TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 BMW 5-Series pushes all the right buttons for mid-size luxury shoppers. And there are a lot of them. The 2022 Cadillac CT5 comes in a variety of sporty flavors, now topped by the most-powerful Cadillac ever, the CT5-V Blackwing. Made as a sedan, wagon, coupe, and convertible with four different powertrains, the 2021 Mercedes E-Class has wide appeal.
