TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2019 Alfa Romeo is the cognoscenti’s sports sedan, and not just because it’s Italian. The 2019 BMW 330i moves back toward the sweet spot in sport-sedan greatness, with M Sport and M editions still to come. Pricey and on the slighter side of mid-size, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class drops a beautiful cockpit, huge dollops of safety, and effortless AMG brilliance into the sport-sedan mix.
