The Audi A8 has grown to be a real contender in the world of highly-desirable full-size luxury sedans.
Among these, the Lexus LS is the least engaging.
However, it's exceptionally comfortable, comes with built-in reliability as a consideration, and offers short- and long-wheelbases, as well as a variety of drivetrains.
The Jaguar XJ is one of the most handsome in the bunch, and its interior is a step above most vehicles in the class.
We're fond of the supercharged V-8, too.
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the real stunner in the class–with an endless list of options, comfort features, and self-driving aides.
It's available in rear- or all-wheel drive, a variety of powerful engines, and even stretches into the realms of Bentley and Rolls-Royce competitors.
Then, there's the BMW 7-Series, which can be had in nearly as many flavors, and is the driver's car in the bunch.
