Top Recommended Luxury Vehicles

The concept of the luxury vehicle continues to evolve, especially with the advent of near-luxury models provided by any number of manufacturers. Mercedes offers both its CLA sedan and GLA crossover at just over $30K, while you can easily spend a similar amount – or more! – on Ford’s Fusion or Honda Accord. Regardless of the price point, today’s luxury is typically imbued with higher performance drivetrains, upscale appointments and the latest in technology and safety. And the luxury tag isn’t confined to cars; Cadillac’s Escalade can easily approach – or exceed - $100K, and Ford’s King Ranch F-Series will typically have a window sticker of over $70K.  

2016 Range Rover Sport

2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport

From the first product briefing in a Barcelona hotel, to the dusty end of a day of off- and on-road driving, Land Rover engineers and public relations staff gave me stacks of information about the new diesel-engined Range Rover Sport. How efficient the newly motivated SUV would be, how much it will cost buyers, facts about the technology that's gone into the new engine, notes on available feature content, and more. But, before I'd turned a wheel in the freshest Range Rover family member, the most intriguing bit was this: in blind pre-production testing, not a single participant had identified …

2016 CT6

2016 Cadillac CT6

Cadillac moved to New York, renamed its cars and crossovers, and made cutting-edge technology one of its pillars. It's fighting hard to attract new customers and kill its outdated reputation as an old-man car brand in the United States. Change happens slowly, and then sometimes, all at once. Enter the 2016 Cadillac CT6. This is Cadillac's range-topping sedan. It's almost as long as the Mercedes S-Class and BMW 7 Series, yet in some configurations, it's lighter than their smaller siblings, the E-Class and 5 Series. The CT6 is a rolling showcase of General Motors' latest and best technologies, with potential …

2017 XT5

2017 Cadillac XT5

Thousands of feet above the Pacific Ocean, the winding roads that lead to the summit of Palomar Mountain turn from undulating curves to tight, blind, hairpin bends. Most drivers along this route are looking for a chance to exploit the limits of their cars' handling as much as one can on public roads, while taking in the bucolic views and endless blue skies. Up here, taking the thrilling curves at high speed is best left for drivers of performance cars who have platinum health insurance, lest the possibility of rolling a vertical mile toward Hellhole Canyon Preserve (we are not …

2017 A4

2017 Audi A4

Never mind the impending bubble burst, it's technology's time and Audi couldn't be happier. The 2017 A4 is the latest attempt to prove beauty and brawn can't beat intelligence outright. And this is the company's best case in 20 years. For two decades, the A4 has been the backbone of Audi's lineup and key in its resurgence in the post-Unintended Acceleration days. This car has managed to build up a successful following by being an alternative to the more popular BMW 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class while being nearly as good, if not actually better, than the competition. Audi chose …
