TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Audi S8 pairs thrilling acceleration with excellent big-car handling and discreet luxury. Don’t let the conservative wrapper fool you, the 2016 BMW 7-Series charges boldly into a new generation as a sporty big sedan, with new ride-and-handling tech, space-age construction, and a plug-in hybrid version.
