Every 2023 Full-Size Luxury Car Ranked from Best to Worst
Unlike its non-luxury counterpart, the full-size luxury car segment is filled to the brim with options. It makes sense; these stately vehicles come with driver-assistance technology and a large array of safety features that warrant the higher prices. These are the preeminent options when it comes to passenger cars, and they are a truly flashy way to show off your status.
We rank 7 full-size luxury cars from best to worst by combining their ratings on driving performance, standard features, design, and value.
7. 2023 Lexus LS

The 2023 Lexus LS sits at the bottom of our full-size luxury car rankings because of a small backseat and a finicky infotainment system (a common complaint with Lexus vehicles as of late). On the positive side of things, the LS has an upscale cabin with premium finishing materials and great reliability ratings.
6. 2023 Genesis G90

The 2023 Genesis G90 also packs a large number of standard features into a competitively-priced vehicle. The G90 features sporty engine options, an intuitive instrument layout, and a comfortable interior design. One of the few knocks against it is below-average fuel economy ratings. If you are familiar with the G80, this is the larger version.
5. 2023 BMW 7-Series

The BMW 7-Series has a superb drivetrain that allows it to float down the road surefootedly and responsively. Being a BMW, it comes with a long list of standard and optional tech features, and it features a plush cabin with refined materials.
4. 2023 Audi A8

Once you close the door on your Audi A8, the sounds of the outside world are left behind. The quiet and comfortable ride is further accented by a handsome interior layout and a spacious interior cabin. A step above the A6, the Audi A8 offers greater luxury and space.
3. 2023 Tesla Model S

For those wary of electric vehicles, the Tesla Model S will convince any skeptic. It’s peppy. It has agile handling. It has the long-range necessary for worry-free road trips. It’s roomy and luxurious so you don’t feel cheated out of the upscale price. The minor drawbacks that kept it from the top spot are no smartphone integration (in 2023!) and an infotainment interface that can be somewhat distracting (basically a 17-in. iPad).
2. 2023 Porsche Panamera

The 2023 Porsche Panamera features powerful engines and responsive steering that will have you zipping in and out of traffic on your way to the office or while running your errands about town. With its comfortable seats and spacious interior, it will be fun for drivers and passengers alike. New for 2023 is standard adaptive cruise control.
1. 2023 Mercedes-Benz S-Class

Frankly, the Mercedes-Benz is extravagant. The interior design is unlike anything else in the market and to say the features list is comprehensive would be an understatement. Add to all that a powerful engine and fine-tuned driving, and you’ve got one of the best full-size luxury cars available. The new S-Class features new paint and upholstery options.
