The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.8
7.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 BMW 4-Series is an above-average coupe or convertible with sharp road manners and confident powertrains. The bad news? The 4-Series has personality like business casual. The 2018 Audi A5 gets a hatchback body style that adds a measure of utility to go with its sleek and sporty luxury cachet.
