Is the 2021 Cadillac CT5-V a BETTER sport sedan than a BMW M340i?

Joylandi 17-May, 2021
The NEW CT5-V has a bit of different performance twist from Cadillac. Normally this would be the top trim but it actually replaces the V Sport from the previous generation. On the outside you will find some V-series touches from the grill, wheels, brakes and rear bumper. On the inside you will be greeted to a full leather interior, sport steering wheel and 10in infotainment system. Under the hood is a 3.0L twin-turbo V6 that pumps out 360HP \u0026 is mated to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Is the 2021 Cadillac CT5-V a BETTER sport sedan than a BMW M340i?

  • A part of me wants to see what a new Cadillac supercar would look like

  • Raiti, they are femaling all these vehicles, I think the last 9 yrs. They need to man up! the back seat of a car should seat 3 full-sized adults, at least 6 feet tall, esp if we are paying 100K!. Thats why I like watching your channel, cause u are tall, and I'm tall. I'm 5"11, I can gage whether I'd be comfortable. They need to restructure the interior of these cars. The cupholders, in the rear, should be in the doors, secure, tight, and fit. U look at the range rovers 2012 and previous, they have a masculine front end. In the new design 2013, more round and female.

  • Brownies interior 🤎🤎🤎 😍😘👍👌👊

  • Nice Looking Car designed 👍 woow 😎 very nice ENGINE 👍👍 V8 Engine it's a Huge Engine that can be Upgradeable 🙏 . i ❤️ V8 engine sound, really Awesome 😎 👍

  • Cadillac ruined the brand its a shame

  • Grill looks like Acura

  • the wheels look tame n base for a performance trim, one of those rare times i'd go aftermarket on the wheels

  • I’m so happy they are bringing back the true “V” brand back ... #savethemanuals

  • This is a nice job Cadillac! You seem to have really done your homework and put it into production! Except for the notch in the C-pillar window, I like everything I see. Btw, notice how this front grille is present but still tasteful and uniquely Cadillac, unlike the Genesis uniquely goofy grille. I. have AMG’s and an Audi, but I’d give this a look for a daily driver sports sedan. Not a chance for you Genesis. Oh, and bring back the sport wagon Cadillac!

    • I am so glad that you like this one Pete!

  • I think cadillac and lincoln is actually starting to appeal to a younger audience, i see a long of younger people driving them now because it was always old people cars

  • Of course not

  • Another great car review on yet another beautiful car. That white looks awesome too! Love the seats & body. The grill and headlights are nice too. Thanks buddy!

  • Nice review ... thank you!!! 🙏🙏🙏

  • the m340i is a way better car. Its better sounding, faster, better handling and better comfort. The ct5-v is the worst sports sedan you can buy in its segment. The g70, c43, s4, m340i and is500 are all better cars.

  • I’ll take this over the rest of the competition

  • I love the sound its a beast Ct 5 love dope love to see this in dark blue r dark green

  • Wow a car that looks more expensive than it really is . Not bad . Cadillac is finally making up to date nice vehicles again . They still aren’t that fast but wow the whole car is really luxurious for $63 k !

    • @Raiti's Rides yeah I saw one in person the other day before I saw this review and I thought that lower break light above the diffuser was after market at first I also noticed how big that screen really is and in person that car looks great . The camera doesn’t show the true presence of that car for sure .

    • I am so glad that you like this one.

  • Hey Joe, I loved the camera angle you used on this review and the road you chose to drive. It really gave a true feel for the car vs taking it out on the highway or busy residential roads. Well done! More test drives like this in these higher performance vehicles please.

  • Looks good but 13s 1/4 mile shouldn’t have a V. 😢

  • I'm going to be a cars salesman for Cadillac in Bahrain next month. Thanks for the review

  • this is my car that i been eyeballing. such a gorgeous car. Cadillac has always been apart of the family. used to help my g pa clean his deville. i think i may pull the trigger this year

  • Rear door window looks like Nissan bs. Not thrilled Cadillac. 😭

  • The woozy macrame laparoscopically breathe because dipstick willy delay during a unable meteorology. normal, vague order

  • I'm glad Caddy finally doesn't have the wheels/tires looking tiny vs the rest of the car. However the infotainment center... not really feeling. Not luxurious at all

  • This vehicle has a longer wheelbase then those compared to. Dimensions of this vehicle compares to Mercedes E-class BMW 5 etc etc

  • Man its an all around beautiful car with it was a manual transmission

  • Sweet car. Wish it had a manual…would be a good replacement for my 2015 Chevy SS if only it had a manual transmission.

