TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Acura TL is an attractive, comfortable, well-appointed luxury sedan. Choose the SH-AWD model, and you have yourself a legitimate sport sedan, too. The 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan scales up the ATS' handsome profile and spot-on handling, and tops it off with a winning Vsport edition.
