The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The M-Class gets a new lease on luxury-crossover life as the 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class—and it's joined by a swoopy new Coupe variant. The 2016 Porsche Macan has almost all the rippling, muscular performance of the bigger Cayenne, in a slightly more compact, slightly less expensive package.
