The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.8
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 Maserati GranTurismo mates serene yet sporty handling with a beautiful Ferrari V-8 engine note for one fabulous luxury coupe.
