The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Cadillac CTS-V is about as close as you can get to a four-door Corvette; Cadillac manages to beat top German sports sedans with a track-ready sedan that doesn’t forget about comfort. You give up quite a bit of functionality in the name of style with the 2010 Volkswagen CC, but it offers a premium look and feel at an affordable price.
