SAFETY | 8 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

Four stars frontal for the driver, five stars in all other tests

Top "good" ratings in all tests

The Cadillac CTS got one star short of a perfect score in the federal government’s frontal crash test but aced all other tests with flying colors.

When shoppers compare the CTS, they’ll find that all the expected safety features are there, including electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, side curtain airbags, and front side airbags. Some models offer rear side airbags as an option, though not on the CTS.

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.
