The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.5
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class adds to the impressive roster with a convertible version this year and a newly minted AMG C43 version. Bavaria is even better now. A legitimate sports car in a sedan or coupe body, the 2017 Cadillac ATS-V rewards drivers with exceptionally polished handling and performance, making it truly in the league with Germany's best.
