A new Cadillac CTS, bigger and brasher, means a renewed clash of some luxury-car titans.
The CTS looks like it's gunning right for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which has variety in its corner--all kinds of body styles, from sedan to coupe to wagon to cabriolet, not to mention hybrid and diesel powertrains and a sizzling AMG edition.
The BMW 5-Series isn't far behind in its triple-threat status, though the latest M5 hasn't been as happily received as the past versions.
Audi's A6 (and the hatchback iteration, the A7) come in front- or all-wheel drive, wrapped in their own slinky style statement--and they're fitted with geeky stuff like in-car 3G connectivity and Google Earth mapping.
The Lexus GS has an F Sport that finally approaches the Germans for handling finesse, and Infiniti's M sedan has always impressed us with its balanced handling and its glamorous cabin--where else can you get wood trim polished with silver dust?
