The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C is a dazzling sports-car reincarnation of a heady past, and a future classic in its own right. The 2015 CLA is a small Mercedes done right, with enough of the brand's style and refinement mixed with a dash of youthfulness.
