The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Cadillac STS-V is a more affordable rival to BMW's M5 and the Mercedes E63 AMG, with an overall look and feel that isn’t quite up to the standards of those German rivals. The 2008 BMW M5 has electrifying performance, but is saddled with an overdose of technology and a body in need of a few nips and tucks.
