The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
7.2
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 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.
