The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.6
7.5

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2017 BMW M4 is a near-perfect performance coupe that can be hugely rewarding to competent drivers. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class adds to the impressive roster with a convertible version this year and a newly minted AMG C43 version. Bavaria is even better now.
