The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Cadillac STS drives well-the STS-V is a trailblazer-but the cramped backseat and well-worn styling haven't kept pace in the luxury class. The 2010 Lincoln MKS reaches into Euro-luxury territory with smart performance, subdued good looks, and a roomy interior.
