The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is sportier than its predecessor, but still manages to coddle its occupants just as before. The 2015 Aston Martin V12 Vantage S raps an exotic soundtrack, and delivers unsubtle performance in a gentlemanly way.
