TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 BMW 7-Series is not just luxurious and comfortable, but exceptionally quick and technologically advanced. 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. The 2014 Porsche Panamera adds to the desirability of an already heady mix of performance, style, and functionality.
