Cadillac CTS
2017
Cadillac CTS 2017 sedan Trim Shown: 2017 Luxury sedan AWD Automatic
The CTS is a midsized luxury sedan with a firm, absorbent ride and precise handling that crowns it as one of the sportiest cars in the class. But as satisfying as it is to drive, the CTS can also be frustrating, partly because of the overly complex Cue infotainment system. The cabin is luxurious, with impressive material quality. But rear-seat room is relatively snug, and the trunk is a bit small. Neither the four-cylinder turbo nor the 3.6-liter V6 is as refined as the best in class. The high-end V-Sport is a treat to drive, with effortless thrust. The high-performance CTS-V gives any $100,000 German super-sedan a run for its money, thanks to the 640-hp, 6.2-liter supercharged V8 from the Corvette Z06 and trackworthy handling and braking.

Cadillac CTS 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Sedan
In our testing, we found the 2014 CTS delivers an inviting blend of comfort, quietness, and a sporty driving performance. The world-class cabin offers excellent fit and finish, acres of padding, and sumptuous genuine leather. The front seats are very comfortable, but the flush-mounted, touch-activated switches are an aggravation. The best blend of features and price is the Luxury Collection trim package with real leather, a folding rear seat, HID headlights, forward-collision warning, blind spot monitoring, and heated/ventilated front seats.

Cadillac CTS 2013 Trim Shown: 2013 Sedan
A notable improvement over the model it replaces, this version of the CTS competes toe-to-toe with some of the best imported sport sedans. A taut suspension and excellent steering give the CTS agile handling, with a firm yet compliant ride. The interior is significantly improved, with the adoption of higher quality materials. The engine and transmission deliver strong performance and refinement. Rear visibility is limited by the thick rear pillar and high deck lid. A wagon version was added for 2010. The V8-powered CTS-V could be had with each bodystyle.

Cadillac CTS 2007 Trim Shown: 2007 Sedan
The CTS has sports sedan handling and a firm but supple ride. We also like its quick acceleration. However, the car lacks some features we expect in this price range, including a telescoping steering wheel, adjustable lumbar support, and an illuminated glove compartment. The cabin is quiet, but some controls are confusing. The base 3.2-liter engine was replaced with a 2.8-liter V6 for 2005, and a 3.6-liter V6 became an optional upgrade. The sporty CTS-V packed a 5.7-liter V8 and a six-speed manual.
