The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Cadillac XTS has virtues beyond its size; as a VSport, it's an exceedingly comfortable, quick cruiser. The 2016 Lexus ES is is more comfortable, roomy, and practical than the sport sedans it is priced against, especially the 300h Hybrid, which delivers excellent fuel economy for far less than its "green luxury" rivals.
