TCC’s Bottom Line
With the 2014 Rapide S, Aston Martin delivers an exclusive classic touring-car design with quintessentially British styling, and the sharp, balanced driving experience of a sports car. 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.
