The 2018 Cadillac CTS ranked #6 in Luxury Midsize Cars. Currently the Cadillac CTS has a score of 8.5 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 43 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Punchy twin-turbo V6 and supercharged V8 engines

State-of-the-art tech features

Cons
Cramped back seats
Unrefined four-cylinder base engine
Low gas mileage estimates
Below-average predicted reliability

The midsize luxury sedan segment is packed with great choices. To succeed, the 2018 Cadillac CTS can't just copy the more popular German or Japanese models. Instead, Cadillac has focused on giving buyers unmistakable design, sporty driving characteristics and modern in-car technology.

PROS
All versions have precise handling
V-Sport engine offers outstanding acceleration

CONS
Rear seat room is smaller than for some competitors
Touch panel center console controls are distracting
Base engine lacks refinement

Great 8-speed automatic

Well, there’s no wagon...

Stunning styling that hasn't aged

CONS
Less rear headroom than a typical luxury sedan
Doesn't offer Audi's latest infotainment interface

By:
