2020 Audi A8 vs. Its Competition

2020 Audi A8
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The luxury car sedan ranks have been pared in recent years, but that’s not a problem given how strong the choices remain.

In many ways the automotive industry’s flagship, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is available in a wide range of variants that pamper and perform exceptionally well.

The BMW 7-Series offers a more lithe driving experience and a well-wrought interior.

With its fine details, the Lexus LS is the most stylish choice, and it’s frugal in hybrid form.

The Lincoln Continental doesn’t have the powertrain or interior sophistication to truly do battle with Europe and Japan’s flagships, but don’t write it off just yet.

The Continental is a terrific value and has an arresting style.
