The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
You give up quite a bit of functionality in the name of style with the 2010 Volkswagen CC, but it offers a premium look and feel at an affordable price. The 2010 Cadillac CTS takes an edgy, American approach to European performance-and style, with the stunning CTS Sport Wagon.
