The Lexus LS isn't quite as lonely at the top of the mountain as it once was–many of its competitors have caught up in terms of style, status, and quality.
The Jaguar XJ remains one of the most handsome vehicles in the group, though its reliability still might not be on par with the LS.
The Infiniti Q70 runs a little smaller–though it now comes in an extended wheelbase version–and offers excellent driving dynamics.
The Audi A8 is a high-tech option with equally understated design.
The BMW 7-Series is the driver's car in the segment, and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is now unmatched in terms of luxury, technology, and variety of drivetrains–including the high-performance AMG versions.
