The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Don’t let the conservative wrapper fool you, the 2016 BMW 7-Series charges boldly into a new generation as a sporty big sedan, with new ride-and-handling tech, space-age construction, and a plug-in hybrid version. For the 2016 model year, Audi's A8 focuses in on the big, sporty luxury it's good at and jettisons the short-wheelbase versions previously offered.
