The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 BMW 7-Series has a much bigger grille, but behind it is a posh, powerful, thirsty luxury sedan that’s loaded with tech. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the benchmark for large luxury sedans. It’s expensive, but the Porsche Panamera proves that old saw about getting what you pay for.
