The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Audi A4 blends a conservative luxury compact car with spicy performance and robust wagon flavors. The 2022 Genesis G70 leads with luxury trimmings and service—and its footwork has caught up to its German rivals. The 2022 Mercedes C-Class pares down its lineup and plumps up with lots of screens and mild-hybrid performance.
