The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.6
7.8

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2010 Audi S4 blasts its way into a performance war with BMW and Mercedes-Benz-and Lexus, Infiniti, and Cadillac-thanks to a big price cut and 333 supercharged horsepower. The 2010 Volvo S40 and V50 are ideal for inner-city confines, and with both economical and sporty models on offer, most buyers should be able to find a package they’re comfortable with.
