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

By: 
edmunds.com

Pros
More power,
sharper handling,
no real downside.

Cons
$7300 price premium,
modest improvements over the already-stupendous standard M5.

By:

Goodbye standard M5, hello M5 Competition; shortly the only version you'll be able to buy in Australia. Will the bump in performance be worth the jump in price?

Pros
Sharper chassis
Huge fun
Still pretty civilised

Cons
Feels its size on the track
Lacks the rear-drive purity of its predecessors

By:

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

By: 
edmunds.com

Comfortable front seats

Shows its age in a few ways

Very thirsty
Expensive with options
