TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 BMW M5 sedan is a high-performance luxury car without compromise and few rivals. The 2020 Cadillac CT5 mid-size luxury sedan offers a new look—but not a new idea—for the automaker in a competitive class. With two new engine options, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class reminds us that life is good at the top.
