I'm assuming that you are talking about brand new 2020 vehicles? This article has Audi winning the competition between the 2 brands: https://cars.usnews.com/cars-trucks/audi-vs-lexus However, I have my own take on this. My answer is based on a United States perspective, from a current Audi owner, and depends on the following factors: 1. Long Term Reliability (are you keeping the car beyond the warranty period?) 2. Aesthetics/Style - totally subjective, only you know what you like 3. Performance and Handling - some people just like to go fast and want responsive handling. 4. Budget - How much extra cash do you have? I would have also added a preference between a manual or automatic transmission, but as of 2020, neither brand offers a manual transmission option. Long Term Reliability Lexus is your best bet here. I own a 2015 Audi S4, which has surprisingly been reliable, but I'm not kidding myself. If I choose to keep this car a few more years, at some point, I'll need to change the timing chain, and it's going to cost me thousands. No comparable Lexus (GS-F, IS 350, RC-F) is going to cost that much to replace a timing belt. Japanese manufacturers design their cars with the assumption that the belt is a maintenance item that needs to be easily accessed for replacement. The Germans, on the other hand, require that the entire engine be dropped in order for the timing chain to be replaced. But, I digress. Lexus wins here. Aesthetics / Styling This is subjective, as everyone has their own tastes. For more details on this, please see the link I included earlier. On the Lexus side we have these 11 models: 1. 2020 RC F - Sports Coupe 2. 2020 UX - Hybrid SUV 3. 2020 RX - Small. SUV 4. 2020 LCF - Sports Coupe 5. 2020 ES - Sedan 6. 2020 LS - Sedan 7. 2020 NX - Performance SUV 8. 2020 IS - Sports Sedan 9. 2020 GX - Mid size SUV 10. 2020 LX - Large SUV 11. 2020 GS - Large Sedan On the Audi side, we have these 13 models, including 3 with no Lexus equivalent. If you want one of first 3 models, you can stop reading now. Audi is your only option. 1. 2020 R8 - Supercar. (no Lexus super car equivalent, the closest is probably the LFA and they don’t make those anymore. The LC is not a super car). 2. 2020 e-tron GT Electric SUV. (no Lexus equivalent. the UX 300E is not in the US market…yet). 3. 2020 TT - Sports Coupe. (no real Lexus equivalent) 4. 2020 RS3/S3/A3 - Small Sedan 5. 2020 S4/A4 - Midsize Sedan 6. 2020 RS5/S5/A5 - Midsize Coupe 7. 2020 RS6/S6/A6 - Sedan 8. 2020 RS7/S7/A7 - Sportback Sedan 9. 2020 A8 Horch/A8 - Large Sedan 10. 2020 SQ5/Q5 - Midsize SUV 11. 2020 RS Q8 - Performance SUV 12. 2020 Q7 - Large SUV 13. 2020 Q2 - Small SUV Both manufacturers have designed beautiful cars with great exteriors and interiors. Because styling is subjective (outside of the 3 Audis without a corresponding Lexus model that I mentioned), I call this one a tie. Performance / Handling With great all wheel handling of their sedans like the R8, S3, S4, RS5, S5, and even the car-like handling of their SUVs like the SQ5, the Germans take this category. In fact, this category is one that Audis have been recognized for over the past few decades. If you want all wheel drive and superb handling characteristics, Lexus just doesn’t measure up here. Let’s be honest, the Lexus brand is known for comfort and reliability quality first. Performance is NOT the first thing that comes to mind when you say Lexus. However, there are some exceptions. The LC500, RC-F and GS-F models have powerful engines, and can match the horsepower of some of the Audi models. But they can't match the handling. I drive an Audi S4 and I can attest that the Germans win this one. Budget Audis are expensive. Expensive to purchase, expensive to insure, and expensive to maintain. You pay a big price to have the 4 rings and there is no getting around that. Buying a Lexus is not cheap by any means either, but the maintenance costs are much less that those of an Audi. If this is a strict budget to budget comparison that includes budgeting for initial cost, insurance and maintenance (beyond the manufacturer’s warranty), Lexus wins this one. Final Verdict As much as it pains me to say this as an Audi owner, if you are planning on keeping your car more than 5 years and you care about your budget, I would have to say Lexus is your best bet. If you have money to burn and performance is a priority for you then go for the Audi.
