The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 BMW 7-Series is a plush ride with plenty of powertrain options and customizable features that places it among the full-size greats. The 2018 Audi A8 is a luxurious full-size new car that's decidedly old school. It's comfortable and quiet, but lacking new self-driving features.
