TCC’s Bottom Line
No matter whether it's a coupe, convertible, or Gran Coupe, the 2014 BMW 6-Series covers soft and elegant as well as it does sharp and athletic. The 2014 Maserati Quattroporte is staged to impress once more, with a selection of strong twin-turbo engines and a bold new look, inside and out. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS retains its fashion-forward look, while adding efficiency and, in AMG form, even more impressive performance.
