TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 BMW 7-Series is not just luxurious and comfortable, but exceptionally quick and technologically advanced. The 2014 Hyundai Equus gets even closer to what discerning luxury-car shoppers want—even if it still doesn't have the cachet. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class makes an emotional appeal for its claim as the best sedan in the world, and we're feeling it.
