The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
For those focused on safety, technology, and comfort—but not necessarily performance—the 2014 Cadillac XTS is everything a big luxury sedan should be. The 2014 Lincoln MKS doesn't fly in the same business class with the best German luxosedans, but it's a quiet, capable alternative in the second tier of big, upscale sedans.
