2021 Cadillac CT4 vs. Its Competition

2021 Cadillac CT4
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

The stakes are high when it comes to small luxury sedans with a decidedly sporty bent.

The BMW 3-Series is a relatively fresh design with terrific powertrains.

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class has voluptuous looks and a comfortable ride.

And don’t forget the Audi A4, which although up for a redesign soon still dazzles with its tech and roomy back seat.

The Volvo S60 strikes an appealing balance between style and features, while the Genesis G70 is an appealing third-party choice that should definitely make your shopping list.
