TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2017 BMW 5-Series may do for tech sedans what turn-of-the-century 5-Series did for sport sedans. The 2017 Genesis G80 is one of the first new cars from the nascent luxury carmaker, and it's a good leg to stand on. With the 2017 E-Class, Mercedes-Benz is pushing the boundaries of its autonomous driving technology, and backing it up with S-Class style.
