With the addition of the CTS Sport Wagon, Cadillac's touched up the standard features on the lineup for 2010.

The base sedan comes with power doors, locks, and mirrors; cruise control; automatic dual-zone climate control; a power driver seat; a tilt and telescoping steering wheel; an AM/FM/CD/XM audio system with auxiliary jack; an air filtra-tion system; and automatic headlamps. Base cars come with vinyl seats, a Euro-like touch that's disappointing. The Sport Wagon adds a power tailgate to that list. From that point, Edmunds describes a Luxury package that includes more standard features such as leather seating; heated seats; Bluetooth; a CD changer; and ambient lighting. The Performance package, they note, adds stan-dard 18-inch wheels, the FE2 suspension, and high-intensity discharge head-lamps. The same package on the bigger V-6 nets standard surround sound and a USB/iPod interface.

The major options include a panoramic sunroof; Bluetooth connectivity; ventilated seats; a pet cover for the wagon's cargo hold; and 18- or 19-inch wheels and tires, to go with different suspension packages and all-weather or summer tires. In particular, reviewers note the CTS' advanced, easy-to-use entertainment system for its hard-drive music storage and a memory function that stores radio broadcasts. Kelley Blue Book points out that the sound system "will download and store your CD collection and operate your iPod from the pop-up touch screen," and CNET lauds the "tabbed structure" and improved screen resolution of the Infotainment system, commenting that the 40GB built-in hard drive is the largest they'd seen in a car to date. Edmunds is also wowed by the capabilities of the CTS's optional ($3,145) surround sound system, which has a USB port, iPod integration, and MP3 playback capabilities. It can also record and replay 60 minutes of traditional or satellite radio, on a rolling basis, in case you want to rewind to a section of a show you missed. Several reviewers liken the standout feature to TiVo.

Conclusion

The 2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Sedan and Sport Wagon offer TiVo-style memory for radio shows, a world-class navigation system, and an iPod connection-not to mention serious performance upgrades.

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.
