When it comes to practical vehicle choices, the luxury sedan has been a crowd favorite for many years. Maybe this is thanks to their easily accessible, four-door configuration. Perhaps it’s because of the variety of choices and styles that sedans come in.
Regardless of the reason, the luxury sedan has made a huge impact on the automotive industry. With advancements in technology and luxury, automakers producing more fuel-efficient vehicles, it doesn’t look like their popularity will fade anytime soon. Below is a list of the top 2016 luxury sedans on the market.
2016 Audi A4
Audi has always been a luxury automaker, and it proved why with its 2016 Audi A4. The A4 packs a lot of power under the hood thanks to a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces around 220 horsepower.
Despite offering all of this power, the A4 still offers competitive fuel economy, averaging a combined 27 mpg. The A4 comes with a CVT and front-wheel drive as standard. However, you can opt for the all-wheel drive model that can be paired with either an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual.
While the exterior looks like a luxury car, it’s the interior that takes luxury to another level. Featuring only high-quality materials, the A4 is built for style and comfort. It’s easy to see why the Audi continues to make some of the best luxury sedans on the market.
2016 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid
The 2016 Acura RLX Sport Hybrid remains one of the best-kept secrets in the automotive industry. The car is overlooked because of other heavyweights in its class, but Acura really stepped up its game.

All you have to do is take one look at the BMW 750i Xdrive to see that it’s a luxury car. From its slick design to its high-tech interior, this BMW aims to please all. There are two main reasons this car makes the list.
First is its outstanding technology, which can be controlled with simple gestures. That’s right, you never have to touch any of the controls in the car. Don’t have time to answer an incoming call? Simply wave it away with a hand gesture.

Can you have a list of the best luxury sedans without having a Cadillac on it? Of course not, which is why the 2016 Cadillac CT6 is here. This sedan is cutting edge in every sense of the phrase.
Featuring an aluminum construction to save on weight, the CT6 provides superior handling and control. This time around, Cadillac chose to shun the V8 for a more fuel-efficient turbocharged V6 engine. However, don’t think that the drop in engine size is going to hurt the power this car puts out. It’s still able to produce 400 horsepower with 400 pounds of torque.
As far as technology, the CT6 aims to impress with a large 10.2-inch touch screen. You can interact with it using a touch pad located directly by the armrest. Best of all, this touch pad can understand handwritten letters. Oh, and if the security system is ever triggered, it starts recording 360-degree video around the car.

It can produce 590 pounds of torque and go about 192 mph. It is all-wheel drive and features a seven-speed dual clutch manual transmission. When you drive this car, you may be driving a sedan, but it won’t feel like it.
2016 Jaguar XJR LWB
The XJR LWB is one of the flagships of Jaguar, and the 2016 model is no different. This time, the sedan comes packed with power thanks to a V8 engine that can produce 550 horsepower. The inside is very roomy and the seats can save up to four seating positions. The interior is made out of some of the finest materials ever used in a Jaguar vehicle, and the exterior was designed with style in mind.
While the fuel economy takes a hit due to the sheer power of the engine, offering only 15 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway, the XJR LWB makes up for it with technology. The inside features such comforts as dual climate control, an 8-inch touch screen media display and a Wi-Fi hot spot.
