don't think anyone at Cadillac has forgotten about safety.

The 2014 Cadillac CTS sedan is so new that its crash-test ratings are a rapidly evolving story; but all else points to an extremely safe sport sedan.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) hasn't had a chance to crash-test the new sedan yet, but the carryover models are rated at five stars overall, including five stars in both frontal and side impact tests. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gives the new sedan "good" scores for front- and side-impact tests, but hasn't awarded an overall rating yet.

All versions of the new sedan will get more than the usual number of airbags--10 are standard, including front knee airbags. Rear parking sensors and a rearview camera are also included, as is GM's OnStar telematics system with a free year of service--and remote access via a smartphone app.

On the options list, the CTS sedan will offer a parking assistant, which uses its suite of sensors and cameras and the car's electric power steering to help guide it into parallel-park spaces without drama. There's also the now-common package of adaptive cruise control, cross-traffic alerts, forward-collision alerts, and lane-departure warnings--with a twist. The latter system vibrates the steering wheel in most other vehicles; in the CTS sedan, it sends a shiver through the driver's seat cushion, a gentler alert that even triggers on the correct side of the seat, depending on which side of the yellow line you cross.

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.
