Looked at the usual German, British & Japanese luxury brands, and just when I was about to buy a Lexus, decided to stop by a Volvo dealer. The S80 T6 seemed to have what I was looking for: understated luxury, solid build, strong engine, comfortable ride, nice stereo and a reasonable price. A great value.
Dynaudio stereo. Safety features. Quiet ride but still able to "feel" the road. Rear DVD entertainment package (my kids favorite). PCC - just walk up to the car, enter and drive off without juggling keys.
A power outlet in the same compartment where the aux jack is located. I use my mp3 player to listen to audiobooks and podcasts during my commute and don't like wires all over the place.