I will frame it that way: the current system is already excellent - the new one will make it even greater. You see, even the current Supercharger V2 system is already pretty fast. It can charge at 120 kW and add to the current market leader Tesla Model 3 Long Range (with a 325 miles rated range) a charge of 5% - 55% in about 25 minutes. Well, the new V3 Supercharger will cut this time to about 15 minutes, so whether this difference is a game-changer for you is (once again) up to you. What was unveiled is even greater: the current V2 Superchargers will get the whole 145 kW unlocked (instead of 120 kW) if only 1 car is charging at a time and the whole fleet will get an over the air update to use it - as long as the battery can take it. Tesla will gradually upgrade the whole current Supercharging infrastructure, so at the end of the upgrade there will be no more Supercharger power-split between two cars which occasionally added some charging time. These two cars normally didn’t have the same state of charge and this really wasn’t a serious problem, only an annoyance once a charging station was occasionally really overcrowded. Well, technically a competing CCS 2.0 standard is able to provide up to 350 kW, but for this to be usable the car must support the 800 Volt system. Only 2 proposed cars will do it, Porsche Taycan and Audi e-Tron GT and almost certainly we won’t see them on the roads in 2019, more likely this will happen in 2020 - and those two are two expensive sports cars where most of Tesla Model 3 are sold at about half the price. Tesla will sell most of their cars at a $35k - $55k range (and some 250k cars merely in 2019), the other two will have a price at or above $100k - and they will be lucky if they will be able to sell 10k each of them in 2020. The remaining CCS cars will be able to charge at up to 175 kW and yes, the Audi e-Tron SUV can charge at 150 kW, which is really good. The problem is, it is a big SUV with a big consumption, on par with the Jaguar i-Pace, but higher than the Tesla Model X, significantly higher than the Model S and almost horribly higher than the Model 3. Yes, a few CCS 2.0 rapid-chargers are already built (in Europe and USA) but as said, no current car can utilise the full 350 kW and only one car can utilise the 175 kW fairly good. With a software upgrade Tesla will even out this slight technical advantage for the whole fleet on all existing chargers while the new Superchargers will pretty match out even the 350 kW CCS 2.0 charger. The differences will come down to technical limitations what each batteries can take - and will come to the difference in charging times of merely a few minutes. Tesla shows - once you look at the whole picture, it is still well ahead of the competition.
What do these four cars have in common? They are all city cars, with no adequate charging infrastructure to speak of AT ALL. See that image of the Taycan? Guess what, that’s the only charger it will ever know, because there is literally no where else to charge it. It has a range of 311 miles on a ~90kWh battery. That means anywhere that it goes can’t be more than 150 miles away from that charger. Oh, I can charge at all the convenient charge points, right? They have Level 2 charging! Wrong. It will take 12 hours to fully charge a 90kWh battery (probably longer), and most of these charging stations are at Drug and Grocery stores for the convenience of the Leafs and other ~30kWh cars. Seriously, there is almost no point to putting a 90kWh battery in a car without a DC fast-charging network. But Tesla gives you this: Beautiful, isn’t it? This can charge a 90kWh in just over an hour, or to 80% in 30 minutes. What you are seeing is the added value of a charging infrastructure that allows the car to be a car, not a toy or a basic local transportation vehicle. This: is a real car. This: Looks like a real car, goes like a real car, but if you try to go on a road trip, prepare to spend 12 hours shopping!
