The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan scales up the ATS' handsome profile and spot-on handling, and tops it off with a winning Vsport edition. The 2014 Lexus GS has more distinction and better handling to match improved connectivity; even so, it's still playing catch-up.
