The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Audi A7 is a tech powerhouse and design standout, showing that hatchback practicality can indeed be sexy. The 2012 Tesla Model S sedan turns out to be a much better car than most expected; it just might meld sport-sedan driving, interior space, and comfort with zero-emission running in one revolutionary package.
