The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
Forget this model's recent past; the 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class takes a half-step up in size and a full step ahead of its peer set in sophistication -- and it's now one very charming luxury car. The 2014 Audi A4 and S4 are trim, tech-savvy alternatives to the usual German luxury sedans, and to one stunningly good American one.