Ok ok my turn, you may think that it’s impossible but I have discovered a few more details than most 1. Their Cars At first glance, you might think these cars may just seem like normal cars and not think anything of them. However if you think about it it would make sense for the cars to be a little bit more futuristic. Both cars Displayed in Endgame are Audi e-tron GT 2019 concept cars. Now for five years in the future this doesn’t actually seem too advanced but it is still cool. 2. Hulk flavored Ice Cream If you don’t remember, in Avengers: Infinity War Tony Stark mentions two new Ben and Jerry’s Ice cream flavors: Hulk and Iron Man In Endgame there Is one little clip that is a nod to the Hulk flavored Ice Cream. (Who ever took this should be ashamed D:<) You can’t be 100% certain about the flavor, but I would wager that it is. 3. ‘Nuff Said & 420 This one was a little bit easier to spot, but some may not have caught this: They really went above and beyond for Stan Lee’s hippie persona, ‘Nuff Said 4. Black Hole This one is almost definitely a reach but it’s still something cool that I noticed. This is the part when Black Widow and Hawkeye travel to Vormir to get the soul stone, if you look past those clouds what do you see…? I saw a Black Hole My friend saw an eclipse Either way it’s a neat little detail. I love how they added all these neat details into Endgame, they really gave it their all. Excelsior!
Top Gear's top 10: luxury cars We put our sensible hats on to bring you the 10 best luxury cars out there 1.Jaguar XJ Jaguar’s futuristic range-topping saloon remains a striking car, even three years after launch. For 2014 it was tweaked, with subtly honed suspension settings, better sat nav, a standard eight-speed auto with stop-start plus big improvements in diesel efficiency. Now it’s been facelifted again, with revised engines and interior tech, full-LED headlights and more distinctive ‘J-blade’ daytime running lights. The XJR is still around, with its 550bhp supercharged 5.0-litre V8 and Merc-AMG-like attitude. But now there’s a R-Sport model for those who want the looks but not the fuel bills. There’s a new top-of-the-line Autobiography trim too, for those who like to spend no less than six figures. 9.Porsche Panamera The all-new, second-generation Porsche Panamera. Yep, really. All of its parts are new, even if it does just look like a facelift. Albeit a very successful one: the Panamera has finally grown into its skin, and wears its 911 styling cues better than ever. You may disagree, but we think it looks pretty darn good. 8.Bentley Bentayga £133,100 – £196,590 It’s what happens with the might of the VW Group megazords together to combine all its tech and toys in one ultimate SUV. The Bentley Bentayga is the Crewe marque’s first SUV, and if you we’re being cynical, you’d immediately point out that underneath, this car shares some of its roots with the likes of the Porsche Cayenne, the Audi Q7, the Lamborghini Urus, and indeed the VW Touareg. But being a Bentley, it has to be faster than the Porsche, more luxurious than the Audi, more refined than the VW and better off-road than the Lambo. Excess all areas. And you know what? Bentley has succeeded. We can debate the morality of two-tonne-plus SUVs versus their popularity forever, but there’s no doubt that the Bentayga is a tour de force. It’s been around since, so there have been several models of Bentayga so far. The original was the standard W12, powered by a 6.0-litre bi-turbo engine good for 605bhp. That’s now been superseded by the Bentayga Speed, which uses a redeveloped version of the same engine to achieve 626bhp. Too profligate? If you were quick ,you could have got hold of the first and only diesel Bentley ever made: the Bentayga diesel, which used Audi’s 430bhp electro-turbo V8 derv. A magnificently rangey and torque-rich experience, the tide-turn against diesel saw the model killed off in Europe, effectively replaced by a V6 petrol a plug-in hybrid model instead, bolstering the Bentayga’s eco ranks. Sort of. There’s also a V8 petrol model, which is probably the sweet spot of the range, as it is with most Bentleys, truth be told. All Bentaygas are of course four-wheel drive, all weigh north of two tonnes, and all of them seat five people. Apart from the ones optioned like a private jet to seat four instead. Prices? From £130,000, if you avoid the options. As if you would… 7.Rolls-Royce Wraith £251,240 – £288,410 The Wraith is billed as “the most powerful and dynamic Rolls-Royce in history”. The first bit is easily