Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V is a great example of getting the best of both worlds, serving as a practical companion during the week and turning into a track-day weapon on the weekend.

Pros
Supercharged V8's powerful acceleration
World-class ride and handling
Superior support from optional sport seats

Cons
Ride may be too rough for some
Tech interface may frustrate
Small trunk
Less luxurious cabin than those of competitors

The 2019 Cadillac CTS-V is arguably the greatest American performance sedan ever, and we will miss it dearly when it's discontinued after 2019.

Pros
Immense power
Supercar-like moves
Raucous exhaust note
Sharp steering

Cons
Last-generation fit and finish
Poor crash test scores

By: 
thecarconnection.com

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

By: 
edmunds.com

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
