Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

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
Athletic handling
State-of-the-art tech features

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

By:

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

The 2018 Cadillac CTS puts German rivals on handling notice.

Pros
Stunning sharp lines, sleek cockpit
A no-excuses rival for German handling
Hugely satisfying VSport model
Great 8-speed automatic

Cons
Well, there’s no wagon...
CUE interface ready for Version 2.0
V-6 doesn’t outrun turbo-4 by a lot

By:

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 has the style and performance to match its German rivals, but is the brand there yet?

Pros
Handsome design
Inexpensive base model
Spacious rear compartment
Capable handling
31-mile plug-in hybrid range

Cons
Firm ride, all the time
Missing a few luxury amenities
Driver's seat won't suit some
No V-8, but who will want a 2.0-liter four?
Can Cadillac market a plug-in hybrid?

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 ranked #4 in Luxury Large Cars. Currently the Cadillac CT6 has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 21 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Three powerful engine options
Good fuel economy with base engine
Two rows of spacious seats

Cons
Undersized trunk
Finicky touch screen

By: 
usnews.com

The 2018 Cadillac CT6 can best be described as a full-size luxury sedan, but it's priced like a midsize. If you like the idea of a spacious and upscale luxury sedan with a little Detroit attitude, this Cadillac fits the bill.

PROS
Plenty of rear passenger space for adults
Engaging driving experience for a large luxury sedan
Priced less than many competing sedans

CONS
Lacks the cosseting ride quality offered by competitors
Virtually no unique customizability compared to rivals
No V8 engine offered
