The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Audi S4 blasts its way into a performance war with BMW and Mercedes-Benz-and Lexus, Infiniti, and Cadillac-thanks to a big price cut and 333 supercharged horsepower. More sport, more luxury, and more features for the money make the new 2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class a more attractive possibility.
