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 Lincoln MKZ places many of its bets on its distinctive styling, as well as its modern technology and best-in-class fuel economy. The 2014 Volvo S60 offers safe, well-crafted design, and runs the gamut from comfortable and quiet to flamboyant and edgy.
