The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
Magnificent design and technology sets the Audi A4 apart, but it's not quite as sporty as its BMW and Cadillac competition. Strikingly handsome, fun to drive, well-built, and competitive on pricing and features, the 2013 Cadillac CTS continues the brand's good reputation.
