The 2008 Cadillac STS has comfortable front seats, but the backseat doesn’t have much more room than in Cadillac’s own CTS.

Automotive.com reports seats are "refreshingly supportive, for a Cadillac, without being overly firm," with the arm- and headrests "boosting the comfort factor a couple notches." Cars.com agrees: "the leather upholstery is both supportive and well-cushioned," with "plenty of range for different-sized drivers." Of the front row, ConsumerGuide notes "good headroom and legroom," but adds "some testers feel hemmed-in by the wide center console and high windowsills." However, "the standard power tilt and telescopic steering wheel helps dial in a comfortable driving stance." The back row is another story; ConsumerGuide calls it "disappointing for a car this large."

Regarding storage space, ConsumerGuide reports that "trunk space is unexceptional for STS's exterior size...a small opening limits the size of items that can be loaded." Inside the cabin, "small-item storage is limited to a smallish center console and less-than-generous glove box."

Overall, Cars.com finds the Cadillac STS interior "comfortable and lined with respectable materials," but notes "execution leaves a lot to be desired," adding that "most of the flaws could have been fixed with a modest freshening, something on par with what the outside received." ConsumerGuide says 2008 Cadillac STS "interior materials quality is good when compared to domestic-branded premium sedans but falls just shy of the standards set by German and Japanese rivals."

ConsumerGuide also notes that "road and wind noise are both well muted....the new V6 sounds refined when accelerating and is otherwise quieter than the engine it replaces."

Conclusion

The 2008 Cadillac STS doesn’t lead its pack in either rear-seat room or in high-dollar surroundings.

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.
