The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.6
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 Lincoln MKZ is missing some heritage, but this luxury sedan is no longer missing the sportier new direction that could do this brand some good.
