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 Buick Regal turbo intrigues us, with excellent styling and handling; we'd skip the base car, and make sure our back-seat passengers were small. Already appealing for its good looks and outstanding safety ratings, the 2016 Volvo S60 grows in interesting ways with the long-wheelbase Inscription and Cross Country soft off-roader.
