Beautifully crisp lines dominate the CTS’ sheet metal with LED lighting amplifying the corners. Stacked exhaust ports grace the rear, offering further confirmation that this is no ordinary sedan.
The CTS’ exterior is stunning, while its interior seems understated, although handsome. The cabin eschews the sharp exterior angles for clean, soothing lines. Top-end versions do the best job of mingling leather with wood, but even on base models the canvas is exquisite.
The center console features a standard 8.0-inch touchscreen, which twins well with the 5.7-inch monitor between the gauges. On top-trim models, you’ll find a 12.3-inch reconfigurable gauge cluster.
The front seats are comfortable, even plush. The rear seat is also comfortable, although legroom is tight and the seat is most suitable for two, not three. If you place a premium on cargo space, the 13.7 cubic-foot trunk disappoints, coming in smaller than some compact models.