dealt with: a turbocharged 6.6-litre V12 sends 624bhp to the rear wheels, ten per cent more power than you’ll find even in the new Phantom and Cullinan. As for the most dynamic? Well, you’d argue that’s not difficult, given Rolls has long mastered the art of hefty, comfy cars that are designed to soothe not scintillate. But the Wraith is based upon the Ghost limo, so it’s hardly got a sporting chassis at its core, though its rear axle has been widened and its wheelbase shortened. “The car’s suspension has also been tuned to minimise body roll and discreetly amplify feedback when cornering,” says Rolls, “while steering weight is heavier at high speeds and lighter at low speeds adding to the spirited drive.” Achieving those high speeds ought to be a doddle; with two turbos, the Wraith has a ginormous 590lb ft of torque available from 1,500rpm, enough to shift its 2.4 tonnes to 60mph in 4.4secs. Quicker than hot hatches with not dissimilar power-to-weight ratios, and quite startling to experience in something with lambs’ wool floor mats. Indeed, it may be the most sporting Rolls ever, but it’s still dripping in luxury. There are four finely proportioned seats, sumptuous materials across most surfaces and head- and leg-room aplenty, even in the rear. Don’t worry, the front seats electrically whirr forward to allow anyone climbing into the back some extra grace. Its £250,000 starting price really is just the start, too. Few Rolls-Royces leave the Goodwood factory without first having been made fully bespoke to their buyer’s needs; colour-matched inside and out, fibre-optic star headlining fitted, the full works. Half the fun of having a Rolls-Royce isn’t driving it (or being driven in it), but the buying process itself. The Wraith is now one of the oldest Rolls-Royces on sale, having arrived in 2013. The Ghost it’s spun from landed in 2010, and its drop-top sibling – the Dawn – started production in 2015. While the new-generation Phantom is sold only as a saloon, the Wraith is the car of choice if you want your Rolls-Royce to take the form of a two-door coupe. 6.BMW 7 Series Well, it used to be the ultimate BMW. A 7 Series was the undisputed flagship. But is that the case any more? Especially now that the X7 exists – a luxury limo in the (ghastly) shape of a seven-seat SUV. There’s the new 8 Series too, which will spawn a four-door saloon version – with an M badge. Certainly, there are other BMWs vying for the title of boss of the family. Meanwhile, BMW’s been listening to what its customers wanted from the 7 to beat the likes of the Mercedes S-Class (traditionally the class-defining leader in the limo set) and the Audi A8. And, what they came up with was a triple-threat approach. “Make it more imposing, make it look more different to a 3 and 5 Series, and give us more novelty features,” said the customers. Well, we can probably tick off tasks 1 & 2. The new 7 Series is a mildly terrifying looking object, thanks mostly to slimmer laser headlights framing a grille that’s 40 per cent bigger than the last version. No kidding. The whole bonnet is 50mm higher to squeeze in the mega grille, all in the name of giving the car more road presence. Lower down, the bumper now has cleaner, slipperier aero, diverting draughts into the front wheelarches and back out again by newly vertical ‘air breather’ vents, which reduce drag. Boy is it bluff to look at. A BMW caricature. In a hall of mirrors. Round the back, the LED lights are now more angular and their lighting elements animate and ‘scroll’ across the car. Apparently the boss of BMW Korea hugged the designers when they demonstrated this, so grateful was he that this gimmick – sorry, novelty – had been built in. Oh, and there’s a full-width light bar at the back, like every other German car these days. Are you not convinced? Are you wretching over your screen? Well frankly, unless you’re in China, BMW doesn’t give a monkey’s. In China, the 7 Series has a 40 per cent market share, and the big grilles and XXL chrome is bang-on for Asian tastes. BMW says it’s also had bags of positive feedback about how the car looks from American and European customers. They seem to be quite difficult to track down, though… Inside, the 7 has been gifted a new centre console layout with flush glossy buttons from the 8 Series, and