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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class goes to excess--the right kinds of excess--to preserve its best-of status. The 2018 Volvo V90 wagon is a more stylish, sportier-looking alternative to ubiquitous luxury SUVs.
