The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The new 2011 BMW 5-Series might be a conservative evolution in terms of styling and design, but it’s a quite radical one with regard to how BMW’s most important model drives. The 2011 Cadillac CTS-V packs the Corvette ZR1's powertrain, and much of its excitement, into fashionable Coupe, Sedan, or Sport Wagon variants that are track-ready but day-to-day comfortable.