the new digital dials from right across the BMW range. The highlight is the bodyshell. BMW made use of techniques and production methods devised for the i3 and i8 to trim 40kg from the 7’s chassis, which incorporates bits of carbon fibre (some as long as a normal-sized bloke is tall) for added stiffness, strength and lightness. All told, the new 7 is some 130kg lighter than the old car. A net 200 if you factor in all the added kit, which weighs 70kg by itself. Powertrain wise, the biggest improvements come in the 740Le plug-in hybrid, which can now go up to 36 miles on a charge, thanks to a 40 per cent increase in battery capacity. There’s also an entirely new, and utterly glorious V8, in the 750i, which is great news for American customers but of little note in Britain, where it’ll incur more tax than a cross-channel ferry. The M760Li V12 lives on, albeit dropping below 600bhp because of pesky new particulate filters strangling the power a touch. We doubt you’ll notice. 5.Audi A8 £70,785 – £104,590 A big, important barge of a thing relatively few will buy, and a technical achievement few have the resources or engineering might to match or surpass. It’s the new Audi A8 – the cleverest Audi of all. And so it should be, because if you really want to see what a manufacturer is truly capable of engineering, you look at its flagship. And the A8 is and always had been Audi’s, which is why the new one gets a load of tech’ we haven’t seen before, but almost certainly will on future A6s and A4s. Tech’ like ‘Traffic Jam Pilot’, which delivers “conditional level three autonomy” by taking complete control of the steering, brakes and accelerator on motorways and dual-carriageways. Or the new infotainment system, which pairs Audi’s ‘Virtual Cockpit’ instrument cluster with two touchscreens for a largely button-free centre-console. Much of said tech’ can only exist for the 48-volt, water-cooled electrical system that technically makes the A8 an ‘MHEV’, or ‘mild-hybrid electric vehicle’. This all takes some explaining, so more later. More too on the interior, which because the new A8 is bigger than the car it replaces – longer by 32mm and taller by 13 in either short- or long-wheelbase (which adds another 13cm of rear legroom) – is suitably spacious. The car’s heavier too; for all the aluminium, CFRP and magnesium Audi promises it’s used in the more rigid ‘Space Frame’ chassis, it’s almost 100kg up on the old car and lardier than either of its main competitors, the (relatively) featherweight carbon-cored BMW 7 Series and Mercedes S-Class. So in the short-term anyway, it’s not massively quick. For starters Brits get a 3.0-litre V6 in either petrol or diesel. An ‘e-tron’ plug-in hybrid (with wireless charging) will follow along with a W12 and 4.0-litre diesel V8. And the one you want is… 4.Bentley Continental GT There’s a key point in Bentley’s timeline that we can call BC: Before Continental. So vital was the first Conti GT – not only for sales, but setting a template and tone for the whole brand – that you could easily argue that were it not for the two-door coupe Bentley might very well not be with us today. The most successful luxury car of modern times? Quite probably. And now it’s into its second generation. It must sell well, and it must still be the focal point for the whole brand, to embody what a Bentley is while the Bentayga SUV makes the big bucks elsewhere in the range. It’s a handsome thing, the new Conti GT, at least in profile, where the front wheels have been shifted forward to improve the weight distribution and drop the engine lower and further back in the chassis. In fact 55 per cent of the weight still sits on those front wheels, but there’s less of it than before – the body alone is 80kg lighter, helping the new Conti GT weigh ‘only’ 2,244kg. But Bentley has made no secret of the fact that a heavy kerb weight actually helps deliver the road-crushing stability and momentum that characterises the way its cars drive. They’re knowingly hefty things. Powerful 48v electrics from the Bentayga are used – among other things – to manage the suspension, with actuators on front and rear anti-roll bars combating body roll. The set 40:60 power split is now fully variable and actually sends 100 per cent of torque to the rear wheels as often as possible to