The all-new Cadillac CTS Coupe still remains one of my favorite models this year and is definitely something to talk about. It’s fast, sporty and luxurious.
“It’s difficult to describe just how striking the CTS Coupe is in the flesh. Fresh, crisp, bold, sexy, smart, savvy and even – to quote Cadillac – audacious. We hate to swallow marketing pabulum of any sort, but in this situation, with this car, the descriptor ‘audacious’ rings absolutely true,” says Autoblog.”
“Of course, for many drivers, true beauty is on the inside. Left Lane News says: “If you liked the interior of the CTS Sport Sedan, you will love the interior of the new CTS Coupe. Borrowing heavily from the sistership CTS Sports Sedan, the dashboard, and new center console are identical to those found in the four-door. Legible gauges easily display pertinent info, and the hidden navi-screen pops up from its perch on the top of the center stack to give directions or to hide everything but the audio information in a discreet fashion.”
Fortunately, the CTS Coupe’s 3.6-liter V6, rated at 304 horsepower and paired with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission, is up to the task when you need to put the spurs to the nearly 3,800 pound vehicle. We didn’t do any instrumented testing of the car, but acceleration was, as Bentley used to say, “more than adequate,” with some nice engine noises coming into the cabin at the top of the rev range. That power output is right on par with the BMW, Lexus and Infiniti and well-ahead of the Mercedes E350 Coupe said AutoGuide.com.
Experience the beauty and performance with a test drive and let me know what you think about the Cadillac CTS.