  • I almost thought he was gonna give us a review without mentioning his height... I was wrong 🤦🏻‍♂️

  • Looks laggy off the start.

  • Sounds good but I’d have to go with the M340I.

  • This car looks so good in red you can't take your eyes off of it.

  • No rear a/c controls...tisk, tisk.

  • No nav on the cockpit display?

  • Cool sun roof!

  • Heath bar bro? Ever had a score? Those rock! Dam, do they still make those?

  • 4.9 seconds? 😳 what’s with these cars? That is slow for the power numbers by todays standards. This is why Caddy is outsold by euros.

  • No way....update that V.....fools!

  • Imma b honest it kinda looks like a honda accord....

  • This is a beautiful cadillac, but im a fan of the blackwing edition

  • Such a awesome car! Got mine on order but plant is closed till end of June so will likely turn into a 2022 V after the Blackwings are made in July. Great review 👍

  • I’m not a GM fan ...I feel like this is a dressed up Malibu lol but it’s pretty nice and for being a V it’s not a shabby price compared to the others starting in the 100k range.

  • I hate that the large sedan is going away. Love this design but I feel like it's on the small side.

  • I don't know why in modern car design the hood doesn't come all the way. It would look cleaner.

  • I have no fucking idea what he's talking about when he wants to put food everywhere in the car. So Obnoxious

  • uzfire.info/camera/video/d6ObrWOOk6eZjp0

  • it looks like a 2021 honda accord.

  • This car so sexy , I’m thinking about getting rid of my new car I just got a couple months ago.

  • Lori KILLED it with the cinematography!!!

  • This may be my next car. Great review Joe, but if you had to pick between two, the CT5-V or the M340i? p.s. I note that both you and Matt Farrah observed slow downshifts…really haven’t heard anyone else complain about that…I wonder if it isn’t some issue with this particular car?

  • I’d take an m340i over this anyday

  • I LOVE the sound of the CT5-V, not only sounds better than muscle car garbage, but even has an electric car tone to it, just amazing!!! Thank you Joe and Lori, thank you Cadillac. ON THROTTLE!!!

  • For $63k this is a hard pass. Rather have an m340i xdrive at that price point will be quicker to 60 mph by almost a second which is a massive difference in speed.

  • 63K haha

  • That little extra hp comment is spot on. the ct6 3.0 tt is like 404 hp and 400 trq. Not sure why GM couldn't match that for the CT5 V.

  • Why are these cars so heavy

  • The exterior is nice but Cadillac interiors are dooky!! With the exception of the new escalade

  • 14 Heath bars....sheesh.....i do like the sour apple Jolly Rancher though probably better for "ON THROTTLE"

  • Type S review this weekend?

  • Sweet car🥰Bitcoin is the future investing in it now is the wisest thing to do now especially the current rise

    • Mr Dave Scott has brought me out of the wrenches and to a better living through trading options, I encourage newbies to trade with him

    • When someone is straight forward and good at what he does, people will always speak for them. For me I would say give Mr Dave Scott of financial education a try and you be happy you did

    • Trade with him and remember to always share your testimony with others

    • When I saw testimonies all over the place I thought it was all made up stories till I was convinced and gave it a try and honestly I don't regret the move I made because I invested in a big way

    • He's not like other brokers that will start telling you stories and excuses why they trade didn't go well after collecting your money

  • Thank you! this is literally my dream car!

  • Could the steal the rs7 design anymore lol, guess imitation is the best flattery.

  • FINALLY! I’ve been waiting for this review for so long. This car is very interesting and makes you wonder if it’s worth it over the competitors.

    • I forgot to ask CT5-V or Stinger GT2?

