TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2017 Audi A7’s combination of sexy exterior style and healthy interior practicality make for a grand touring luxury sedan par excellence. The 2017 BMW 7-Series has a deceivingly conservative wrapper for its radically reengineered underpinnings and tech-centric cabin. The 2017 Tesla Model S is unlike any other car on the road for several reasons—good and bad.
