TCC’s Bottom Line
A pretty, talented family of coupes and convertibles, the A5 lineup ranges from the black-sheep CVT Cabrio to the unabashedly awesome RS5. Strikingly handsome, fun to drive, well-built, and competitive on pricing and features, the 2013 Cadillac CTS continues the brand's good reputation.
