The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class isn't quite a sports car, but it's a rapid, open-air touring coupe extraordinaire. The 2017 Aston Martin Vantage is one of the few remaining bespoke sports cars, likely one of the final years before the automaker capitalizes on its partnership with Mercedes-Benz.
