Expert Quotes:

Get the Recaros, which incidentally have more adjustable bladders than Rosie, too.
Edmunds' Inside Line

Put the car into reverse and the navigation screen rises quickly from the dash and the rearview image appears immediately.
Automobile Magazine

we love the Corvette-style hidden pushbutton door handles
Autoblog

the seats are heated and ventilated to boot
Consumer Guide

The Recaros are pricey at $3,400 for the pair, but we think it's money well spent in a world-class performance car.
Edmunds

The 2011 Cadillac CTS-V is offered as a single model, pretty much including everything that's expected in a traditional luxury car, plus a few additional tech features.

Xenon HID headlamps, Adaptive Forward Lighting, ultrasonic rear parking assist, rain-sensing wipers, heated power front seats, and dual-zone climate control are all there. So is a surround-sound audio system with a 40GB hard drive, USB connectivity, DVD compatibility, and a Bluetooth interface.

Upgrade to the navigation system and you get one of the best screens we've tested; the sharp color screen functions as a radio display when stowed but extends upward when using nav functions. It also incorporates XM NavTraffic to provide live traffic information on maps and dynamic rerouting. Cadillac also provides a place to put the keyfob for the handy EZ key entry system, which can be set to automatically unlock the doors as you approach.

For 2011, the CTS-V, like all Cadillacs, gets Cadillac Premium Care Maintenance, which covers all oil changes, inspections, and other scheduled maintenance for four years or 50,000 miles. A rear vision camera and heated steering wheel are newly available, and OnStar has been upgraded.

Conclusion

The 2011 CTS-V packs in all the excellent audio and navigation systems, the long list of luxury features, and adds some serious performance upgrades to go with its thrilling track-ready performance.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
