2014-2019
2014 Redesign Year
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. The high-end V-Sport is a treat to drive, with effortless thrust. Changes for 2015 included a standard built-in WiFi hotspot. Updates for 2016 included a new eight-speed automatic transmission, a 335-hp 3.6-liter V6, 360-degree camera, and the addition of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to the infotainment system. 2019 was the final year for the CTS.

2008-2013
2008 Redesign Year
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.

2003-2007
2003 Redesign Year
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.
