2020 Cadillac CT5 vs. Its Competition

2020 Cadillac CT5-V
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

Traditional luxury mid-size rivals from Mercedes-Benz, BMW, and Audi dominate attention thanks to Thanksgiving-sized helpings of tech, leather, and safety features.

The BMW 5-Series offers a staggering breadth of powertrain options, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers a staggering array of high-definition screens inside.

The Audi A6 may offer advanced driver assist features in the U.S., pending regulations.

The Lexus ES is the relaxed pick, and most fuel-efficient in hybrid configurations.

The Volvo S90 is generously sized and elegant inside, but seemingly on the back foot compared to newer competitors.
