TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia presents plenty of compelling reasons to jump ship from the “default” sports sedan brands. The 2018 BMW 3-Series makes its strongest case in performance for luxury compact buyers’ attentions. Very expensive and still not very large, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class nonetheless leads its luxury niche with fabulous style and fantastic power and grip.
