The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Maserati Quattroporte performs with some of the verve of a sports car, and aims to make new converts from those who drive stodgy luxury cars. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS retains its fashion-forward look, while adding efficiency and, in AMG form, even more impressive performance.
