The Mercedes S-Class is packed to the rafters with technology, and is also a very comfortable and exceedingly well-appointed luxury saloon. The Audi A8 is more refined, particularly if you're looking for a diesel, but we’d opt for the S580e anyhow. It’s one of the most impressive plug-in hybrids on sale, combining many of the best points of the standard S-Class with a substantial real-world electric range and low company car tax. On top of all of that, the S-Class’s interior simply can’t be beaten for sheer wow factor.

This range-topping model has been created to go up against rivals such as the Rolls-Royce Ghost and Range Rover SVAutobiography LWB and therefore comes packed with kit. In addition to what you already get on the AMG Line Premium Plus Executive S-Class the Maybach benefits from 20in forged wheels (21s come as standard on Maybach First Class models), electric rear doors, a garage door opener, a chrome grill, rear-wheel steering and an active body control system.

This range-topping model has been created to go up against rivals such as the Rolls-Royce Ghost and Range Rover SVAutobiography LWB. It benefits from a turbocharged 4.0-litre V8 petrol engine that puts out a healthy 496bhp, powering the car from 0-62mph in a respectable 4.8 seconds. If that’s not quick enough for you, you might want to consider the range-topping S680 with its 603bhp V12 engine.
