The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Aston Martin Rapide S is a stunning sedan and a relative rarity on U.S. roads compared to rivals from Porsche and Mercedes-Benz. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is the first of its kind and in need of a makeover. It's still timeless, but it's also time for what's next.
