The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
With its perky, composed all-wheel-drive performance, the 2014 Audi Allroad isn't just the family pick of the A4 lineup; it's a better-driving alternative to taller crossovers. The 2014 Lexus IS is an important car for the brand, and at first impression, the redesign is off to a good start.
