The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class makes an emotional appeal for its claim as the best sedan in the world, and we're feeling it. The 2013 Rolls-Royce Ghost is unquestionably deserving of its hyperluxury mantle, yet isn't ruffled by an owner that wants to take control personally.
