TCC’s Bottom Line
Whether as a sedan or wagon, the 2010 BMW 5-Series is a distinctly sportier, tech-savvy alternative to luxury rivals-without giving up any comfort. The 2009 Cadillac STS isn’t a standout for looks, but you’ll appreciate the way it drives. The 2011 Infiniti M pairs beauty with a beastly V-8 engine—and at last, Infiniti makes its marque in a class full of winners.
