The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz S-Class delivers effortless power, sublime handling, scads of safety features, and the incontrovertible impression of wealth, tastefully applied. The 2019 Porsche Panamera leaves nothing on the table, in terms of performance, flexibility, and panache.
