TCC’s Bottom Line
The Audi A3 sports the looks and technology that draw buyers into the brand in a fun-to-drive package. The 2020 2-Series Gran Coupe fills the smallest void in the BMW lineup. The 2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class sedan is the most affordable new Mercedes on sale. Its three-pointed star will be the attraction, but there’s plenty to stick around for after.
