LEXUS RC350 SPORTS LUXURY $88,280
The obvious rival to the Q60 is line-ball on price but, with 233kW/378Nm and a six-second sprint time, it doesn’t come close in terms of performance or on-road dynamics.
BMW 440i $99,900
Comparable pace and a similarly slick engine put the Bavarian on a performance par. The biggest issue is whether the blue and white badge is worth another $11,000.
MERCEDES-AMG C43 $105,616
Has the best blend of interior sophistication and outright performance — and so it should with a $17,000 premium.
