The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Audi A4 is hiding in plain sight as one of the automaker’s most complete and well-rounded cars. The 2019 Lexus IS has sports sedan intentions, but it needs more underhood muscle and fresher styling to keep pace with German rivals.
