2016 Cadillac CTS vs. Its Competition

2016 Cadillac CTS
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

The 2016 Cadillac CTS competes toe-to-toe in a segment of all-stars.

The Audi A6 and A7 look fantastic and offer lots of technology, including Google Earth mapping.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes in a variety of body styles, with an even wider variety of available powertrains.

The BMW 5-Series has gotten a bit heavy in its middle age, but offers a variety of body styles and plenty of power.

There's also the Lexus GS with its F Sport edition, which finally drives nearly as well as the Germans.

And, there's there Infiniti Q70 sedan, which offers excellent driving dynamics and a gorgeous interior–who wouldn't want silver-polished wood, after all?
