The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 BMW 4-Series Coupe and Convertible build on the bones of the 3-Series sport sedan, with comparable performance but a little more flesh and flair. The Audi A5 coupe and convertible are sleek and supple, but make the most sense in their S and RS guises.
