The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.8
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
With its ZR1-derived powertrain, the 2012 Cadillac CTS-V stuffs 'Vette excitement into a track-ready Cadillac coupe, wagon or sedan. Forget that the 2012 Infiniti G Sedans are somewhat practical four-door designs; they can provide all the sensory thrills and dynamic satisfaction of full-fledged sports cars.
