It's Happening: 2016 Cadillac CTS-V Vs. BMW M5 Vs. Mercedes E63 AMG

Comparison

Has America finally built the German super sedan beater?

This is the comparison many have long been clamoring for. For years, a couple of decades in fact, Germany built the best all-around, high-performance luxury sedans. Stuffing a V10 into a 5 Series? Done, courtesy of BMW. The sound of a supercar in an E-Class? Also accomplished. Needless to say, Cadillac has some great expectations here. Its previous generation CTS-V did a commendable job but it was still lagging in several areas, such as refinement and handling.

But the new 2016 CTS-V has supposedly addressed all of its predecessor’s weaknesses. And according to Cadillac, it’s done the same to its German rivals. Powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 with 640 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque, the new CTS-V has got more ponies than the Mercedes 5.5-liter twin-turbo V8 as well as the BMW M-series 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8. Styling wise, they all look great, but it’s clear Cadillac went the extra mile to make the CTS-V a design standout. We particularly dig that functional hood scoop and those carbon fiber exterior add-ons. But what do you prefer? Which of these three is your ideal super sedan? Let the debate begin.
