BMW 4-Series vs Merc C-Coupe vs Audi A5
BMW's two-door successor to the 3-Series coupe has arrived. We test it against its German competition

To make the most sense of these cars at this price, the key is to get your options right. It'd be easy to blow money on extras - up to 10 grand if you're not careful - without greatly improving the fundamental experience. We're not suggesting you skimp completely, and some options do float to the top: the Merc's sound system is almost seismic, and the BMW's infotainment upgrade is a no-brainer. And an A5 with four-wheel drive, adaptive ride and smaller alloy wheels would feel like a very different car from the version we've tried here. Although ultimately, not one we'd be inclined to choose over the other two.