  • GM left the European market in 2017, after Opel and Vauxhall’s ownerships were transferred to PSA and now Stellantis. So no more Cadillacs in Europe, we get Citroën, Peugeot, DS, Opel and Vauxhall (Opel in mainland Europe and Ireland, Vauxhall in the UK).

  • Should try launch control

  • That motor in the CT4 would be awesome!

  • 4.9 0-60 is so weak for this!

  • Only elderly people who don’t know any better but Cadillacs.

  • This seems to be the V badge for people who want a comfortable DD but with the extra oomph for long stretches and twisty bits. Cadillac has been off my radar (outside of IMSA and the Blackwings) but as a daily this has me intrigued.

  • GM always had shit cameras, what's this dude smoking haha

  • My 17' SS Camaro 6 speed 455HP 455Tq. V8 gets about the same gas MPG! 😂🤣

  • Id choose the Genesis any day over this - GM cant do luxury - this looks like a Chevy interior with some leather

  • Nice job! Wonderfully done ... thanks!

    • Hey Craig! I am so glad that you liked this one.

  • Caddy isn’t bad, but no way in hell im giving up my M340i for it!

  • That is so true. You can literally look at your Cadillac all day long

  • Looks better than the M3! I would have to go for the blackwing 4 to get the manual though. Or of course the blackwing 5 to get the manual and the V8!

  • I'm always thankful to see new rides here first. Other car reviews put me to sleep. I'm a huge fan of the original CTS-V. Not sure how I feel about this one yet.

    • Thanks for being so supportive and letting me share my car passion with you!

  • Nice review and professional grade camera work! I just saw one of these a couple days ago. Very sharp looking car, even looks better in person. Thanks for your insightful reviews of the various cars out there!

  • I can tell that a lot of the features are shared with the C8. Are you sure that this car doesn't have a Launch Control Mode? Nice content dude !!!

    • Thanks for letting me share it with you! Not that I saw with my time with it!

  • I thought ct 5 is equal to 5 series

  • Y no led fog lights also i remember they replace the Cadillac Catera

  • Lol black wing is pretty much unobtanium. They destroyed the v brand. Garbage CT5

  • CTS looked better. This is just weird.

    • Thanks for sharing you thoughts on this one.

  • Absolutely beautiful....but how could they give this car as a "V" less power than the older ats-v? I get that the blackwing is the new top dog trim but they could've put 450hp and 450 lb-ft in this and that would've been the perfect step before........668hp!

  • I really enjoy your videos, but are you exceeding the legal speed limit when you are doing these driving reviews? That would not be cool.

    • Wth is wrong with go over speed limit??

    • But are there legal speed limits on the roads you use for test drives, and if so, do you stick to these?

    • I am sorry on how the review is interpreted.

  • Is that fake engine sound? Ugh! Great torque though... Infiniti Redsport would also be competition.

  • One of those wingmirror cameras not working?

  • Cadillac CT5 it's not the same segment as BMW series 3 witch is compact car. BMW series 5 is in the same segment. CT5-V vs BMW M540i

  • BMW M340i over the CT5-V easily. The CT5-V is slower than the Q50 Red Sport.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one.

  • Only HALF a zonk, Joe must really love this caddy!

  • I like it.

    • I am so glad that I could share it with you!

  • CTS-V was so much more powerful was it not? This competes with the ats-v I feel like. So confused

  • Still dont see why the name change was Necessary V-Sport i think is still a much better name that makes sense

  • Quite nice 👌👍definitely anticipating the black wing

  • Car designers cant just make holes evrywhere. If you put air vent on those, its going to affect aerodynamics and increase C.D. Hence some manufaccturers have radiator vents close and open automatically to reduse drag.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one.

  • Where is your zonk score list? Similar to Doug’s DougScore lol

  • Thx again for the great review, i was waiting for this car. Hope not too long for the black wing review by the best honest channel on UZfire.

    • You are so very welcome! We really appreciate your support!

  • Another GRT8 video from Raiti’s Rides

    • Thanks for taking the time to say that and for your support!

  • Lori is the best

  • Alpha platform, still insane!! Can’t wait to see your blackwing review (better be the manual haha)!!!
