2017 Cadillac CT6 vs. Its Competition

2017 Cadillac CT6 Plug-In Hybrid
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Cadillac's gambit—to once again be the standard of the world—means taking on the world's finest executive luxury sedans with the new CT6.

Jaguar's XJ did aluminum body when it wasn't as widespread; it has a daring look and thrilling performance, even if it's a little lean on back-seat head room.

Audi's A8 is gaining in appeal in this niche with twin-turbo V-8 power.

Finally, the Lexus LS offers true luxury with a more conservative Japanese style.

The S-Class is probably the finest car Mercedes has ever built.

It has a fantastic interior and variety in drivetrains, from AMG versions to plug-in hybrids.

The BMW 7-Series is a close challenger to the Benz, with worldly appeal and luxuriant custom-trim interiors.
