The 2014 Cadillac CTS: What the critics say

How did the new Cadillac CTS fare with the critics? The price starts at $45,100.

ConsumerReports.org
BMW and Lexus have just been trumped in the fun-to-drive department. The completely redesigned CTS, Cadillac’s midsize luxury sports sedan, now ranks at the top of its class in performance. Equipped with “a gem of an engine” and an active rear differential swiped from the new Corvette, the $69,000 top-of-the-line Vsport edition displays “effortless power” and “an uncanny willingness to corner.” Indeed, “this is the way the BMW 5-series used to feel.”

Edmunds.com
“Cadillac has revised just about everything,” adding 4 inches to the car’s overall length even as its weight has declined. -Cadillac’s touch-screen infotainment system still responds too slowly, but the rest of the new cabin gives off “a very luxurious vibe,” and the exterior styling has become “more flowing and elegant.”

Road & Track
The interior could have used fewer “welcome-to-the-future gizmos.” Do CTS drivers really need motorized lids on their cup holders? But just about everything else about this car tells us that the slightly smaller and “wonderful to drive” ATS wasn’t a one-off but the beginning of a new day in one corner of Detroit. “After years of promising a million things to a million people,” Cadillac has gotten serious about being the driver’s brand in the luxury segment. And the plan is working.
