d) car, the gap in capability among the leading contenders in the main luxury segments, which are compact sedans, sport utilities, performance coupes are
e) car, however, the gap in the main luxury segments - compact sedans, sport utilities, performance coupes – and capability among the leading contenders are

The verb (ARE) in main clause matches with the plural noun "The ride quality, handling precision, and power available" but the verb (ARE) in dependent doesn't matches with Singular subject "the gap in capability". So we can discard option A, D & E.

Both the options B & C are grammatically correct but option C changes the tone & meaning of the sentence by using AND. Author wants to compare (or emphasize) how two segments are similar yet different. Thus option B is correct

The ride quality, handling precision, and power available from a BMW 3 series or a Cadillac CTS-V coupe aren't to be found in a run-of-the-mill mass market car, but the gap in capability between the leading contenders in the main luxury segments — compact sedans, sport utilities, performance coupes— are becoming narrower each year.

A violates the idiom "between X and Y", and both D and E have a subject verb agreement issue.

b) car, but the gap in capability among the leading contenders in the main luxury segments — compact sedans, sport utilities, performance coupes— is
c) car, and capability gap among the leading contenders in the main luxury segments — compact sedans, sport utilities, performance coupes— is

If you say the "capability gap" the word capability acts as an adjective, and the resulting noun phrase does not make a lot of sense. Moreover the two clauses that make the overall sentence are supposed to show a contrast, so the connector "but" is the correct one.
So C is out.

A is out because Between is used for one than one.

D is out because 2 clauses are not connected properly.
E distort the meaning.

Between B and C. C does not contrast which is intended meaning for mentioning 2 luxary cars name before and then mentioning other cars are not far behind.
