The 2013 Cadillac CTS hasn't yet been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) yet, but the structurally identical 2012 Cadillac CTS won top marks from both agencies, including a Top Safety Pick from the IIHS for the Sedan. We expect the 2013 CTS to mirror these results.

In addition to the strong structure, the CTS offers plenty of safety equipment, including: six airbags, traction and stability control; available all-wheel drive (standard on the SPort Wagon); available parking sensors; and an optional rearview backup camera.

The one shortcoming of the CTS, particularly the Coupe, is rearward visibility, which can be compromised due to the chunky rear roof pillars. The Sedan is the least compromised in this respect.

Conclusion

Safety scores for the 2013 Cadillac CTS aren't in yet, but we expect it to continue to return top marks, but beware of the limited rearward visibility.

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.
