The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 BMW 4-Series distills our favorite parts from the related 3-Series and packages them in a better shape. The 2019 Buick Cascada convertible means retirement like a gold watch. It’s stylish, small, and reasonably priced, but not very spacious. Pricey and on the slighter side of mid-size, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz C-Class drops a beautiful cockpit, huge dollops of safety, and effortless AMG brilliance into the sport-sedan mix.
