The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is already a top of the line sedan and difficult to surpass. Unless it surpasses itself. The Mercedes-Maybach counterpart boasts more space, adding to the ride and comfort of the vehicle. Speaking of comfort, nothing has been spared. The spacious interior holds a variety of passenger conveniences, including massaging and reclining executive rear seats, individual power seats with calf rests, and optional folding tables. Indeed it is a worthy competitor for the 2019 Bentley Continental GT.

The sleek exterior will delight luxury sedan enthusiasts. Mercedes-Benz describes the 2019 S-Class sedan as such: “Visually, the 2019 model instantly cuts a more elevated figure than before. The grille, inspired by a pinstripe suit, strikes a note of sheer exclusivity. A two-tone exterior paint finish — now available in nine different colors — conveys the vehicle´s classic pedigree. An optional double clear coat lends an unsurpassed sense of elegance to darker paint options — with the second coat hand-applied by trained specialists.”

If you want to feel like the secret agent 007, this is your car. Aston Martin has retooled the DB11, turning up the looks and performance. This luxury sedan blends style with power seamlessly. A 503 horsepower twin-turbo 4.0 liter V-8 is standard, but you can opt for the twin turbo 5.2-liter V-12. This will launch the DB11 from zero to 60 miles per hour in just 3.6 seconds. Reports are that the vehicle handles beautifully.

But how does it look? Aston Martin is proud of the new design. This is how they describe the bold exterior of the 2019 DB11: “A fearless design philosophy has led to DB11’s iconic looks. Discover the striking new grille, clamshell bonnet, and innovative Aston Martin Aeroblade™, which cleverly removes the need for a rear spoiler by harnessing airflow to enhance stability.” We might even like it slightly better than the 2019 Bentley Continental GT.

Clients that demand power but refuse to compromise on in-car comfort, sporty elegance, and impeccable detailing,” Ferrari explains.
