The Cadillac CTS sedan was tested on Germany's Nurburgring Race Track to assess the performance and fine-tune its agility. The CTS responded with Authoritative acceleration, responsive handling, and a precise brake feel. The outcome resulted with a remarkably powerful drive.
An Executive Car that Owns the Road
The Cadillac CTS Sedan was introduced to the public during September 2002 as a 2003 model. It was assembled on General Motors latest rear-wheel drive Sigma platform and the car sported a fully independent suspension that marked a return of rear-wheel drive cars for the brand. The CTS Sedan was the first Cadillac which offered a manual transmission since the 1988 Cimarron. Among earned tributes for the car was Motor Trend's naming it as their 2014 Car of the year and Car and Driver placing it second overall. Both of them praised the handling and driving dynamics of the racetrack tested Cadillac CTS.
Power and Eight-Speed Automatic Transmission
The 2.0 Litre turbo 4-cylinder engine delivers 268 Horsepower and up to 12.8 L/100 km on the highway, and the available 3.6 Litre V6 engine produces 335 Horsepower and a smooth acceleration. Both of the engines come paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission giving responsive shifting and greater efficiency with Auto Stop/Start technology. The available Magnetic Ride Control adjusts the suspension according to the road and weather conditions. The system reads the condition of the road up to 1000 times a second, tuning the suspension and giving a smoother ride on uneven roads.
Create the Interior of the Cadillac CTS Sedan for Your Comfort
You can personalize the interior of your Cadillac CTS Sedan to suit your expressive taste and style. The selection of options range from genuine wood trim, aluminum, or carbon fiber, as well as semi-aniline leather. There is an available full-colour HD cluster 12-inch LCD screen that allows you to determine what you want to see on the display, from navigation to entertainment. Adjust the temperature to suit you comfortably as the Tri-Zone Climate Control feature allows the driver and front and rear seat passengers to make individual adjustments.
The driver and front passenger have the added comfort of being able to adjust the front seats twenty ways. This provides thigh support manually, and the power-adjustable seat back bolsters give an additional comfort for the ride. The Cadillac CTS Sedan comes with cup holders that can be hidden with an electronic cover when not in use, and the interior's lighting gives a subtly soothing ambiance. The dramatic angles and long low design of the CTS Sedan are most striking. LED lighting and details such as the active aero grille shutters prove advantageous. The signature grille shutters open and close according to the speed of the vehicle for improving the performance. This CTS Sedan model is pure Cadillac; with all-purpose versatility beginning with a head-turning appearance, power and reliability to keep drivers content at the wheel.
