The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
Stunning performance is still the calling card for the 2010 BMW M3; the weight it's gained may just be a sign of its success. The 2010 Cadillac CTS-V is about as close as you can get to a four-door Corvette; Cadillac manages to beat top German sports sedans with a track-ready sedan that doesn’t forget about comfort.
