Luxurious; spacious; powerful engines; good handling; packed with new technology
The exterior design language of the Cadillac CTS is sharp, and swept back headlights flow over the front fenders while a more aggressive front fascia and grille with an updated company crest let people know that Cadillac means business.
There are four different engine choices for the CTS in 2016. A 2.0L turbocharged four promises up to 30 mpg on the highway while still making a very impressive 268 hp. The mid-level engine, a 3.6L V6, produces 335 hp for 2016 thanks to some engine management tweaks. A turbocharged version of that V6 makes 420 horses for the Vsport models, while the most powerful engine Cadillac offers in the high-performance CTS-V is a supercharged V8 displacing 6.2L and makes an astonishing 640 hp. This engine places the CTS-V in the company of European sports sedans like the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.
The four engines and several different trim levels combine to give buyers plenty of options when it comes to configuring the CTS. All-wheel drive is available with either of the smaller engines, while the turbocharged V6 and V8 send power to the rear wheels only.
Standard equipment on the CTS includes an 11-speaker sound system with satellite radio, a CUE infotainment system with an 8-inch screen, 4G LTE connectivity, in-car WiFi capability and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay phone integration systems. Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control, keyless access and ignition, 8-way power adjustable front seats, one year of OnStar, a rear parking sensors and camera and 17-inch wheels are also all standard.
More expensive trim levels add features such as 18-inch wheels, leather seating surfaces, HID headlights, a navigation system, a Bose 13-speaker sound system, heated and cooled seats and a heated steering wheel, 20-way adjustable high-performance front seats, a heads up display and a lane departure warning system.
The CTS-V offers as much performance as has ever been offered in a Cadillac sedan. Besides the incredible engine and 8-speed transmission, the V also includes an electronic differential, Magnetic Ride Control, Brembo performance brakes and 19" painted aluminum wheels.
Safety in the CTS is handled by several airbags as well as anti-lock brakes, traction control and stability control. Optional safety equipment includes a rear view camera, a blind spot warning system and forward collision preparation and automatic braking.
The CTS gets a few refinements for 2016, including a new 8-speed transmission and fuel-saving start-stop engine technology. The luxury mid-size also gains a standard rearview camera and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in the CUE infotainment system.
The Cadillac CTS is a mid-sized luxury sedan in competition with the 5-series BMW and the Mercedes Benz C-Class. Cadillac is priced and engineered to compete directly with the competition from Germany, and its excellent chassis delivers, some say, a superior driving experience. Cadillac's styling seems more forward than the competition and equipment levels are extremely comprehensive.
