The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Audi A4 has grown into a more useful luxury sedan, though it goes overboard with optional, programmable handling. The 2009 Cadillac CTS continues to compete with the best from Mercedes and BMW with a distinctly American approach, boasting some of the top tech features in its class. The 2009 Volkswagen CC is not the safest, most practical, or sportiest sedan in its segment, but its interior and exterior styling are matched only by vehicles costing significantly more.
