The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Maserati Quattroporte is a rare sight, but shouldn't be—it's gorgeous, with sharp, Ferrari-flavored performance. 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.
