In rear-wheel drive guise, the CTS Sedan and Coupe score fuel economy ratings of 18/27 mpg for both the 3.0-liter (sedan only) and 3.6-liter engines when paired with the automatic transmission. Opting for the manual cuts those figures to 16/26 mpg. Going all-wheel drive returns nearly identical fuel economy figures: 18/27 mpg with the larger V-6, 18/26 mpg with the smaller engine.

The Sport Wagon also returns similar figures, with the 3.0-liter engine rating 18/27 mpg and the 3.6-liter V-6 returning 18/26 mpg.

While those figures won't break the bank, they're on the lower end of cars in the class.


Conclusion

The 2012 Cadillac CTS line's gas mileage just isn't all that green.

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.
