TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Audi A7 is a desirable low-guilt luxury car with an added dose of practicality. Bigger, bulkier, bawdier: The 2019 BMW 8-Series bucks all Bavaria’s typical instincts and revels in its life choices. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is graceful and serene with impressive performance available.
