The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Maserati GranTurismo mates serene yet sporty handling with a beautiful Ferrari V-8 engine note for one fabulous luxury coupe. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is sportier than its predecessor, but still manages to coddle its occupants just as before.
