The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
5.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 BMW M2 works hard to keep things simple, and to keep its price under control—and to bring back some of the driver’s seat sensations that have gone missing in other recent M cars. The 2017 Buick Cascada's sunny demeanor is best when the road is smooth.
