The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Bentley Flying Spur exudes opulence with its V-8 or W-12 engine. Both models deliver smooth, willing power and luxurious comfort. 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. The 2016 Rolls-Royce Ghost is audacious in its opulence, but responsive on the road—just what the leaders of the world demand.
