Cadillac’s flagship CT6 is an impressive luxury car. Plush, roomy, quick, agile and high-tech. The CT6’s stellar Road Test score certainly ranks it among the best sedans. Our qualms revolve around a few ergonomic issues.
The CT6 slots in between two defined sedan classes. It’s bigger than the premium midsized sedans with which it’s similar in price -- including the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series, and Mercedes-Benz E-Class -- yet smaller than ultra luxury flagships such as the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series, and Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
It’s interesting that BMW lately seems bent on dialing back the sporty driving characteristics of its models, yet recent Cadillacs drive more like the fun, exuberant machines we’d normally associate with cars from Bavaria. Belying its size and plush nature, the CT6 is capable of carving a mountain road with confidence.
