Overview

Cadillac's midsize luxury sedan, the CTS skews toward the sporty end of its class, and yet serves up enough flamboyance and plushness to let you know it's a Cadillac. That combination of virtues makes the CTS a no-excuses premium offering that competes on an international level in all respects.

What's New for 2015

The CTS receives a restyled grille with a simplified Cadillac emblem. Some option package have been updated as well.

Choosing Your Cadillac CTS

While previous generations of the CTS were on the small side of this class, the current model is solidly midsize and priced accordingly.

The base 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder packs a lot of grunt for its size: 272 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission comes standard. The available 3.6-liter V6 achieves 321 horsepower and uses an eight-speed automatic. Either engine can be paired with all-wheel drive, in which case the V6 gets the six-speed unit.

The line-topping turbocharged version of the V6 lays down 420 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque for decidedly racy performance. The pumped V6 comes exclusively with rear-wheel drive and the eight-speed transmission.

Cadillac offers the CTS in no less than six trim levels:

Cadillac CTS

Standard

Comes with the 2-liter engine and your choice of rear- or all-wheel drive. Standard features include Brembo front brakes, 17-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, remote start, paddle shifters, Bluetooth phone and audio, and power front seats with driver memory. The 11-speaker Bose surround-sound system features an SD card reader and satellite and HD radio. Cadillac's infotainment control interface, known as CUE, is also standard.

The optional Seating package rounds things out with genuine leather upholstery (in place of the standard leatherette), heated and ventilated front seats, a split-folding rear seat, a heated power-adjustable steering wheel, LED ambient lighting and auto-dimming side mirrors. Individual options include a navigation system, a panoramic sunroof and a 13-speaker Bose system.

Cadillac CTS

Luxury

Gets the Seating package as standard and the V6 engine as an option. Safety gets a boost with the standard Driver Awareness package, which adds a rearview camera, automatic wipers and high beams, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning and forward collision alert. The Luxury also carries adaptive xenon headlamps and expanded passenger seat controls. The Standard model's options carry over with the addition of available 18-inch wheels.

Cadillac CTS

Performance

Carries the Luxury's equipment and options, plus an adaptive suspension, an automated parking system and a head-up display. You also get interior enhancements such as a illuminated door handles and sill plates, a household-style power outlet, tri-zone automatic climate control, heated rear seats and rear sun shades.

You can add the Driver Assist package with adaptive cruise control and active collision mitigation; and the Performance Seat and Cluster package, which tacks on 20-way front sport seats, alloy pedals and configurable gauges.

Cadillac CTS

Vsport

Packs the turbocharged V6 engine and other performance upgrades such as sport-tuned steering and suspension systems, a heavy-duty cooling system, a limited-slip rear differential, summer performance tires and a Track driving mode. The self-parking system is also part of the deal. Otherwise, the Vsport is equipped like the Luxury, except navigation and the upgraded Bose system are standard rather than optional.

Cadillac CTS

Vsport Premium

Combines Premium trim level's extra equipment with the Vsport's performance upgrades. Options for both Vsport models include 19-inch wheels, high-performance brake pads and carbon fiber interior trim.

CarsDirect Tip

Don't be scared off by the notion of a four-cylinder engine in a midsize Cadillac. The 2-liter is mighty for its size and actually develops more torque than the V6. We especially like the Performance trim level, which adds some excitement without requiring you too spring for the full-blown Vsport treatment, thrilling as it is.
