The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 BMW 4-Series Coupe and Convertible break away from the 3-Series sedans with a little more flamboyance. The 2016 Lexus RC adds more low-end models, but it's still the racy RC F that comes closes to the Teutonic performance titans.
