Comfort, fluidity, confidence, grace, balance, power, agility, style…
These are the attributes any model wishing to be taken seriously in the mid-size luxury sport sedan segment should possess. For this, enthusiasts have BMW to thank, and for this manufacturers have always had BMW to chase. The BMW 5 Series is easily the benchmark by which all other rear-drive six-cylinder luxury sport sedans have always been measured.
And for good reason, BMW’s cars have always exhibited all of those qualities and more. This segment of the market gets more and more competitive every year, and when a new entry emerges, the eyes of motoring scribes everywhere turn to see if one universally recognized question is answered.
Does it measure up to the vaunted BMW sedan?
And so, ever since the introduction of the first Cadillac CTS back in 2002, (as a 2003 model) Cadillac has hungrily pursued the BMW. With this, the all-new 2014 Cadillac CTS vSport, the company may well have just pulled alongside.
