The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Bristling with performance and technology, the 2013 Mercedes-Benz CL Class still is cozy enough to coddle the super-wealthy. Perfectly behaved and universally unflappable, the 2013 Bentley Continental GT downsizes into a V-8 future without losing its grip on luxury or performance.
