The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Maserati Ghibli has panache to burn, but back-seat space is tight and handling isn't quite up to the best in the mid-size class. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class looks better than ever, offers upgraded tech and safety, and continues to post impressive performance.
