The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
Respectable performance and top technology make the 2010 Lexus GS 350 and GS 460 worthwhile sport sedans, but low points include a cramped backseat and a GS 450h hybrid model that fails to wow for fuel economy. The 2010 Cadillac CTS takes an edgy, American approach to European performance-and style, with the stunning CTS Sport Wagon.
