The Car Connection's Take

9.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Rolls-Royce Wraith is the most powerful car the brand has ever built, yet it's just as luxurious and refined as any other Rolls, as well. 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.
