The 3 Series sedan has been redesigned for 2019, but the wagon carries over largely unchanged

PROS

CONS
Storage for small personal items is limited

Although a lot of car shoppers are gravitating more toward crossovers these days, luxury sedans remain essential vehicles for many manufacturers. The 2019 Cadillac CTS is indicative of that, and it features traits Cadillac wants to be known for: unmistakable design, sporty driving characteristics and modern in-car technology.

Pros
All versions have precise handling
V-Sport engine offers outstanding acceleration

Cons
Overly firm ride quality on some versions
Rear-seat room is smaller than some competitors'
Touch-panel center console controls are distracting
Base engine lacks refinement
