The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Audi A5 coupe and convertible are sleek and supple, providing relaxed yet sporty dynamics in a tidy package. The 2016 Lexus RC adds more low-end models, but it's still the racy RC F that comes closes to the Teutonic performance titans.
