The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Lexus GS family offers a classic, conservative sport-sedan profile -- and enough performance to please most -- but overlays it with as much luxury and technology as you please. The 2015 Cadillac CTS sedan is a stunner–especially in V-Sport guise–and it looks great, too.
