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. The 2012 Lexus IS F is a unique take on the luxury/performance formula, and will appeal to those that find the Germans too performance-focused.
