Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The Cadillac CTS is enhanced for 2015 with wireless charging for select mobile phones, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, a revised grille and crest, and the ability to park itself both parallel and perpendicular to the curb. A limited run of 500 CTS-V Coupe Special Editions mark the end of the carryover V range.
The 6-speed manual gearbox is gone from all but the CTS-V models. There are some minor finish tweaks on the grille, a couple new metallic paint colors, standard remote starting across the range and some new equipment for the Base, Luxury, Performance and Premium trim packages.
2012 CTS models receive a new available 318-horsepower V6 engine, three new exterior colors (Black Diamond, Opulent Blue and Mocha Steel) and standard Bluetooth hands-free phone capability. The exterior colors are also available for the CTS-V models, as well as an available blind spot warning system for the coupe model.
The sleekly styled Cadillac CTS Coupe joins sedan and wagon variants of the CTS in the brand's lineup. The 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe comes in four trim levels: The base 3.6L V6, the mid-level 3.6L V6 Performance, the 3.6L V6 Premium and the V8-powered CTS-V Coupe.
A fuel-saving 3.0-liter gasoline direct injection V6 is now the CTS' standard engine. New features include an air filtration unit with automatic cabin odor filtration and available 19-inch polished aluminum wheels. Later in the model year, a wagon version will join the CTS lineup (reviewed separately).
Totally revamped just last year, the 2015 CTS is Cadillac's formidable entry into the midsize luxury sport-sedan segment. Like its European competitors the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Cadillac CTS offers a fine blend of style, comfort, technology and performance. Three engines are available, from a turbocharged 4-cylinder that achieves up to 30 mpg to a twin-turbo V6 that outputs 420 horsepower. For drivers requiring enhanced traction, all-wheel drive can be had in lieu of the standard rear-wheel drive. For 2015, the CTS will be sold as a sedan only, with the wagon and coupe no longer offered. Taking the year off is the CTS-V sedan while a new version of the high-performance Cadillac is developed on this latest CTS' acclaimed platform.

"I am very pleased with the car. Great design, always gets looks. I have been lucky to have owned some nice looking cars (traded a Honda S-2000)and none come close to this car. Quality inside and out. I test drove all the German competitors and they are not as engaging to drive. I was worried about the CUE system when I bought the car because of the expert reviews(finger prints). Don't be, you set up most settings once and can use the toggle buttons on the steering wheel for most things. I think I wiped the screen twice in a year. Run Flat Tires only negative."

"It was time to reluctantly trade my 07 Cadillac CTS Sport on a new car. Hearing all the hype about the 2014 CTS, and my love of my 07, convinced me to buy one. I got a fully loaded 2.0T CTS4. My love affair with my previous CTS has been quickly replaced by a car that exceeds it in almost every way. The 4 cylinder engine provides amazing power and agility. The transmission hesitates from time to time at lower speeds, which an eight speed will fix. There also seems to be more tire noise than I find acceptable for a premium vehicle, but that may just be the Pirelli's. These are the only faults I have found. The interior is impeccable and tasteful. The build quality far exceeds my first CTS. Tight tolerances, no rattles, and high end materials. The seats are just the right amount of firmness to be perfectly comfortable. The best part, though, is the driving experience. This car is just plain fun. It's powerful, responsive, and always draws the eyes of admirers. There is so much to love about this car that you can't go wrong if you get one, too"
