The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
7.8
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. With two new engine options, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class reminds us that life is good at the top.
