The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Maserati Ghibli has tight back-seat space, and handling isn't best in class, but it has panache to burn. The 2016 Mercedes CLS-Class looks great—inside and out. But a new E-Class and more efficient powertrains may outrun the potent "four-door coupe" sooner rather than later.
