    MotorTrend compares the 2012 Audi A7 3.0 TFSI to the 2012 CLS550 along with the Jaguar XJ

    This is kind of an odd comparison as the cars are not exactly direct rivals. The CLS and A7 are a natural comparison but not when it is the CLS500 vs. the supercharged V6 A7. The S7 is going to be the car that competes with the CLS550 since it will also have a turbocharged V8. The Jaguar XJ isn't a 4 door coupe and is more of an A8 and S-class competitor. So, the cars are not really positioned against each other all that well but they end up picking the CLS550 which was also the fastest car. The Audi was the best handling.

    The CLS will own the 4-door coupe market.

    That guy is a complete melvin. Who the f*ck is hiring these people at MotorTrend.

    He is wrong about the styling. It kills the original CLS. It is the best looking 4-door in showrooms.

    Definitely agree with you on the styling as well as the CLS being the best in the segment.

    I disagree, the previous one is still my favorite.

    But i'm not sure why they are in love with XJ's design, the front is beautiful but the tail could have been designed better.

    My neighbor just got one.

    Honestly one best looking cars I have seen in person in a long long time. Very impressed to say the least.

    The front of the old CLS now looks very out of date.
