From the cars I have seen personally,

Accord has awesome presence. So does the A4. Man, that thing almost got me into an accident, looking at it instead of the road ahead.

If you ask me then there are many stylish and impressive cars that make a good road presence. In India, we have the Bentley Continental, Audi R8, Lamborghini Murcielago, Bentley Azure, and Audi TT. Even the Mercedes-Benz cars are sure show-stopper on Indian roads.
