Cadillac CTS

Cadillac makes a better car than BMW or Mercedes or Lexus or Infiniti, and that car is the 2008 CTS. No other car in the mass market dares so much as this expressive and audacious bit of automotive avant-gardism. -- Dan Neil (KAREN TAPIA-ANDERSEN, Los Angeles Times)

Just park the CTS next to the competition [from Mercedes-Benz and BMW]. In this big-numbers segment -- entry luxury sport-sedans -- there is a distinct proclivity to play it safe. -- Dan Neil (KAREN TAPIA-ANDERSEN, Los Angeles Times)

The direct-injection engine puts out 273 pound-feet of torque, enough to launch the car to 60 mph in under 6 seconds. -- Dan Neil (Karen Tapia-Andersen, Los Angeles Times)

I especially like the personal climate controls that live in the console rail by the dash, and the premium French stitching (real thread!) on the leather-like dash and door panels. -- Dan Neil (KAREN TAPIA-ANDERSEN, Los Angeles Times)

The steering ratio is very quick, with precise but abrupt turn-in. The steering has moderate heft but the road feedback (the sense of what the tires are doing) is superb. -- Dan Neil (KAREN TAPIA-ANDERSEN, Los Angeles Times)

The CTS’ flush-fit and frameless windshield and back window, the laser-brazed roof and other subtleties of machining and manufacturing wrap the CTS in a single futuristic surface. -- Dan Neil (KAREN TAPIA-ANDERSEN, Los Angeles Times)
