2016 Luxury Car of the Year: Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class

To win in the luxury class, a car needs to be beautiful inside and out, with a presence that commands the prime parking-lot spot. The CLS-Class has all that covered and then some. Its coupelike sedan set a standard that other luxury makes were quick to copy, but the CLS-Class wears it best. Inside, the subtle LED lights highlight trim pieces in such a way that you could be fooled into thinking you're in a top-flight nightclub. That is, until you start driving, and that's where the CLS' power gets your attention. But, of course, if you're the sort for whom "Enough" just isn't enough, there's the high-performance AMG version with a 577-horsepower V-8. Whichever version you choose, you'll be getting a big, beautiful machine that'll devour any road you point it at and leave you feeling like a million bucks.
