Not quite midsize

Like most mid-size entry-level luxury cars, the CTS has a fairly restrictive cabin. Although I can live with that, the hard front and very tight rear seats put a damper on the experience. Sure, its constricted in the 3-Series, less-so in the A4, but the very limited front and rear legroom literally cramps this cars style.

Thankfully, fit and finish is especially nice and the choice of materials is worthy of the name Cadillac. The plethora of controls on the dashboard looks complex at first but one does get used to everything fairly quickly. Other niceties include a very fast power hatch mechanism and a delightful factory-installed remote starter (especially when its -20 degrees outside).

Caddys time will come and the CTS (especially the wagon if you ask me) will be instrumental in its return to glory.
