When it comes down to executive saloons, the Germans have the market swept. While the S Class has held the podium for longer than it perhaps should have regarding the technical innovation that slowly find its way into everyday cars, BMW and Audi have stepped up to challenge the Sebastian Vettels of the saloon market to the point that the three giants just now copy each others strategy until they produce the same vehicle.
