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 Lexus IS is an important car for the brand, and at first impression, the redesign is off to a good start.
