The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V is arguably the greatest American performance sedan ever, and we will miss it dearly when it's discontinued after 2019. Look beyond the evolutionary looks; the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has one heck of a hybrid powertrain.
