Cadillac CTS Overview

The CTS has always been a fun-to-drive luxury sedan. But the third-generation ups the ante, making the CTS more BMW than BMW itself. Eager handling crowns it one of the sportiest in the class. Packed with equipment, the poshly-finished cabin attends to luxury duties along with a reasonably compliant ride. But as satisfying as it is to drive, the CTS manages to be wildly frustrating. Much of the blame goes to the overly complex CUE controls. Rear-seat room is snug for this class and the trunk is relatively small. Powertrain refinement isn't quite up to the best in class either unless you get the high end Vsport version. Most folks should go for the AWD Luxury edition.
