The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
8.2
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. For those who have a want a value-oriented car that projects the right image, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz C-Class makes a lot of sense.
