The Car Connection's Take

5.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The flexible 2021 BMW 3-Series lineup offers something for everyone, so long as they’re not smitten with SUVs. It may not be the freshest design, but the 2022 Infiniti Q50 rewards with good power and a decent value proposition. The 2022 Mercedes C-Class pares down its lineup and plumps up with lots of screens and mild-hybrid performance.
