TCC’s Bottom Line
Magnificent design and technology sets the Audi A4 apart, but it's not quite as sporty as its BMW and Cadillac competition. The 2013 Lincoln MKZ strikes out in a more confident direction, and places a big bet on best-in-class fuel economy and technology. The stylish 2013 Volvo S60 family spans the range from luxurious to edgy, all while hitting the mark for safety and top-notch interior design.
