The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Audacious in its opulence, but oriented toward a generation of buyers more inclined to drive than to be driven, the Rolls-Royce Ghost is a remarkable step forward for the brand. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class lineup is more diverse than it's ever been and is still the benchmark by which all full-size luxury cars should be measured.
