The Cadillac CTS-V is offered as a single model, pretty much including everything that’s expected in a traditional luxury car, plus a few additional tech features.

Xenon HID headlamps, Adaptive Forward Lighting, ultrasonic rear parking assist, rain-sensing wipers, heated power front seats, and dual-zone climate control are all included. So is a surround-sound audio system with a 40GB hard drive, USB connectivity, DVD compatibility, and a Bluetooth interface. Cadillac also provides a place to put the keyfob for the handy EZ key entry system, which can be set to automatically unlock the doors as you approach.

Upgrade to the navigation system and you get one of the best screens we’ve tested; the sharp color screen functions as a radio display when stowed but extends upward when using nav functions. It also incorporates XM NavTraffic to provide live traffic information on maps as well as dynamic rerouting. ConsumerGuide reports that "the navigation screen is large and legible, and quickly powers up or down."

Plenty of review sources take note of the standard and optional tech features in the CTS-V. ConsumerGuide says that "features include steering-linked headlamps and keyless entry and ignition," 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."

Because the 2010 Cadillac CTS-V already comes with the works, the options list is limited to a few features—most of them aimed at those who want the best possible performance or might take their vehicle to the track on weekends. Motor Trend notes that that the available Performance Pack includes "metal-faced pedals" and Cadillac's new "Performance Traction Management." But by far, the upgraded Recaro sport seats are the most talked-about option. 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."

Conclusion

All the latest entertainment and connectivity features come together with thrilling, track-ready performance in the 2010 Cadillac CTS-V.

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.
