The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
With unerring focus on handling, Cadillac finally has the 3-Series' number with the 2013 ATS. The 2013 Ford Taurus gets improved performance and is more of a technology and luxury flagship than ever--although its 'smaller inside' packaging continues to limit its appeal.
