TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2015 Cadillac CTS sedan is a stunner–especially in V-Sport guise–and it looks great, too. The 2015 Hyundai Genesis is no longer just a great luxury-car value; it's a legitimate alternative to the heavyweights. The 2015 Kia K900 reaches for the luxury stars--and grabs a little Lexus and old-school Cadillac, though it falls well short of Audi.
