TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Bentley Flying Spur delivers opulence matched by few luxury sedans, with a handcrafted cabin and smooth, willing power from either its V-8 or W-12 engines. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class lineup is more diverse than it's ever been and is still the benchmark by which all full-size luxury cars should be measured. Audacious in its opulence, but oriented toward a generation of buyers more inclined to drive than to be driven, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is a remarkable step forward for the brand.
