The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
With a small dose of added flamboyance, the 2017 BMW 4-Series is the fun-loving sibling to the more pedestrian 3-Series sedan and wagon. 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.
