TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2022 Audi A8 is a model of refinement, comfort, and technology. The 2022 BMW 7-Series brims with brash front-end style, but we like it better for its elegant interior and its vivacious V-8s. The 2022 Mercedes-Benz S-Class remains the luxury benchmark, with the ride, comfort, power, and technology to prove it.
