The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The new CTS can keep up with Mercedes and BMW competitors without mimicking them, and boasts some of the top tech features in its class. The 2009 Lincoln MKS’s smart performance, subdued good looks, and roomy interior put the brand back in full-size, luxury-sedan territory.
