BMW and Mercedes are very very close so it depends on the model, C is better than 3 series, 5 is better than E class, S and 7 series are very close, Lexus is a dressed up Toyota so forget about it, Acura is just a Honda with the badge crossed and replaced by Acura badge, Infiniti is good and in my opinion the best japanese car that is close to BMW and Mercedes so for me Mercedes and BMW comes first then Infiniti

Well they all offer luxury in their own kind of way. This is how I view the brands as individuals. The Infiniti is the luxury car you buy when you want great performance out of your vehicle as well as a more sporty offering. A Lexus is a luxury vehicle wearing designer Toyota clothing trying it's best to be a Mercedes Benz, the maintenance and upkeep however is wonderful compared to a German car! Acura's are a fancy Honda but with very low costs to keep up and they offer all the luxuries of a luxury car. BMW's are a beast at performance with all the prestige of a German luxury car. Finally the car I drive and my favorite of the group, Mercedes Benz. Out of all these brands I'd say Mercedes is by far the most luxurious. Mercedes offers status, brand loyalty, luxury, prestige, and all the amentities and the durability you would expect from such a car. They are the most expensive of the group with expensive MSRP's and maintenance costs but there is no substitute when you drive a Mercedes Benz!

You can take Acura out of your list and add Audi as one of your choices. Acura just isn't a viable competitor in the luxury market against the Top Dogs listed above. Although it is a reliable product from the Honda branch it simply fails to compare with the performance and overall luxury & prestige factor of a BMW, Lexus, Audi, Infiniti & Mercedes Benz. Now to answer your question when someone first thinks of a luxury car the most common name that comes to mind is Mercedes Benz, however that is not to say they are the best luxury manufacturer. In terms of Japanese Luxury Lexus has claimed that title for several years however in today's market the tables have turned, Lexus is starting to become less of the top dog and more of the underdog, Infiniti has quickly become the main alternative to German luxury which is why it competes head to head with BMW & Audi hence the fact why most drivers in the luxury sports segment will most likely be cross shopping for a BMW, Audi or Infiniti. Mercedes Benz has always been the stereotypical prestigious luxury car but in terms of popularity & sales BMW is the most dominate of the three German rivals, consisting of Mercedes Benz, Audi & BMW. Audi as well as Infiniti have both come into the luxury market with a big bang these past 3 years, taking sales away from many of its competitors. To me the most prestigious German luxury car is BMW but in terms of Japanese Luxury I think Infiniti has quickly become the class leader. Bottom line BMW & Infiniti are my top two favorites however Lexus, Audi & Mercedes Benz are also popular sought out luxury cars.

I would have to agree with most of the answers above. You forgot Audi by the way. And I guess when I first think about a luxury brand the first thing that pops up in my head is Mercedes Benz. I think they have a lot of heritage in them as does BMW. BMW outsells Mercedes Benz but Mercedes to me would have to be the class leader among the German brands. As for Lexus and Infiniti, I think Lexus has gradually declined as the less desirable Japanese manufacturer, they are boring and underpowered. Personally I think Infiniti has replaced Lexus. Infiniti to me is the main contender for the Japanese luxury brands. Its the only viable competitor capable of taking on the Germans luxury & performance wise. I would narrow its down to Mercedes for the European side and Infiniti for the Japs side. But I'm so torn cause I honestly love Audi's new design but they lack so much horsepower for being such expensive cars, the Audi R8 is the only thing that is saving their asses.
