The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Chevrolet SS is a true 'sleeper' sedan -- packing the Corvette's glorious 6.2-liter V-8 into a sedan bodystyle that's relatively anonymous, yet well tuned and up to the task. The 2014 BMW 5-Series is simultaneously a classic sport sedan and a technology-packed grand tourer.
