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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers elegant comfort and luxury in several flavors, with a thrifty diesel and a high-performance V-8 for those at either end of the spectrum.
