The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.3
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V is arguably the greatest American performance sedan ever, and we will miss it dearly when it's discontinued after 2019. The 2019 BMW 5-Series is a luxury mid-size sedan with a historic name but a bright future ahead.
