The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
6.5
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 Lincoln MKZ is a comfortable, quiet luxury sedan with the right ingredients but lacks in execution.
