The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
6.2
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Audi A5 is a coupe, convertible, or Sportback with verve and impressive standard features. The 2020 BMW 4-Series gets the vintage formula correct with good power in a compact shape. Pricey and on the slighter side of mid-size, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class drops a beautiful cockpit, huge dollops of safety, and effortless AMG brilliance into the sport-sedan mix.
