The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Earthy exhaust tones and serene handling carve out a distinctive niche for the fabulous Maserati GranTurismo. The 2013 Mercedes-Benz SL Class toughens up its image and its handling, but still feels more content as a grand touring grand dame.
