Handling Ranked 2019 BMW 5 Series 540i Sedan RWD better.
"BMW had a nice ride but seemed tp have a drag when you let off the gas. I was told by salesman that was regenerative braking. The BMW doesnt coast like a normal car. However, the BMW seemed to have a lower center of gravity and maybe would be faster through sharp turns."

"The cadillac has sharp styling and the front of the vehicle is proportionate and elegant. The bmw is ok looking but not as nice as the Cadillac."
