The 2010 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG has its road work cut out for it, facing a quartet of compelling sedans in the same price and performance class.
The Audi S4 is new this year with a supercharged V-6 engine, a lower price tag, and the benefit of all-wheel drive.
The others return essentially unchanged from 2009, with the Cadillac CTS-V turning into an unexpected titan in the class, boasting Corvette-inspired power and knife-edged styling to set it apart.
BMW's M3 is the perennial here, and it's offered in convertible and sedan forms, if four doors aren't sexy enough for you.
