Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Best luxury sedan: Mercedes-Benz S-Class
Not only is the recently redesigned S-Class the best luxury sedan you can buy, one could certainly argue it's the best car in the world.

Though the Audi A8 and BMW 7 Series are superb cars, they very much look and feel like fancier versions of lesser siblings. The new S-Class, on the other hand, not only enjoys clear differentiation between it and the E-Class, but sets itself apart from those flagship sedan competitors as well.

Nowhere is this more evident than in the cabin, which is closer to a Bentley Flying Spur in design and quality than it is to any other Mercedes. The design is supremely elegant, the materials exquisite and the feature content truly staggering. The seats alone are heated, cooled, adjust in seemingly countless ways and offer six massage choices.

To drive the S-Class is a treat. Sure, the A8, 7 Series, Jaguar XJ and Porsche Panamera may present sportier driving experiences, but we bet more people will appreciate the way the S-Class so effortlessly and confidently dispenses with miles of freeway. As if its adjustable air suspension wasn't enough, the new Magic Ride Control actually scans the road ahead and alters the suspension to anticipate poor pavement. It works and it's astonishing. Plus, the S-Class is hardly a land yacht. It will still tackle corners with surprising skill and feedback.

Really, the only way the S-Class could be better would be with the powertrain variety offered by the previous model. Thankfully, the S63 AMG, S500 Plug-In Hybrid and hopefully a diesel Bluetec are on the horizon.
