1. Mercedes-Benz S-Class
Starting price: $94,400
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is one of the top German cars sold in America. The auto is the embodiment of what Americans think of when it comes to German engineering and luxury. The starting price for the car is not for those looking to save money; however, consumers who can afford the auto have a choice between the 4.7 liter twin-turbo eight cylinder engine rated at 449 horsepower, or the 6.0 liter twin-turbo V-12 rated at 523 horsepower. Both options come with a seven-speed automatic transmission and a choice between either all-wheel or rear-wheel drive. The car can go from zero to 60 MPH in 4.5 seconds, and it has a top overall speed of 130 MPH. The S-Class gets average-to-below-average fuel economy at 16 MPG (city) and 24 MPG (highway).
