The 2014 BMW 3-Series, like the new 2015 C-Class is larger and more high-tech than its predecessor was, and offers many of the same benefits--though it lacks some of the higher-end safety electronics found on the Mercedes.
Audi's A4 is equally stylish, with a similar take on turbocharged, all-wheel drive powertrains, but a perhaps more understated presence.
Cadillac's ATS is an engaging sports sedan, with a composed chassis and quality interior, but it, too, lacks many of the more advanced technological features found on the C-Class.
Lexus' IS is more futuristically styled, yet also somewhat less enthusiastically powered, but offers compelling value in the segment.
Infiniti's Q60 exceeds even the C-Class in some technological respects, especially its steering-by-wire system, and it's beautiful to look at, but glitches in the infotainment system have plagued early examples.
