The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Lexus IS gives BMW, Mercedes-Benz, and Infiniti a real challenge, though it's still a little less performance-oriented than the competition. The 2010 Cadillac CTS takes an edgy, American approach to European performance-and style, with the stunning CTS Sport Wagon.
