The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 BMW 3-Series delivers outstanding performance and comfort in a tastefully understated package. The 2016 Cadillac ATS meets all the benchmarks for performance, features, and driving dynamics, and it somehow emerges to market with a little more soul than most of its key rivals. The 2016 Lexus IS doesn't quite hit the high-water mark set by German rivals, but it's a pleasantly capable compact luxury car.
