I like manual transmissions. This is the first car where I am glad to have an automatic - an 8 speed silky smooth automatic. Paired with a peppy V-6 engine that uses regular gas this car is a blast to drive. Love all he gadgets in the premium trim level. Love the brown interior. Love the metallic black exterior. Love the 19 inch wheels. The handling is awesome. The CUE system deserves the critiques, but it is workable and after time it becomes second nature. I have leased 3 cars in a row. I bought a 2 year old car with plans to run it 10 years. So far I am very happy with that decision.

Germans Let Caddy Catch Up

Let's be clear: My Audi A8L, 2009 model was a stellar car. It did everything right and looked damn good doing it. At nearly 110,000 miles, I was faced with two - three garage visits per year @ $1500 a pop... or trade in my Black Beauty. So I drove the A6. The 5 series. The E Class. I was ready to sign for an E550 when I realized the dealer significantly and intentionally misrepresented the extended warranty so I stormed out in a huff. What's that? A Cadillac dealer just down the street? Aw, hell, let's see what they have. Let me say the CT6 is drop-dead gorgeous... but bigger than I need. The XTS was just OK. The CTS4? Perfect size. Armed with the V6 and Performance Package, this car has virtually everything I need to drive safely, quickly, and confidently. If ever a car had a sweet spot, the chassis of this car is it. Perfectly balanced, it is on rails when accelerating, cornering or braking. The driving dynamics are the total package .... you will want to clip apexes all day. The interior is every bit as inviting and coddling as the A8L. I like CUE, and it does have it's little niggles. But overall it's an excellent system and it adds to the driving experience. What is superior on this car: ergonomics, Head-Up Display, wipers, headlamp dispersion and Intellibeam, handling, styling. What to nit-pick: acceleration is not RIGHT NOW. Nav system not intuitive, it sure helps if you have a passenger to assist. Otherwise you get all this and on regular unleaded, too!!

After purchasing a 2016 BMW X3 35i and completely being disappointed in it, this car is complete 180 degrees. I purchased a used 2014 CTS Vsport premium that just came off a lease. With under 25K in miles and half the warranty and free maintenance left this car it was a deal from a new one. I have to say they are a bit pricey new, but there are usually some good incentives out. With that, I have to say this is an amazing car. The interior is what a luxury car should be. Nice materials and everything feels solid and well build. Seats are comfortable and driving position is just right. I just don't understand why all the auto critics hate the CUE system. I think it works just fine. No system is perfect, but other than the volume control being slow sometimes, everything else works fine. Handling and acceleration are outstanding. The car is quick and corners like it is on rails. Usually good handling comes at the expense of ride quality. Magnetic ride control has master these two feats. GM has really knocked it out of park with this car. It is sleeper. It gives you all the comfort of a luxury car with the performance of sports car. This is the perfect balance between the two. Given the fact I have a bit a lead foot, it is returning 19 MPG on average. This is not bad.

Fun Fun fun

I've owned my '14 CTS 3.6 Premium for a year now and can clearly judge this car. Pros - incredible handling for a sedan, very solid acceleration for NA V6, GREAT braking, impeccable interior (good or better than ANY other mid lux in class hands down) Cons - performance is good, not great (understand it's not the VSport, however), resale value is AWFUL (was intrigued by ATS-V and dealership was going to barely pay off and I got an incredible deal on car...VERY disappointing. Lastly, the sound of the exhaust leaves something to be desired... Overall this car is absolutely fantastic. Handles, drives and feels like a very well put together sporty mid-size luxury and clearly is at level of MB E350 level or BMW 5 series...tested both and CTS beat both out in nearly every level. This Cadillac "move" is only going to get better and I'm excited as I hope I never am interested in a german car again. If I could buy the new CTS-V it would be mine but the price is Porche 911 Turbo level...yikes. Caddy, well done and worth the buy for anyone considering a mid-size luxury sedan. Great car and many people are impressed by the car's beauty and style.

