BMW 6-Series GC takes on the rivals
The days of the traditional boxy saloon are numbered. Meet the new breed of more-door supercoupe
Posted: 07 Aug 2012
The Audi A7 to buy isn't the A7 that's here. We'd forget the S Line and get the SE, for its softer springs and 18s, and that'd go some way to solving the harsh ride and the road noise. We love its engine and traction. The hatchback makes it useful, but the roads are full of five-door hatchbacks, so it seems less special than the CLS and 6-Series.
The Mercedes is the cheapest car here, but the one that moves most expensively. It's the quietest, the smoothest,the best-riding and the best in town or the suburbs or on motorways, which are the environments these cars will almost inevitably spend most of their time in. As it happens, I don't like its looks, but you might, and if you did, it's a finely engineered choice.
