The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan swings to the masculine side of the pendulum and sharpens its driving appeal in the process. The 2008 Audi A6 has plenty of competition, but its graceful look and feel set it apart from more brutal German and more clinical Japanese iron.
