Shopping for a new car, want to hear your thoughts

So i need to change my '14 Elantra gt to a slightly bigger vehicle.
So far i checked pretty much all the mid and full size sedans. The options are now a:
'15 Azera - still 9 year warranty left, cheaper than the others, about the same power, outgoing model
'16 Charger sxt - fyi i never drove an american car. But this car has been in my sight for quite some time.
'15 Q50 - pricier, not so cool with the premium gas requirement, some say it doesn't drive as it looks (not so peppy nor reliable)
'14 Accord V6 - least sexy looking. Boring.

I would say i'm between the azera and the charger. I know how the Hyundai drives, i'm not familiar with Dodge.
The Charger is about $3000 more expensive, but has less miles on it and one year younger.
I hear all your opinions. I think you already know to what am i leaning to. I need more space, fun to drive but not burning gas like crazy, something that will run good for at least 5 years. Also ideas of other makes and models are much appreciated.

Thanks!

    My thoughts:

    Azera - if this is a used car, I'm not sure the 10 year warranty applies. Pretty much a luxury appliance.
    Charger - I had an R/T rental a couple months ago; I love the Hemi engine, but not sure I would love to put gas in it all the time. This is the V6, though, right? It's a big car, which may not work if you live and work in an urban environment.
    Q50 - which engine are you looking at? Premium fuel isn't a huge uplift in cost - maybe $5 or so per tank over RUG.
    Accord - yes, least exciting of the bunch (well, maybe on par with the Azera). But, probably the best cost of ownership numbers and you can run them forever.

    I suppose my advice is for you to drive them all and determine which of them has the right blend of driving dynamics and features.

    There are so many choices in the mid-size class. You might want to poke around the Edmunds website and see what else appeals to you.

    All of them are used with low miles on them. The Azera i like it for all the extra features that other cars don't have. But i can live without them. The Infiniti Q50 is a v6. Today i plan on driving the charger and the Azera.

    Hyundai does have a lot of features for the money.

    But, it's all about what you like, not about the deal.

    different stokes really. Azera is more of a luxury cruiser. Charger is big. Accord, probably IMO the best option for combining room, efficiency, performance, reliability, etc. And still drives well. But, as always, has to be what feels right to you.
