Somehow the Ford Taurus manages to be a rather large sedan with a tight and cramped interior. Poor packaging efficiency, led by a center console resembling the Great Wall of China and not much rear-seat room results in an interior that feels smaller than many midsized sedans. Small windows and thick pillars add to the claustrophobic feel, making it difficult for the driver to see out.

Thomas W., AZ (2015 Ford Taurus)

"The car seem to follow the road or highway it is such a pleasure to drive that a sixteen hour drive is possible without getting to tired especially when you have lane assist and adaptive cruise control. The car senses when you are not staying in the middle of the lane and tells you it is time for a coffee break or a break."

Harold T., AR (2015 Ford Taurus)

"This is by far the best car I've ever driven, from a performance standpoint. Acceleration is fabulous, the AWD makes handling very predictable, braking is top-notch. If you want a car that seriously drives, this is it."

Martin D., VA (2015 Ford Taurus)

"The heated and cooled seats and the seat seams to mold to your body so you are comfortable when driving. It is better than sitting in your recliner. The noise level is minimal and the ride is a little stiff with the twenty inch wheels but still not a rough ride even on so of the rough interstates."

Harold T., AR (2015 Ford Taurus)
