With minimal updates since 2011, the Cadillac CTS carries into the 2013 model year in familiar form, but despite the lack of changes, it continues its run as the best American player in the midsize luxury market.

Available as a Sport Wagon, Coupe, or Sedan, the 2013 CTS wears sharp creases, angular surfaces, and a wide stance. The Sedan's wedge-shaped, truncated look is heightened in the Coupe, which also gets a wing-like rear trunklid tail light and slightly wider rear fenders. The chunky proportions at the rear of the Coupe make it instantly recognizable and somewhat controversial. The Sport Wagon extends the CTS rearward, giving it better proportions to some eyes, while still managing to look sporty and athletic despite its wagon form factor.

Inside, the design of the CTS range is more uniform, with each getting the same essential V-shaped center panel stack, elegant cut-and-sew leather trim, and ample wood and chrome accents. The overall effect is one of luxury, but with a slightly in-your-face feel--it won't be to everyone's taste, but it will suit many better than the stolid, somber ethos of the Germans.

The 2013 Cadillac CTS continues to turn heads, even in a class filled with attractive cars.
