#10 Apparently, the new 7-series drives quite well too. In fact, it is comfortable enough to trouble the S-class.

I hate styled exhausts.

In fact you can see the real exhaust pipes if you look through them.

I tend to agree.

This 7 series seems - yet again - doomed to also ran status beside the S class, even considering all of the positive press I have read about it. Concerning style, it isn't that the exterior styling is conservative that is bad; it is that BMW made this look more like a refresh than a new generation.

The back seat looks like a nice place to be.

In this segment the S-Class rules supreme, the 7 Series being a distant second and Audi simply struggling with the A8.

Here badge and pedigree matter.

Understandably so. Also, the S Class is still best (without badge and tradition) at being what the rest of this class attempts to embody.

The XJ is a fun outsider pick. Key word: outsider.

It still does better than the A8, doesn't it?
