The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
7.8
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 2008 Lincoln MKZ is a credible luxury bargain, with all-wheel drive and heritage styling cues as its killer apps.
