The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG sports a fluid ride, spot-on handling, and shrieking power to make it the most accomplished C-Class ever built. The 2008 Lexus IS-F challenges the best from Germany, bringing 168-mph capability with an uber-high pricetag to boot.
