Cadillac CTS Sport Sedan

The new Cadillac CTS Sport Sedan is a perfect mixture between the American Stile and European handling. Over the past 10 years, there have been three generations of CTS, all very popular among luxury sedan consumers. The first generation had a few minor shortcomings in terms of interior design. The second generation featured some improvements that justified its advertisements as a luxury sedan. However, it was only with the third generation that the manufacturers managed to grasp a comprehensive understanding of the term luxury sedan. With numerous improvements, the new CTS Sport Sedan has now risen to the standards imposed by its competitors from across the ocean.

Performance

Presented as a car for all seasons, the Cadillac CTS Sport Sedan was awarded the 2014 Motor Trend Car of the Year title and for good reasons. If the previous generations of CTS featured an outrageous lack of power train options, this is not the case of the 2014 CTS, which features a turbocharged 2.0 liter four cylinder engine which deliver high power as well as an impressive fuel economy. The twin turbo Vsport has taken the fight to the Germans and has actually beaten their twin turbo V-8. The 2.0 L engine delivers 272 horsepower, but if you choose the 3.6 L V6 engine, you will have the chance of enjoying 321 horsepower and 430 lb.-ft. of torque. The car also comes with performance tuned RWD or optional AWD with active torque features. The Twin Turbo V6 is paired with a 8-speed transmission, which allows the car to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 4.4 seconds. Furthermore, despite the fact that performance was obviously the main factor taken into account when designing this car, safety was not ignored either. The CTS comes with multi-mode magnetic ride control, a feature which keeps the wheel firm on all terrains.

Design

If the previous generations of CTS had serious performance problems, the same cannot be said for their design which was perfect to begin with. However, with proper improvements, the new Cadillac CTS Sport Sedan has raised the design standards for sports sedans across the world. The car now features an amazing chassis which in combination with a great body control and a lively steering makes the car very responsive to curves. The car may look as big as its direct competitors, but it is in fact hundreds of pounds lighter, thus delivering an increased performance and handling. As far as the interior goes, you can choose between 8 interior themes. Simply browse through the various choices of exotic wood and pick the one which looks the most luxurious. Combine that with anodized aluminum or carbon fiber and the hand cut and sewn leather seats and you’ve cut yourself an amazing interior.
