The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
6.7
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Audi A4 advances its sport-sedan credentials in lots of incremental ways, but the virtual cockpit drops the digital mic. The 2017 BMW M3 is a track-ready sports sedan with an unblemished pedigree that announces to the world: "Ask me what DTM means." A legitimate sports car in a sedan or coupe body, the 2017 Cadillac ATS-V rewards drivers with exceptionally polished handling and performance, making it truly in the league with Germany's best.
