TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Audi S4 balances perfectly performance with luxury in a package that's both practical and sharp. Hardly a recipe for excitement, but one that touches all the bases. The 2018 BMW 3-Series makes its strongest case in performance for luxury compact buyers’ attentions. The 2018 Jaguar XE is the other, other compact luxury sedan. It aims high, and mostly delivers.
