New cars: Cadillac CTS coupe

What the critics say about the $37,330 Cadillac CTS coupe

Car and Driver
“It’s astonishing, really,” that such an amazing automobile was produced by a company that in the past few years went bankrupt and churned through three CEOs. But Cadillac’s parent company can at least be proud of the new CTS coupe, “arguably one of the most striking GM cars ever.” Wheels, fenders, and tires have a hand-in-glove fit, while the front and back windshields are raked at radically low angles.

Automobile
“In terms of pure looks,” this car is best in its class. “Pictures just don’t do it justice.” More important to us, though, “the CTS coupe feels and drives like it’s been to finishing school.” The 3.6-liter V6, with a manual transmission, can go from zero-to-60 in about six seconds. Extra-wide rear tires and a thick rear anti-roll bar “provide more overall grip without hurting the car’s balance.”
 
Edmunds.com
Actually, we found the multilink rear suspension to be pretty stiff. The steering has “a very solid, vaguely heavy feel we typically associate with German cars.” There are a few other drawbacks. The small side windows have poorer visibility than we’d like, and those steep windshields mean “you’re going to want to leave your head at home” if you’re sitting in the back seat.
