With a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive and V-6 or V-8 engines, the 2010 Cadillac STS/STS-V slots right alongside the mid-size luxury sedans from Germany and Japan, but both those vehicles are new for 2010 and 2011.
The new E-Class takes a turn to the edgy, and its styling doesn't win many friends, though it feels lighter and more adept than ever before.
Yet another STS rival is the new Jaguar XF/XFR, with a stunning new body, a boutique-hotel interior, and massively powerful V-8 engines but no all-wheel drive.
The Infiniti M models are due to be replaced in 2011 with a svelte new shape, but the 2010 models have a surprisingly roomy interior-including a spacious backseat, which is somewhat hard to find in this class-along with available all-wheel drive.
