TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Audi A6 is a mid-size luxury sedan that skips flash and fast for a comfortable ride with an understated exterior. The 2019 BMW M5 sedan is a high-performance luxury car without compromise and few rivals. With two new engine options, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class reminds us that life is good at the top.
