Though buyers have started to move toward crossover SUVs, compact luxury sedans offer many compelling reasons not to follow the crowd.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class, with its swoopy styling and cossetting ride quality, makes an easy favorite.
The BMW 3-Series was once the default here, but today's model is soft unless the right options are selected.
Finally, if you’re open to sensual sustainability, maybe the Tesla Model 3 fits the bill.
Its all-electric driving fits the next-century profile of a Volvo buyer, but its interior’s more suited to a Playskool My First Computer toy and its build quality makes “iffy” sound like a relatively strong endorsement.
