The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 BMW M4 loses a little bit of weight and its normally aspirated V-8, leaving a potent twin-turbo six and nearly unflappable handling in their place. Supple and sleek, the Audi A5 coupe and convertible get more rational to us as they reach into S5 and RS 5 territory.
