The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
9.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. 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.
