The BMW 7-Series goes head-to-head with the Audi A8 and Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but each of these vehicles has a different personality.
The all-new S-Class leads the segment in luxury and technology now more than ever.
The Audi A8 is a swift, stable performer, though it has begun to look increasingly anonymous as years pass.
The Porsche Panamera is slightly smaller than the BMW, but it's significantly faster, especially in Turbo S guise.
Perhaps the most attractive vehicle in the segment is the Jaguar XJ, though its a little less functional inside than the 7er.
Finally the Aston Martin Rapide carries cachet in a way that's hard to compete with, despite its compromised rear seat.
