Competing with German and Japanese luxury isn’t an easy task. The 2017 Cadillac CTS has a ton to offer, and a reasonable sticker to match. We have five reasons to experience the fun-to-drive CTS.

Powerful Performance

The CTS will really win you over once you sit in the driver seat. Standard is a 2.0-liter 268-horsepower turbocharged 4-cylinder, however you can also upgrade to a 3.6-liter 335-hp V6. Our V-Sport trim level has the top dog, the twin turbo V6 rated at a fun and powerful 420 hp.

Reassuring Safety

Fast, powerful cars need great safety features. Parents will be glad to know there is a Teen Driver safety feature. You can also add some safety packages that offer innovative technology. Most buyers should also be glad to know the CTS earned a 5-star overall government crash test rating. See the 2018 Cadillac CTS models for sale near you


The CTS is sharp all the way around. Standard on the CTS are heated side mirrors and 17-inch alloys, even Brembo brakes come standard. The high-performance V-Sport trim level boasts 18-in alloys. Those seeking something unique will want to check out the available Carbon Black package, which has sporty performance-inspired touches.


Cadillac offers quite a few packages and options with the CTS. The V-Sport trim level already comes loaded up with performance brakes and a sport-tuned suspension. There is also available adaptive cruise control, a self-parking system, ambient interior lighting and 20-way adjustable front seats.

Exciting Drive

This Cadillac really shines through tight turns and corners, as it has a near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution. Ready for some fun? Put the mode selector in Sport and paddle shift. The CTS does have available all-wheel drive, however the V-Sport is only available with rear-wheel drive.

Autotrader Says

The CTS has smart technology; it’s powerful and luxurious. It’s time you experience the sophisticated 2017 Cadillac CTS.
