TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2020 Audi A6 is as good as mid-size luxury sedans get—for those still shopping sedans. The 2020 BMW 5-Series is the goldilocks mid-sizer with a roundel on the hood: comfortable, powerful, and luxurious. In its final year, the 2020 Cadillac CT6 is a tempting look at what could have been from the luxury brand.
