The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Cadillac CTS takes an edgy, American approach to European performance-and style, with the stunning CTS Sport Wagon. The 2009 Audi A4 has grown into a more useful luxury sedan, though it goes overboard with optional, programmable handling.
