Which small luxury saloon would you recommend?

I need to downsize from my Jaguar XJ and want to buy something that's smaller and luxurious. I like the new Mercedes-Benz C200 saloon and also the Lexus IS2500 which has been around longer. Is the Lexus being replaced soon? - and which would you recommend?

The IS250 was new a couple of years ago. But the best IS is the base model IS300h hybrid.
