The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.8
7.5

TCC’s Bottom Line

A sports car with a more practical body, the 2018 Cadillac ATS-V represents American engineering at its very best. Very expensive and still not very large, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz C-Class nonetheless leads its luxury niche with fabulous style and fantastic power and grip.
