The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.0
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Lexus IS has sports sedan intentions, but it needs more underhood muscle and fresher styling to keep pace with German rivals. The 2019 Audi A4 is hiding in plain sight as one of the automaker’s most complete and well-rounded cars.