the benefit of fuel efficiency and emissions. There are two engines to choose from. Cheapest is the V8, a 4.0-litre twin turbo offering up 550bhp, a 4.0sec 0-62mph time and 198mph top speed. Another eleven grand upgrades you to the big-boy 6.0-litre W12 engine. Basically two V6s on a common crank, it’s carried over from the old Conti albeit modified enough for Bentley to declare it the ‘most advanced 12-cylinder engine in the world’. It features cylinder shut off under light loads, while also producing 626bhp and a thumping 664lb ft of torque from a mere 1,350rpm, maintaining that through to 4,500rpm. Performance is better: 0-62mph takes 3.7sec and its top speed is 207mph. Both versions powering all four wheels through an eight-speed gearbox and, should be feel like behaving uncouthly, via a launch control system. Standard specification includes full Matrix LED lights, a 12.3in central touchscreen, wifi, head-up display, night vision, a 650w stereo and 21in wheels. Pricing starts at around £150,000, putting this in direct competition with the likes of the Aston Martin DB11, Mercedes S63 Coupe and Ferrari Portofino. But you won’t be spending that. You’ll be spending much more, getting the stitching to match your shoes, the wood to match the office in your third home, and so on. This is a car made for the bespoke treatment. 3.Rolls-Royce Phantom Since the first Phantom appeared in 1925, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has had its ups and downs. When the outgoing Phantom appeared at the stroke of midnight on January 1st 2003, the company even called it ‘the last great automotive adventure’. Maybe that should have been penultimate, because we’ve just driven the new car, and as internal combustion most likely won’t be around in another 14 years’ time, this really could be The One. Rolls-Royce reckons the Phantom is the barometer by which everyone else in the world of expensive luxury goods measures themselves, so the bar isn’t just raised here, it’s bejewelled and platinum-plated. You know when someone claims to be ‘the Rolls-Royce of watches/furniture/granite-kitchen-worktops’? Well, this is the Rolls-Royce of Rolls-Royces. Rolls says the Phantom’s new spaceframe structure is 30 per cent more rigid than the previous model, a figure that rises significantly in key areas such as suspension and gearbox. This new structure, coincidentally, offers sufficient flexibility to underpin the next wave of Rolls product, its SUV included. The chassis gets an all-new suspension setup, with a double wishbone configuration on the front, a five-link axle at the rear, adaptive dampers, and active anti-roll bars. It’s also the latest car to benefit from four-wheel steering, whose three degrees of counter-steer help shrink the car’s heft at higher speeds, as well as improving low-speed agility. The Phant’s air springs feature bigger chambers than on any previous Rolls, and the tyres are specially developed Continentals whose structure incorporates 2kg of sound absorbent material. There’s 6mm-thick, dual-layer double glazing windows all-round. The body-in-white features the largest-ever cast aluminium joints to enhance sound insulation, and overall the Phantom carries more than 130kg of sound-deadening material. There’s double skin alloy within the floor and on the front bulkhead, into which a foam and felt layer is squeezed. There’s more insulating material in the headliner, doors, and boot cavity. All of this contributes to the car’s 2,560kg kerbweight (2,610kg if you go for the long ’un, which adds 220mm to the wheelbase), but that’s surely an irelevance. As well as monitoring body and wheel acceleration and steering inputs, a stereo camera mounted in the windscreen reads the road ahead to effectively erase surface unpleasantness before it’s allowed to upset the occupants’ Dom Perignon. The new Phantom also features so many assistance systems that the heart of its electronic architecture is the single largest component produced by the BMW Group. 