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

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