Absolutely love this car

I bought my all-wheel drive CTS last year (2015) - it was a 2014 model year that was still on the lot, so very happy with the deal. For the past 15 years I drove only German cars, BMW and Volkswagen. The pros and cons for the CTS: Pros: --It manages the amazing trick of feeling substantial while also being light and agile. Comparing the aluminum body of this car (including doors and trunk) to a BMW 5-series steel body, you realize how much fat and bloat you're carrying around with the BMW. It shows up especially in the handling of the CTS... it's an absolute racehorse, and a lean and agile one. Yet the doors close with a very satisfying "thud," same as you find on the German cars. --Love the exterior design and (almost all) of the interior... it's amazing. Very sensual and aggressive, sleek. --On the highway, the open road, it handles better than a 5 series BMW. Great sound dampening, great control. Just a heck of a car to drive. --Some people complain about the CUE entertainment system, but I actually find it pretty simple to use. It's a million times easier to use than the old "I-Drive" systems on the BMW. --The materials used in the car, the leathers and wood trim, etc., are all top notch. I was recently inside a BMW M5 - which cost over $100k - and the BMW didn't have anything nicer in terms of interior materials. --On the inside of the driver's door is a round sticker which you won't find on any BMW, Audi, Lexus, or Mercedes sedan - that sticker says "Made in Michigan, USA". And as someone who cares about our country and our workers, that's the ultimate status symbol. When Detroit makes a killer car, you can feel great about buying it for a lot of reasons, including where it's made. Cons: --The CTS heat seater heats up a little bit slowly and doesn't get the seat very hot, even at max temperature. The seat heaters on my German cars would burn your tail if you left them on too high / too long. As someone living in the Midwest I'd prefer a hotter and quicker seat heater. (The heated steering wheel does heat up quick and hot, however). --I'm not in love with the design of the steering wheel - could be a little simpler and more elegant looking. But other than that, and a very small Onstar button panel on the ceiling, the rest of the interior is BEAUTIFUL. It's sleek and tight and very well put together. --I would physical buttons which allow you to adjust direction where the air flows in the ventilation system (to feet, to windshield, etc.). The CTS has buttons which only appear on the screen if you increase/decrease the volume of air flow. Or you can go through multiple screens to adjust it. Same with AC... there's no physical button to press for AC... there are other ways to get AC to come out, which show up on the screen, but I prefer to have a direct physical button for it. --At very, very low speeds... like when the car is just rolling forward of its own power at 3 or 4 mph, without pressing the gas, it feels a little torquey and uneven. Living in the city, you often end up kind of rolling forward a bit in traffic or a parking lot. My VW and BMW were more smooth at that super low speed. That's about it... other than that, it's a totally amazing car. I recommend it highly to all my friends, colleagues, and other people. It's a fantastic car and is VERY underrated.

Let's get this straight...

