In 2003, Cadillac introduced itís first line of vehicles under their new philosophy of ďArt and ScienceĒ, the Cadillac CTS. Gone were the days of rounded and softer curves, the Cadillac CTS had sharp, sleek lines, a sporty version of comfort and luxury. And fortunately for Cadillac, they hit the nail on the head with the Cadillac CTS.
Itís one of the best selling cars in itís class.
The Cadillac CTS falls under the category of a sports sedan, however, in all
actuality itís comfort and function rivals none in itís category. Most
comparable models, specifically the BMW M3, which is also in the sports sedan
class, falls short on overall performance, looks, and functions.
The Cadillac CTS falls second to none in the realm of comfort and
self-indulgence, itís roominess, instrument panel, interior style, and audio
system are impeccable. It may be a bid slower on the go than the European sports
sedans, but for comfort and all-around performance; it canít be beat. So unless
youíre planning on racing a BMW on the Autobahn, you should be in fine shape.
The Cadillac CTS comes with a choice of engines, as well. Many customers prefer to purchase the Cadillac CTS-V, which is powered with the Corvetteís 400 horsepower LS6, while the traditional CTS comes equipped with a V-6. Prices for these great vehicles can run a driver between $26,000 and $50,000 depending upon engine size and options.
Overall, the price comparison is basically the same for sports sedans, the overall performance on the road, as well; so why buy a Cadillac CTS? Most owners of the new Cadillac CTS like the look, the sleek new body style that offers a sportier look than traditional caddies. Second, the overall smoothness and luxury of the ride is still the same.

Cadillac may have change the outside a bit, but the suspension and comfort of those heated seats, not to mention the overall roominess and interior space is second to none. No other sports sedan offers the driver a luxury fast car like the Cadillac CTS.

One of our readers sent in pictures of his 2009 CTS and a little
modification he did. Here is his email.
I am sending two pictures of my 2009 CTS I made a change in the grille
that I would like to pass on. The four horizontal grey bars extending out
from emblem look cheap so I got some 1/4" half round chrome body molding and
suck it on the leading edges it works perfect and got the look I wanted and
very easy to put on have since put mud flaps on painted the same as car they
look ok ! I am now waiting for my vent shades for windows...two spot lights
would be great too...ha ha ha should I?...Louie
I like the way this looks but I am not sure it is for everyone. I would
pass on the spotlights though. I am sure if they looked good Cadillac would
have put them on there in the first place.
