TCC’s Bottom Line

Quick and sexy, the 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia is an appealing Italian take on the sport sedan. The flexible 2021 BMW 3-Series lineup offers something for everyone, so long as they’re not smitten with SUVs. Svelte, sporty, and somewhat understated, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class should be at the top of your compact luxury sedan shopping list.
