The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Audi A5 coupe and convertible are sleek and supple, providing relaxed yet sporty dynamics in a tidy package. All Lexus RC models offer engaging dynamics and plenty of style, though this sporty coupe could stand to drop a few pounds and its base engines aren't up to snuff.
