The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

TCC’s Bottom Line
A soft ride and roomy interior still form the solid base for the 2009 Buick Lucerne’s appeal. 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. Still turning heads after five years on the road, the 2009 Chrysler 300 is one of the kings of cool in the large sedan market.
