The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Bigger, bulkier, bawdier: The 2019 BMW 8-Series bucks all Bavaria’s typical instincts and revels in its life choices. The 2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class delivers effortless power, sublime handling, scads of safety features, and the incontrovertible impression of wealth, tastefully applied.
