The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

8.8
7.4

TCC’s Bottom Line

With unerring focus on handling, Cadillac finally has the 3-Series' number with the 2013 ATS. The 2013 Lexus IS 250 and IS 350 look like exciting sport sedans--especially in F Sport guise--though they're not as fun to drive or even as fuel-efficient as other small sport sedans.
