The 2018 Cadillac CTS ranked #6 in Luxury Midsize Cars. Currently the Cadillac CTS has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 43 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Punchy twin-turbo V6 and supercharged V8 engines
Athletic handling
State-of-the-art tech features

Cons
Cramped back seats
Unrefined four-cylinder base engine
Low gas mileage estimates
Below-average predicted reliability

The midsize luxury sedan segment is packed with great choices. To succeed, the 2018 Cadillac CTS can't just copy the more popular German or Japanese models. Instead, Cadillac has focused on giving buyers unmistakable design, sporty driving characteristics and modern in-car technology.

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

CONS
Rear seat room is smaller than for some competitors
Touch panel center console controls are distracting
Base engine lacks refinement

The 2018 Cadillac CTS puts German rivals on handling notice.

Pros
Stunning sharp lines, sleek cockpit
A no-excuses rival for German handling
Hugely satisfying VSport model
Great 8-speed automatic

Cons
Well, there’s no wagon...
CUE interface ready for Version 2.0
V-6 doesn’t outrun turbo-4 by a lot

Other than the shuffling of some minor trim items, the 2018 Volvo S60 carries over unchanged.

PROS
Good balance between a comfortable ride quality and sporty handling
Excellent safety scores and available advanced safety features
Available extended-wheelbase model offers extra legroom

CONS
Fuel economy for high-performance engine might not live up to expectations
Standard-wheelbase sedan has less rear legroom than competitors

By: 
edmunds.com

The 2018 Volvo S60 is a pleasant car, but rivals and even the rest of Volvo’s lineup have left it in the dust.

Pros
Great safety scores
Broad lineup
Strong acceleration
Exceptionally comfortable seats
High-buck feel inside

Cons
Bland, dated styling
Old-school infotainment
Even at its best, not all that fun
Light on personality versus Volvo’s latest
