The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
9.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Bentley Continental GT family of coupes shows that brash performance can live hand in hand with a genteel demeanor. Coupe, Cabriolet, and Maybach versions—and even a Plug-In Hybrid—make the 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class far more diverse and adventurous than it used to be; it's now not just a flagship sedan, but a family of flagships.
