The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.4
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class makes an emotional appeal for its claim as the best sedan in the world, and we're feeling it. The 2014 Porsche Panamera adds to the desirability of an already heady mix of performance, style, and functionality.
