Quick Specs
The Audi A5 coupe and convertible are sleek and supple, providing relaxed yet sporty dynamics in a tidy package.
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.
The 2016 BMW 4-Series Coupe and Convertible break away from the 3-Series sedans with a little more flamboyance.
The 2016 Lexus RC adds more low-end models, but it's still the racy RC F that comes closes to the Teutonic performance titans.
