2011 Cadillac CTS Review

Cadillac CTS / Reviews / 2011 Cadillac CTS Review

Since its 2008 redesign, the Cadillac CTS has been a car you could point to as evidence that GM can build world-class cars. It's classy, through and through, and proves that when the automaker puts its considerable resources behind a product, it can compete with the best of most of its competitors. You may notice I said "most"...

The CTS can go toe-to-toe with its Mercedes, Audi and Lexus rivals. While it does hit on some of the driving characteristics that make BMWs so revered, its driving experience doesn't fire on all cylinders, if you will.

The new CTS and CTS-V coupes covered in this review continue that trend. They offer distinctive style and — in V-Series form — formidable power, but after testing both these cars I can't see many driving enthusiasts choosing them over a comparable BMW. Seat-comfort problems hurt the coupes even more.

The CTS lineup has expanded considerably over the years, and for 2011 the car is available as a sedan, coupe or wagon, with V-Series variants for all the body styles. For a comparison, click here.
