KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Bob Nagy - Updated Date: 10/1/2013

While the Coupe, Sport Wagon and all CTS-V models carry over unchanged (see our 2013 Cadillac CTS review), the fully redesigned, 3rd-generation 2014 CTS Sedan embodies an entirely new level of style, stature, technology and performance. Three engines – including the 420-horsepower V6 Twin Turbo in the CTS Vsport – rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD), and an available adaptive suspension give the new midsize 4-door an exceptional combination of sophistication and exhilaration. Slightly larger than its predecessor, the all-new CTS Sedan also is significantly lighter, a synergistic combination that benefits its ability to both carve corners and pamper passengers. Equally important, this comprehensive recasting gives the CTS Sedan world-class credentials that let it go head-to-head with targeted rivals like the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

You'll Like This Car If...

Expressive design, impressive dynamic qualities and polished Cadillac character make all versions of the CTS appealing, but the all-new Sedan raises those benchmark qualities to new levels in all three areas.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If Cadillac's edgy styling isn't your thing, or you prefer more traditionally Teutonic approach to your midsize luxury, you'll likely be happier with an Audi, BMW or Mercedes-Benz alternative.

What's Significant About This Car?

The Cadillac CTS Sedan has been completely redesigned for the 2014 model year. Save for revised exterior colors, all other models carry forward unchanged.

Driving It Driving Impressions

The carryover members of the CTS lineup remain desirable travel mates in their own right, but it's the 2014 CTS Sedan that takes GM's luxury division to a new and even better place. Based on a stretched version of the sophisticated Alpha platform that also underpins Cadillac's compact ATS, the 2014 CTS 4-door boasts superior control and agility under all conditions. This is especially true on models equipped with Magnetic Ride Control, which complements the enhanced dynamic character with Cadillac-level comfort and even more advanced driver-focused technology. Smooth and capable in rear-drive or all-wheel-drive models, the 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V6 will remain the most popular CTS motivator, but we found the new Sedan-only 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder an enticing alternative. While nothing equals the pure adrenaline rush of a CTS-V's 556-horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged V8, the new 420-horsepower V6 Twin Turbo in the CTS Vsport comes tantalizingly close in real-world terms – and for considerably less money.

Favorite Features

Available on all CTS Sedans and standard on the CTS-V, Vsport and all Sedans with 18-inch and 19-inch wheel/tire fitments, Magnetic Ride Control offers real-time multi-mode damper programming that fine tunes the car's ride. In CTS-V/Vsport "Sport"/"Track" settings, it also tweaks steering effort and shift mapping to more performance-oriented configurations.

Excusive to the new Vsport CTS Sedan, this tech-rich force-fed stormer makes an exhilarating 420-horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. Cadillac is quick to note that the Twin Turbo only shares about 10 percent of its components with the naturally aspirated 3.6-liter six offered in other CTS models.
