TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Audi A4 blends a conservative luxury compact car with spicy performance and robust wagon flavors. The 2021 Genesis G70 has the footwork of a contender; it’s a jab or two from landing a knockout punch on its German rivals. Svelte, sporty, and somewhat understated, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz C-Class should be at the top of your compact luxury sedan shopping list.
