The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Maserati Ghibli brings Quattroporte-like style and elegance to a smaller, more affordable segment. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CL is cozy, comfortable and loaded with enough performance and technology to entertain even the ultra-wealthy.
