    2. Lexus LS 460

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The 2010 Lexus LS 460 is a well-built premium luxury sedan at a comparatively low price, but with competition that reads like a Hall of Fame lineup card, you'll certainly have plenty of options to consider.

    4. BMW 5 Series

    What Edmunds.com says:

  5. Audi A8

    5. Audi A8

    What Edmunds.com says:
    Although it may lack the snob appeal of some of its fellow Germans, the 2009 Audi A8 gives up nothing when it comes to luxury, performance and craftsmanship.

  6. Audi A6

    6. Audi A6

    What Edmunds.com says:
    The understated yet luxurious 2010 Audi A6 is a solid all-around effort, particularly with the supercharged 3.0T power plant. It deserves consideration alongside its capable European and Japanese rivals.

    What Edmunds.com says:
    Stately, elegant and maybe a little stuffy, the 2009 Jaguar XJ is everything a proper British motorcar should be. With its combination of modern construction and traditional styling, the XJ covers ground with appropriate dignity and real sporting spirit.

    What Edmunds.com says:
    With its edgy styling, respectable performance and array of high-tech safety options, the 2010 Cadillac STS is a well-rounded luxury sedan. But although the Caddy's pricing is attractive compared to German rivals, the new Hyundai Genesis still takes top honors for value in this field.

  11. Cadillac DTS

    11. Cadillac DTS

    What Edmunds.com says:
    While Cadillac's full-size 2010 DTS luxury sedan has some good qualities, it's outclassed overall by European and Japanese competitors.
