2022 BMW 5-Series vs. Its Competition

2022 BMW 5-Series
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The updated E-Class offers the most luxurious cabin, and its technology catches up to the Audi A6.

Like the A6, the redesigned Genesis G80 doesn’t handle as sharply as the 5-Series, but its design sets it apart from German homogenization.

For a pure performance sedan, check out the 668-hp Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing with a manual transmission.

A relative value, the Acura TLX has good power but less panache.