Being an avid enthusiast and owner of my '14 Vsport Prem I have read and viewed about every review article and video on the internet. With some of the reviews, I truly wonder if they are driving the same car I am! So, for the format of this review, I'm going to pick out those things I commonly read with which I disagree - both good and bad. 1. "Fit and finish not as good as German competitors -" This is the one I really don't get at all. People complain of cheap plastic and the like... I honestly don't know where they are getting this from. My car is rock solid - from squeeks and rattles to the feel of the controls. The only thing I've had problems with is that the glove compartment which actually has two latches (!) sometimes only catches one of the latches. But that's it. 2. "CUE is terrible." Cue is designed to be a highly customizable owner experience which for somebody (like a car journalist) who drives the car for a day (or even a week (or even shares the car with other journalists as part of a long term tester)) may find it frustrating. But once you do have it set up and understand how to get to things, it's really a very well designed system. You can get to most of the things you need from the steering wheel and view your changes in the instrument pod (as opposed to the middle screen) which I would much prefer to having to reach for a joystick and look to the middle screen every time. With that said, despite being able to do most things from the steering wheel, finger prints are still a problem as noted by many, especially if you have a frequent passenger who doesn't like your music (Zoe!!!) and it would be nice to know what the temp controls are set at without having to tap and return on the screen. 3. "The touch sensitive buttons are unrepsonsive." ... like the slider volume control. This is just patently not true. The metallic guides for proper finger placement are very useful. I use these buttons many times a day and have never been frustrated by them. 4. "Doesn't have features that a similar model from the German three would have." This is laughable. For every feature the Cadillac doesn't have at a price level, it provides 10 others that the competition doesn't have. 5. "The interior is tacky." Nope. It's awesome. Its just not 80's vintage matte black with random dials, buttons and switches all over the place [sarcasm]. Most of the interior is leather and natural wood. I mean for God's sake, THE HORN ON MY STEERING WHEEL is made of LEATHER! I love it! Now the bad... 1. "Incredible power train!" While the car is crazy fast, the engine can feel a little choppy showing its V6-ness through the rev band if you wind it out. The throttle is WAY too sensitive and the transmission takes a lot of getting used to and even then some of the shifts are a bit abrupt. You'll get used to it but until then you and your passengers will have some sore necks! :) 2. "Incredible ride and handling!" Oh yes it does! ... at least after you change the tires from the PZeros that it comes with. Those things are made of cement! 3 "Turns a lot of heads." Sadly, most people want to see the German luxury car badge. I think my car looks very cool but I'm surrounded by BMWs and you know those guys aren't too forthcoming with compliments on American cars. All and all, I love my car! It's fast, comfortable and the styling is so cool (inside and out), it's unbelievable!

Cadillac IS back like never before

OK. I grew up lusting after BMW's 3 & 5 series, and love what Audi has done with itself over the past several years. I am not your typical Cadillac buyer by any stretch of the imagination. I love Formula 1, soccer ( football everywhere else) and any auto sport with the exclusion of NASCAR. Having said that, I have always kept an open mind all things automotive. I regularly test drive cars from numerous manufactures, and judge cars by their merits, not brand reputation. So when I wanted a performance sedan, I tested all of them. The CTS v Sport is, hands down, the best handling sport sedan period. Not BMW, Jag, Lexus.. nothing. The quality, feel and finish is excellent. Drive it!

I love this car! every angle unique and turns heads everywhere I go. The handling was the biggest surprise when first driving, it's feels light and responsive around corners. I've had many cars over the years and driven the BMW's, MB and Audi and I think the CTS takes the cake in looks for sure, a close second would be MB in my opinion.

I comparison shopped/drove quite a bit before buying this car in June 2014. Handling and the engine performance are superb--better than the E550 and 550i. The interior may be a smidge behind the Germans in terms of fit/finish, but it is a minimal difference. The CUE system isn't intuitive, and I'd prefer just knobs and a straightforward information management system. It took me about three days to feel like I had the hang of CUE. My car has the upgraded Kona wood interior, which is absolutely beautiful; I don't know that I'd pay for it, however, if not for the $6000 in incentives GM offered ($3000 rebate + $3000 "conquest" cash) and dealer's willingness to negotiate.

Thoroughly pleased

I have always been indifferent towards Cadillac cars. I have never found them all that exciting. This car has intrigued me since it was introduced earlier in the year. I was in the market for a mid-size luxury car stepping up from an Audi A4, and after comparing BMW, Audi, Mercedes, and Cadillac, this is what I landed on. Obviously this is subjective, but I think the styling is absolutely stunning. The drive is very engaging when you want it to be and extremely comfortable when commuting. From my experience of riding and driving multiple Cadillac cars in the past this is the first time I've ever been compelled to purchase a cadillac car myself -- at 29 yrs of age.

The best Caddy yet!

I traded on my '08 CTS 3.6 performance for a '14 CTS 3.6 Luxury with options. I absolutely loved the '08 and this one is even better. The interior materials are well done, rich and luxurious. Car rides very solid, much quieter cabin. Loaded will all sorts of technology. Upon test drive the 2.0T 4 cylinder 6 speed was plenty powerful, packed a punch and will be adequate for most drivers. I chose the 6 cyl 8 speed as was used to and should make driving even more fun.
