Although the production of Infiniti M37 is stopped, it is still one luxury sedan with loads of power that must be mentioned here. The 3.7-liter V6 under the hood produces 330 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque creates a mere 18 mpg city/26 mpg highway/21 mpg combined fuel economy.

17. Porsche Cayenne

Horsepower: 300 hp
MSRP Price: $48,200

We search around many car related magazines, blogs, and car related portals, we find no one mention about the Porsche Cayenne when they talk about cars with 300 horsepower, how come? The Porsche Cayenne may be slightly expensive compared to some other cars in the same range but it comes with many available options. With $48,200 price tag, the owners tend to enjoy a 300 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque for the base model. There is only one word to describe the performance and handling – superb! Even the Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid version gets a good power rated at 380 hp and 427 lb-ft of torque.

18. Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 Sedan

Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 Luxury offers tons of features and luxury option from A to Z. The cabin is very silent during a ride and the fuel economy is rated at 20 city/30 highway mpg. It may sound expensive to buy but hey, it is a Mercedes-Benz! For those who love the luxury look and interior design but require more power, the E-Class E63 AMG offers a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 cranking out 518 hp. WOW!

19. GMC Yukon Hybrid

Horsepower: 332 hp
MSRP Price: $52,470

The GMC Yukon is a hybrid but the 6.0-liter V8 cranks an output of 332 horsepower and 367 lb-ft of torque. EPA fuel economy is 20 city/23 highway/21 mpg combined. With a combined output of 379 hp, the towing capacity is nearly 6,000 pounds. That’s a decent tow capacity among its class. The only thing we don’t really like is the price tag. Will you prefer the GMC Yukon over the Mercedes-Benz E-Class we mentioned just now if tow capacity isn’t important for you?

20. Mercedes-Benz SLK350

The main selling point of this car is the head-turning outlook and impressive fuel economy which is rated at 20/28/23 mpg. The engine is built to match the stunning outlook. We say so because it takes only 4.9 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph.
