The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
6.7
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. All Lexus RC models offer engaging dynamics and plenty of style, though this sporty coupe could stand to drop a few pounds and its base engines aren't up to snuff.
