The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Bentley Continental doesn't stir the soul the way its two-door siblings do, but it's a powerful, smooth, refined, and eminently luxurious sedan. Bucking tradition and the ordinary, the 2012 Porsche Panamera mostly succeeds in being an excellent large fastback sedan.
