The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Maserati Ghibli brings Quattroporte-like style and elegance to a smaller, more affordable segment. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS retains its fashion-forward look, while adding efficiency and, in AMG form, even more impressive performance.
