The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Carrying forward 2012's more muscular looks with inimitable style, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz CLS Class gets new high-tech options while keeping its surprising performance. Refined, nimble, and a scorcher in R trim, the Jaguar XF's only remaining hurdle to greatness is back-seat space.
