Expert Quotes:

Get the Recaros, which incidentally have more adjustable bladders than Rosie, too.
Edmunds' Inside Line

Put the car into reverse and the navigation screen rises quickly from the dash and the rearview image appears immediately.
Automobile Magazine

we love the Corvette-style hidden pushbutton door handles
Autoblog

the seats are heated and ventilated to boot
Consumer Guide

The Recaros are pricey at $3,400 for the pair, but we think it's money well spent in a world-class performance car.
Edmunds

Unlike many luxury vehicles, the Cadillac CTS-V range doesn't divide itself into multiple tiers of trim and equipment levels; it's well-equipped in base form and offers a handful of available technology upgrades.

Standard equipment includes Xenon HID headlamps; Adaptive Forward Lighting system; rearview cameras; rear park assist sensors; rain-sensing wipers; a heated steering whee; heated, powered front seats; dual-zone climate control; 40-GB surround-sound audio; Bluetooth interface; USB connectivity; and DVD compatibility.

Keyless entry is also standard, and can be programmed to automatically unlock the doors as you approach with the keyfob.

A navigation system is the primary upgrade option, with a vibrant, attractive screen. A unique feature is its retracting/extending dual-function behavior: a button allows the screen to be drawn down into the dash, leaving a small portion visible for climate and audio controls. With the screen extended upward, full navigation and other functions are visible. Real-time traffic functions are available with XM NavTraffic, enabling live displays of traffic jams and dynamic rerouting.

All Cadillacs now come standard with Cadillac Premium Care Maintenance, which includes oil changes, inspections, and other scheduled maintenance for the first four years of ownership, or 50,000 miles.

Conclusion

High-end audio, a trick navigation system, and excellent standard equipment levels make the 2013 Cadillac CTS-V a legitimate contender in luxury ranks--at a (relative) bargain price.

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.