2.Range Rover £81,785 – £177,485 Arguably the definitive big, luxury SUV. Frequently imitated, but rarely bettered or even equalled, the Range Rover has been around since the early Seventies. And even though that means it’s only a couple years shy of its fiftieth birthday, the Rangie is still only in its fourth generation. Admittedly the fact the first-gen (later known as the ‘Classic’) lasted for more than two decades skews that figure a bit. But still… The current car was launched in 2012. It debuted a new aluminium monocoque that cost the company a billion quid or so to develop. So even though it’s bigger than the car it replaced, it’s lighter by in some cases almost half a tonne. That means it’s faster, tangibly better to drive and more efficient. And with the 2018 facelift comes even more efficiency, thanks to the introduction of the P400e plug-in hybrid, which pairs a 296bhp, four-cylinder petrol engine with a 114bhp electric motor for 64g/km of CO2, a claimed 101mpg and 31 miles of all-electric range. The P400e replaces the SDV6 Hybrid (a conventional, non-plug-in hybrid with the 3.0-litre V6 diesel and a small electric motor) in the line-up, but V6s and V8s in petrol and diesel (with up to 557bhp for the flagship, 5.0-litre supercharged V8 petrol) remain available. All are linked to an eight-speed automatic gearbox and all-wheel drive with the deeply clever ‘Terrain Response’ technology that gives the Rangie its peerless off-road ability. Nowadays the Rangie doesn’t just compete with other big SUVs, but conventional luxury saloons like the Mercedes S-Class, BMW 7 Series and Audi A8. It has to rival those cars – traditionally their makers’ technological flagships – on every level. Which is why the new car offers higher levels of luxury and cleverer tech than we’ve yet seen from JLR. For the facelift it’s added the dual-touchscreen infotainment setup as debuted in the Range Rover Velar, ‘Pixel’ headlamps with 144 LEDs and four laser diodes each for more than 500m of visibility and much besides. We’re promised a new seat design - adjustable up to 24 (!) ways - makes the Rangie “more comfortable than ever” in the front, and that the ‘Executive Class Seating’ option for rear-seat passengers gives “the impression of a luxurious wraparound lounge-like interior”. Exterior changes include a new grille and bumper, with larger vent blades. At the side the lower accents and vents have been reworked, while at the rear the updated bumper features integrated tailpipes across all derivatives. Long- and short-wheelbase options are available, with prices starting at £79,595 for the former and £112,900 for the latter, and rising to £177,030 for V8-engined examples of Rangies fettled by JLR’s Special Vehicle Operations division. 1.Mercedes-Benz S-Class Without a doubt the benchmark big luxury saloon, the one Audi, BMW, Lexus, Cadillac and even Jaguar and Maserati must define themselves by and be measured against. This car defines the sector and is the one all others must topple. The latest A8 and 7 Series are both much newer than the S and thus have some exceptionally clever tech on-board, but while both are excellent cars in their own right, neither is quite as special as the big Merc. A facelift in 2017 – this generation’s last before it’s replaced by an entirely new S-Class – gave many new things. Chief among them new engines, Merc’s latest-generation in-line six-cylinder diesels and petrols, plus a plug-in hybrid and the S63 AMG’s V8 bi-turbo petrol. The rare-groove S65 is no more, but you can still get a V12-engined S-Class in the form of the super-luxe, super-rare and super-expensive £180,000 Mercedes-Maybach S650. This update also gave the S-Class an array of semi-autonomous driving technology like Active Speed Limit Assist, Active Lane Change Assist and Remote Parking Assist, most of which debuted in the E-Class. But to make sure the S-Class kept its crown as the techiest Merc, it got a few of its own too. The main one is a kind of active cruise control that, as well as sensing and maintaining gaps to other cars, knows to slow you for roundabouts, corners and tolls using GPS. Of course that particular system has been rolled out to other Mercs now, but it’s reasonable to expect much cleverness from the new S-Class, which could be revealed as soon as this year. Because this particular era of S-Class is so near the end of its life, Mercedes has massively cut back on the number of trim levels/equipment combinations if offers. Now there’s just one trim for the non-AMGs – ‘Grand Edition’ – and only the cheapest S350d is available with the short-wheelbase.
