What alternatives should I consider to a used Mercedes CLS coupe?

The Audi A7 Sportback is brimming with all the latest technology to please the smartphone-wielding generation. It may even appeal to the engineering set, because you can get some versions of the A7 with four-wheel steering to make it more nimble in town and improve the feeling of stability at speed. 

The BMW 6 Series Gran Coupé, meanwhile, mixes it with the best in the five-door coupé market as an extremely well made and refined grand tourer with room for four adults.
