The Car Connection Expert Review

The new CTS can keep up with Mercedes and BMW competitors without mimicking them, and boasts some of the top tech features in its class.

TheCarConnection.com’s car experts read all the competitive reviews on the new Cadillac CTS sedan to produce this conclusive review, and to give enthusiastic approval of the new CTS. TheCarConnection.com also drove the car to be able to give you an expert opinion on the car, and to help you figure out the truth where other car reviews might differ.

The CTS sport sedan is Cadillac’s entry-level vehicle in the United States. It was introduced in the 2003 model year, and this year gets thoroughly revised exterior styling and an entirely new interior, along with a new direct-injected 3.6-liter V-6 hitting 304 horsepower. A 263-hp version of the engine remains an option, and all-wheel drive is newly available across the lineup.

As part of its completely revamped interior, which boasts high-quality upholstery and trim a step better than those usually found in this class, the CTS now offers an advanced Infotainment system with the ability to rip CDs or record and play back radio broadcasts, and its navigation system now incorporates the XM NavTraffic feature.

Redsigned in 2008, the CTS is a sharp looking, eager car. I would have given the highest rating for "exterior/interior" if not for a few considerable shortcomings: the seats are too minimalist. At 6 ft 195lbs... + More »
