Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The weapons-grade M5 is a powerful piece of German artillery from BMW’s iconic M division. It sports a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 with 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. The M5 faithful will lament the lost manual gearbox and unfamiliar all-wheel-drive system, but this Bimmer has a high-tech drivetrain that can disconnect the front wheels for pure rear-drive personality.

Pros
Astounding acceleration,
rediscovered involvement that doesn’t negatively affect refinement and luxury.

Cons
Stiff ride in Sport mode,
fake engine soundtrack remains,
the stick shift is dead.

The 2018 BMW M5 is equal parts performance monster and luxury cruiser.

Pros

Sharp handling
Spacious interior
Wonderful engine noises
Grip of AWD

Cons
No more manual tranmission
Six-figure price
Still pretty heavy

The 2018 BMW M5 is a four-door, five-seat sedan. It comes in only one primary configuration, and is equipped with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produces 600 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. The engine is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends the power to all four wheels.

PROS
Sharper handling from revised suspension
Boffo V8's prodigious thrust
All-wheel drive increases performance capability
Premium cabin packed with features

CONS
Daunting number of powertrain and suspension settings
Stiff on bumpy roads, even in Comfort mode

The 2018 Cadillac CTS-V scorches the earth, and leaves the E63 and RS7 with some burn marks.

Pros
Shocking acceleration
Beautifully composed at speed
Lively, connected steering
Brilliantly balanced

Cons
Brash looks aren’t for everyone
Poor IIHS crash-test scores
Back seat lacks rivals’ space

By:

PROS
One of the most powerful sedans on the road
Far cheaper than comparably powered performance sedans
Ultra-sophisticated suspension delivers world-class ride and handling
Superior support from optional sport seats

CONS
Ride may be too rough for some
Tech interface may frustrate
Small trunk
Less luxurious cabin than those of competitors
