The "big benz" has been redefined over the decades, with the latest S-Class model offering a taste of luxury for drivers. Digital technology that matches a Tesla, plus a luxurious cabin helps make the S-Class one of the best bigger cars to drive. So sit back, relax and enjoy pure luxury with a super large infotainment screen, hybrid assistance and looks that could kill. Mercedes has done a great job creating a contemporary vehicle built for luxury.
Bentley Flying Spur
Sometimes you need to pay the cost for luxury, and that's certainly the case with the Bentley Flying Spur. Nothing catches the sense of occasion quite like this car with its seriously stylish interior, excellent performance and incredibly comfortable interiors. The downside? You'll need about £150,000 to get the keys to this luxurious beaut. Still, there are more expensive cars out there, believe it or not.
The A8 is Audi's flagship luxury car. There's excellent build quality everywhere you look, from the lovely soft-touch plastics to the chrome accents and swathes of leather. It also helps that this ride is very quiet, so you can enjoy peaceful cruises in pure comfort without hearing the engine revving away. The seats in the back are just as comfy as the ones in the front, too. That means a luxury ride all around, whether you're the driver or a passenger. The A8 knows how to keep things classy for everyone in the car.
The Jaguar XJ is a futuristic-looking saloon with great suspension and seamless sat-nav, eight-speed auto and engine efficiency. Once inside, the luxurious life kicks in for drivers with interior tech and seats you can sink into. One way to think of this car is as a big limo with 550bhp, a supercharged 5.0-litre V8 and full-LED headlights.
BMW 7 Series
The 7 Series has been going strong since the 1970s, bringing luxury to BMW drivers for decades. As far as the luxury saloon market goes, the 7 Series is right up there with the best of them thanks to its adaptive air suspension, game-changing infotainment system, and plush interior trim that creates a sense of space in the car. A quiet engine helps add to the luxuriousness of the ride.
Not all luxury cars cost an arm and a leg, and the Volvo S90 definitely falls into the more affordable range. This Swedish saloon is nice and spacious, with a snazzy interior that looks like it should be in a high-end car. The passenger space is one of the best on the market, while even the kit included with the standard model is generous by typical entry-level standards. The only drawback is the relatively small boot. But if you're not planning on packing the trunk with goods, then the S90 is the affordable luxury drive you've been looking for.
Is it possible to match a sporty ride with pure comfort and style? Yes, yes it is, and it's called the Porsche Panamera. Think 911 with four doors, and you're not far off. On the outside, this car looks like a beast, effortlessly blending sporty looks within a sedan body. Once you get inside, it's all about luxury, thanks to the comfy seats that allow you to store the position, an infotainment system and touch-sensitive controls on the dashboard. The Panamera is a hugely impressive car, especially when you hear the engine rev for the first time.
