The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 BMW 4-Series Coupe and Convertible build on the bones of the 3-Series sport sedan, with comparable performance but a little more flesh and flair. The 2015 Lexus RC Coupe takes the brand in a racier—yet still sensible—direction; and it's one of the best-looking Lexus models yet.
