A new Mercedes-Benz S-Class is here, a momentous occasion certainly studied by rivals since the big Benz has set the stage for luxury sedans for decades.
The Audi A8 is a worthy choice loaded with tech and great road manners, even if its styling may be too subtle for some.
The Lexus LS isn’t shy about its looks, though its driving experience trends far more toward comfort than performance.
The Porsche Panamera goes in the opposite direction, prioritizing handling and acceleration ahead of interior space.
Don’t leave Jaguar’s dated but still desirable XJ off your list, either, especially considering its relative bargain price and the thrust of its engines.
