TCC’s Bottom Line

More practical and more elegant than the A6 sedan, the Audi A7 drives better than ever and takes on next-level technology. The 2019 BMW M6 Gran Coupe is a thrilling lame-duck sedan with stunning looks. Look beyond the evolutionary looks; the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has one heck of a hybrid powertrain.
