Driving Impression

Most CTS buyers look past V-8 power, instead choosing the highly-regarded V-6. They’re not likely to be disappointed. With a V-6 underhood, the CTS reaches 60 mph in a brisk 6 seconds – or well below 5 seconds, if it’s a turbocharged V-Sport engine.

The 4-cylinder’s performance is decent, too, promising quiet cruising. Cadillac’s 8-speed automatic shifts cleanly, with reasonable swiftness.

Ride comfort is Cadillac-appropriate, but handling is where the CTS truly excels. Relatively light weight helps point this premium sedan toward the top of its class in deft handling – especially if it happens to be a V-Sport. Adaptive shock absorbers are well worth their additional cost.

In addition to Cadillac’s magnetic suspension, the V-Sport benefits from quicker steering, an electronic limited-slip differential, and bigger front brakes.

Superior build quality and ample sound deadening translates to quiet time on the road. Adding to the serenity, the Bose audio system features active noise cancellation.

Despite such fuel-saving features as active grille shutters and stop/start, gas mileage falls well short of such sedan as the Audi A6 or Volvo S90.

The 4-cylinder CTS sedan is EPA-rated at 22/30 mpg City/Highway, or 25 mpg Combined, dropping to 21/29/24 mpg with all-wheel drive. The V-6 model is EPA-rated at 19/29 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive lowers that estimate to 18/26/21 mpg.

In the V-Sport, with twin-turbo V-6 power, the EPA rating drops to 16/24 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined. Economy-minded buyers wouldn’t be happy with a CTS-V, EPA-rated at 14/21/16 mpg.

Walk Around

The 2019 CTS lets its edgy, assertive body shape transmit its performance intentions.

Since emerging in 2014, the current-generation CTS hasn’t changed much. Big vertical LED taillights sit above aggressive-looking dual exhaust outlets. Viewed from the rear, the CTS suggests memorable Cadillacs of the distant past.

Curves and angles come together to produce one handsomely proportioned sedan, ranking among the best-looking cars in its class.

Interior Overview

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Just as they do on the exterior, curves and angle mingle within the subdued cabin.

Even though it officially qualifies as a mid-size sedan, the CTS cabin is considerably snugger than typical competitors. A lone trim element stretches across the dashboard. Wood and leather blend with soft-touch plastic, creating an interior undeniably worthy of the Cadillac badge. Two-tone leather is available, to attract even greater interest.

Front occupants can anticipate gratifying comfort, held securely in position by amply-bolstered seats. Space is tighter in the back seat, thanks to the sleek, low roofline. Legroom is somewhat snug too. The trunk also is relatively small, at 13.7 cubic feet.

Two big screens may occupy much of the dashboard. An available 12.3-inch instrument cluster display, sharp and easy-reading, keeps the driver informed. The impressive 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen works with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Summary

In its last model year, the Cadillac CTS demonstrates how satisfying a sport sedan can be. Abundant technology and plentiful standard equipment help set this sedan apart from its competitors.
