You have your work cut out for you if you’re in the market for a compact luxury sedan.
One of our favorites for its all-around competency is the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
It’s expensive and spartan at every level against its rivals, but it’s also built and engineered to a standard we almost thought Mercedes had forgotten.
The Jaguar XE gets our blood pumping with its grippy handling and communicative steering, even if it’s tight inside.
Cadillac’s ATS entertains in similar ways to the Jag and has its own swagger, plus it’s often discounted.
Audi’s latest A4 is the segment’s leader on paper, even if it’s light on personality in the real world.
And, of course, the BMW 3-Series has long been the segment’s default for enthusiasts, even if it’s not quite as dynamic as it once was.
