Cadillac ELR
Sensitive brakes need a little getting used to. Overall, very smooth.

There's a lot of derision bout this car's price tag, and while that does matter, it shouldn't take away from what I see as a host of positives about this car. It looks great--pleasantly similar to the concept--the driver's seating position is spot on--cozy by not cramped--and the running gear is a proven success. Still not going to fully accept CUE, however, but that's not the ELR's fault.

Could it be the luxury car of tomorrow?

Cadillac Escalade
Big dude is nimble on its feet. 6.2 V8 has loads of power.

Big, but so comfy for long trips!

Mercedes-Benz S 550 Coupe
Cadence of the engine is mesmerizing. Temptation to go fast is hard to resist. Controls are bit confusing at first.

Rich in technology. Wonderful to drive.

An incredibly developped machine!

It's not an interior; it's the penthouse suite.

Sublime. Every aspect of this car is superb.
