While automatic is available in both the Cadillac vehicle and the BMW vehicle, we know you will want to stick with the manual driving experience these two sports cars offer. So, which is best? If a simple, clean handling experience is what you are after, the Cadillac CT5 Blackwing offers an engaging, six-speed manual ride without the need for excessive adjustments.

Drivers of the BMW M3 report that, while holding its own in handling, this model requires more drive mode adjusting than they care to make, and the dashboard tends to overwhelm and under-deliver.
