The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
Supple and sleek, the Audi A5 coupe and convertible get more rational to us as they reach into S5 and RS 5 territory. The 2014 BMW 4-Series stays resolutely in the same orbit as the last 3er two-door: everything's just a little better than it was, except its steering and its styling.
