Lying back in the leather seats as either a passenger or driver does justice to a true Epicurean. It is not just the automatic individual seat adjustment that insures your back comfort and guaranteed countryside viewing from an elevated height that you enjoy, but the temperature control of each individual seat itself. While an Epicurean we know is one with refine tastes. Transportation is necessary whether it is by plane, train, cruise or automobile. He or she is not planning on a lot of walking to the destination. Thus one of the best ways to get there is by luxury car. But not just any car will do. As in wines we checked both foreign and domestic. Hands down the foreign vehicle was the Range Rover Sport HSE with its premium leather seats and high above the ocean floor seating. Its ability to master rugged out door terrain set it apart from all other makes and models of SUV's. However, for creature comfort the 2009 Lincoln MKX AWD is the Epicurean domestic choice. The main criteria being the ability to fit four cases of wine in the back without fear of spillage or sprained back. Epicureans are known for avoiding back breaking work at all cost.
