The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Audi A4 has grown into a more useful luxury sedan, though it goes overboard with optional, programmable handling. The new CTS can keep up with Mercedes and BMW competitors without mimicking them, and boasts some of the top tech features in its class.
