TCC’s Bottom Line
The Audi A6 still has elegance and agility in its corner, though 0-60 mph times and rear-seat room continue to lag the competition. Whether as a sedan or wagon, the 2010 BMW 5-Series is a distinctly sportier, tech-savvy alternative to luxury rivals-without giving up any comfort. The 2010 Chrysler 300 and 300C sure aren't the freshest faces among large sedans, nor the safest or best appointed, but they're cool and classy, and they still feel uniquely and positively American.
