TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Audi A4 is still a handsome, strong competitor with solid fuel economy and good power from its lone engine, even as the current generation comes to a close. The 2016 BMW 3-Series delivers outstanding performance and comfort in a tastefully understated package. The 2016 Cadillac ATS meets all the benchmarks for performance, features, and driving dynamics, and it somehow emerges to market with a little more soul than most of its key rivals.
