The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Ghibli brings Maserati panache at a lower price in a sleek sedan with a tight back seat and willing turbocharged V-6 power. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is the first of its kind and in need of a makeover. It's still timeless, but it's also time for what's next.
