The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS retains its fashion-forward look, while adding efficiency and, in AMG form, even more impressive performance. The 2014 Porsche Panamera adds to the desirability of an already heady mix of performance, style, and functionality.
