TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Bentley Continental Flying Spur isn't as driver-centric as the Continental coupes are, but it is a no-compromise luxury sedan with a fun streak. Covering its wide range of performance personalities, all with superb comfort and some of the world's top in-car tech, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz S Class is one model you'll be as happy to be in as to be seen in. The 2013 Porsche Panamera continues the success of the brand's unusual-looking fastback sport sedan.
