The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. With better looks, more efficient and powerful engines, and a less cluttered interior, the 2017 Porsche Panamera promises to be a better carn than the fun sport sedan it's always been.
