The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2019 Audi A4 is hiding in plain sight as one of the automaker’s most complete and well-rounded cars.
