The car is a little tight for passengers over 6 feet, and rear visibility is poor. In addition, the rear is a mishmash of lines without any meaningful design ethic. Still, this new CTS should prove adept at keeping Cadillac moving forward and gaining on the Germans. (Cadillac)

The CTS also benefits from a lighter curb weight; the V-6 model shed about 100 pounds. This helped the car feel nimble in canyon runs, and it was easy to get a sense of the car’s shifting mass in hard cornering.  (Cadillac)

Higher-end CTS models come with a fully digital dashboard screen that users can customize to show too much information, but the analog layout on lesser models works just fine.  (Cadillac)

The front of the car is one of the more stylish to come out of Detroit in years -- augmented by a square profile, bold brushed-metal grille and headlights that sweep back over the wheel wells. (Cadillac)

Engineers sought to give the CTS the correct proportions for a proper mid-size car, moving the mass back slightly to create a 50-50 weight distribution, considered best for handling.  (Cadillac)
