The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2019 Audi A5 is a coupe, convertible, or Sportback with verve and impressive standard features. The 2019 BMW 4-Series distills our favorite parts from the related 3-Series and packages them in a better shape. The 2019 Cadillac ATS pares down to only a two-door coupe this year as it heads toward the sunset as Cadillac's sporty compact.
