TCC’s Bottom Line
Brilliance takes many forms in the Audi A6: the diesel-driven TDI, the supercharged A6, or the turbocharged S6 all stand out in ways the sedate body doesn't quite match. The 2014 BMW 5-Series is simultaneously a classic sport sedan and a technology-packed grand tourer. The 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan scales up the ATS' handsome profile and spot-on handling, and tops it off with a winning Vsport edition.
