The Car Connection's Take

8.6
9.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Tesla Model S is a revolutionary electric car that blends sporty handling and lots of space, with a range of battery sizes so buyers can choose (and pay for) only the range they need. The 2013 Audi A7 and S7 are design standouts, refined performers, and more exciting, practical alternatives to sedans.
