TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Audi A4 and S4 are trim, tech-savvy alternatives to the usual German luxury sedans, and to one stunningly good American one. The 2014 BMW 3-Series retains its sporting heritage, but has grown to become a high-tech, spacious, comfortable, and safe range of vehicles. The 2014 Cadillac ATS puts the Germans on notice in handling and performance, while hitting high marks in quality and comfort, too.
