The single-trim Cadillac CTS-V is a true luxury sports sedan and somehow manages to emphasize both sports and luxury. Drivers and passengers will find all the features expected in a $60,000 Cadillac, and they all come together very well.

The standard features list on the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V is long and enviable. According to ConsumerGuide, "features include steering-linked headlamps and keyless entry and ignition," while other reviews read by TheCarConnection.com detail additional high-tech standard features. Motor Trend reports that the Cadillac CTS-V comes with "all the usual CTS goodies, such as the 40-gig hard-drive entertainment system, pop-up sat-nav, Bluetooth capability, and Bose digital surround audio."

Navigation, Bluetooth, and a built-in hard drive are just the beginning of the high-tech features on the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V.

The optional features on the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V aren't numerous, since the car comes pretty loaded already, but some are very highly recommended in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com. In particular, Cars.com says "you'll pay somewhere north of $2,000 for optional Recaro sport seats, which are higher in overall quality" and offer a much improved driving experience in the Cadillac CTS-V. Autoblog reviewers "recommend opting for the 14-way Recaros—you won't be sorry," a sentiment echoed unanimously by other reviewers. The other options on the 2009 Cadillac CTS-V, according to Cars.com, "include suedelike material on the steering wheel and shift knob...for a couple hundred bucks." Motor Trend adds that the available Performance Pack includes "metal-faced pedals" and Cadillac's new "Performance Traction Management."
