TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Audi A4 and S4 sedans are tech-laden, trim, handsome alternatives to the other expected German cars, as well as one very good American one. The 2015 BMW 3-Series lineup is a sport sedan at heart, but with Sports Wagon and Gran Turismo (hatchback) models, it's a lot more than that. The 2015 Cadillac ATS hits all the right marks in handling, performance, quality, comfort, and technology.
