TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2020 Alfa Romeo Giulia combines agility and power in a sensuous Italian package. The 2020 BMW 3-Series is back on top among compact sport sedans, even as the competition closes in. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is as gorgeous inside as it is outside, and it has moves to match.
