The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
With the addition of a beautiful, expressive new Coupe, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is no longer just the best sedan in the world; it's now a family of flagship models. The 2014 Rolls-Royce Ghost is a hyperluxury sedan that commands the attention, but unlike most other vehicles in its class, it doesn't mind to let the driver have a little bit of fun.
