Styling

The first-generation CTS set Cadillac on its current styling direction with its creased, angular shape, but the design philosophy really hit its stride with this second-generation car. Sharp edges create a look that's uniquely Cadillac, but the design isn't forced like it was in some places on the first-gen car.

You also can get the CTS in coupe and wagon body styles, but the design looks best to my eye on the sedan. Its rear styling is the most cohesive with the front end, which doesn't differ much among body styles.

The 2012 CTS gets new grille styling, but the changes are subtle and the overall shield shape that's become a familiar Cadillac design cue remains.
