingly attractive and eminently affordable four-door, that its chief, Peter Schreyer, is now Kia’s president.

MASERATI QUATTROPORTE

We didn’t include the new 2013 Quattroporte, because we don't think it's as pretty as the model it replaces, which remains an achingly beautiful machine of great character.

TESLA S

Without the paraphernalia of a large conventional power unit to accommodate, the Tesla S couldn’t really help but become the United States' best-looking sedan to date.
