The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 BMW M4 is a near-perfect performance coupe that can be hugely rewarding to competent drivers. All Lexus RC models offer engaging dynamics and plenty of style, though this sporty coupe could stand to drop a few pounds and its base engines aren't up to snuff.
