Redline Review: 2014 Cadillac CTS V-Sport
With the smaller ATS now in the lineup, the 2014 Cadillac CTS is finally
free to move up-market in size, power, and prestige. The all-new
third-generation CTS showcases a lot of firsts for the Cadillac brand. The
first twin-turbo engine, 8-speed
transmission, and a plethora of luxury and technology makes this one of the
best mid-size luxury sedans money can buy. If you want the best handling
vehicle in the segment, look no further, your sport sedan has arrived.

Let's be honest, it has been quite some time since Cadillac has been "the
Cadillac" of anything. With the 2014 CTS V-Sport, Cadillac is aiming to
turn the clock back to Cadillac's heyday. The 2014 V-Sport isn't the value
option in the segment and it isn't even the cheapest option when you really
think about it. Instead Cadillac has done something that many detractors
thought impossible for an American brand: they quite simply made the better
sedan. The 2014 V-Sport may bring a V6 to a V8 fight, but after a week with
Caddy's new sport sedan it was easy to pick the winner. Unless you're
looking to deck your BMW, Mercedes or Audi up with rare and expensive
options, the CTS does just about everything the Germans can only better.

2014 Cadillac CTS 2.0L Turbo Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/cadillac/cts/2014/?id=32972 In the past the CTS
had to serve 2 roles for Cadillac: it was first the entry level car and
second was the BMW 5-Series competitor. But now with the ATS; the 2014
Cadillac CTS has grown a couple of inches and can finally just be a
mid-sized luxury car. The new redesigned CTS looks a lot like the ATS
though and that is either a good thing or bad thing depending on what you
think of Cadillac's new design direction. The CTS has a base price of
$39,495 with the top-of-the-line model going for $69,070.
Under the hood is a turbocharged 2.0
liter 4-cylinder engine that makes 272 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission is a 6-speed automatic and fuel economy figures
are 19 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway.
The most important part of a luxury car is the interior. The interior of
the 2014 Cadillac CTS says "you have arrived." There are nice soft-touch
leather materials along with natural wood trim that gives this car a
"German feel." The suspension has the GM Magnetic Ride Controlled Shocks
that really give the CTS a nice luxurious ride quality.
This Cadillac CTS tested here is the Premium model which is loaded with all
the gadgets and technology you would expect out of a high-end German luxury
car. Some of the systems include: Adaptive Cruise Control, a Self-Parking
System, and a digital gauge cluster just to name a few.

2014 Cadillac CTS 2.0T Review and Road Test

It's been decades since Cadillac produced the "Cadillac" of anything.
However, when car buffs dismiss the only American luxury brand left, they
fail to see Cadillac's march forward. 2002 brought the first RWD Cadillac
since the Fleetwoood. A year later the XLR roadster hit, followed in 2004
by Cadillac's first 5-Series fighter, the STS. Not everything was rosy. The
original CTS drove like a BMW but lacked charm and luxury fittings. The XLR
was based on a Corvette, which made for excellent road manners, but the
Northstar engine didn't have the oomph. The STS sounded like a good idea,
but the half-step CTS wasn't much smaller and ultimately shoppers weren't
interested in a bargain option. That brings us to the new ATS and CTS.
Ditching the "more car for less money" mantra, the ATS has been created to
fight the C/3/IS leaving the CTS free to battle the E/5/GS head-on. Can
Caddy's sensible new strategy deliver the one-two punch fans have hoped
for? I snagged a CTS 2.0T for a week to find out.
I found the outgoing CTS a little discordant, but 2014 brings an elegant
more aggressive refresh. GM's Art and Science theme has matured from
"cubism gone wrong" to shapes that flow and jibe with a larger grille and
softer creases. The 5-Series continues to go for elegant and restrained, I
find the XF and A6′s design a mixture of plain-Jane and snazzy headlamps
while the Infiniti Q5o and Lexus GS are going for flowing elegance.
The demur side profile continues with a simple character line to draw your
eye from front to rear. One thing you'll notice during that eye-movement is
the distinct RWD proportions that separate the CTS, E, 5, GS, XF and Q50
from the long-nosed Audi A6 and near-luxury FWD options. Out back the CTS'
rump is a bit less exciting but employs all the latest luxury cues from
hidden Exhaust tops to light piped
tail lamps. I was hoping Caddy's fins would be further resurrected, but
the "proto fins" on the XTS are absent. Pity. Obvious from every angle is
an attention to build quality absent from earlier generations with perfect
panel gaps and seams.
Unfortunately, the first thing you'll notice out on the road is the coarse
sound from under the hood. GM's 2.0L engine is no less refined than BMW or
Mercedes' four-bangers, but the difference is you can hear the engine in
the CTS. In fact, based on the overall quietness of the cabin (a
competitive 67 dB at 50 MPH), I can only conclude that Cadillac designed
the engine to be heard. I don't mind hearing the 3.6L V6, but most luxury
shoppers would prefer not to be reminded they chose the rational engine
every time they get on the freeway. On the bright side, because GM does not
offer start/stop tech, shoppers are spared the inelegant starts and stops
that characterize 528i city driving.
While I'm picking nits, the 6-speed found in the 2.0T and most 3.6 models
lacks the ratio spread and shift smoothness of the ZF 8-speed automatic
found in most of the competition.
The reason I label those flaws as mere nits is because of how the CTS
accomplishes every other task on the road. Acceleration to 60 happens a
4/10ths faster than an E350, a
half-second faster than the 528i,
a full second faster than a GS350,
and practically years ahead of the A6 2.0T. Part of this has to do with the
engine's superior torque curve and higher horsepower numbers, but
plenty has to do with curb weight. At 3,616 lbs, the CTS 2.oT is 200lbs
lighter than the BMW or Lexus, 400lbs lighter than an E350. The comparable
Audi A6 would be the front-wheel-drive 2.0T model with the CVT at 3,726. If
you think that's an unfair comparison, the 2.0T with Quattro is 3,900lbs
and does little to correct the A6′s front-heavy weight balance.

practical as a daily driver. We visit well known tuner D3 to see how the
