TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2016 Audi S7 is one of the most beautiful cars on the road today, plus it packs serious performance and abundant high-tech equipment. The 2016 Infiniti Q70—especially in its long-wheelbase form—poses an interesting alternative to conservative German luxury sedans. The 2016 Maserati Ghibli has tight back-seat space, and handling isn't best in class, but it has panache to burn.
