The 2013 Cadillac CTS packs plenty of audio, navigation, comfort, and style options to compete with, and even sometimes beat, the best in class--but you'll want to upgrade from the base upholstery.

Essentially identical to the 2012 CTS, which was itself little changed from the 2011 model, the 2013 CTS nevertheless keeps pace with the luxury mid-size pack on technology and features, with some options that will impress--though you'll pay for the privilege.

Base models offer cruise control; Bluetooth connectivity; automatic dual-zone climate control; a power-adjust driver's seat; AM/FM/CD/XM audio with auxiliary input; automatic headlights; and one year of OnStar turn-by-turn directions, plus more.

A range of trim lines, including Luxury, Performance, and Premium, bring pre-packaged sets of features, including Bose 10-speakers surround sound, an "UltraView" panoramic sunroof, pop-up navigation system, leather upholstery, remote start, upgraded wood trim, and much more.

The one caveat with the feature-rich CTS line: the very reasonable $35,915 start price can quick rise north of $50,000 in well-equipped Premium models.

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.
