The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
9.0
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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class is one very charming luxury car; in AMG trim, it's risen above and beyond Bavarian levels of handling.
