The new 2015 Cadillac CTS-V is the best choice for those who want the luxury of a sedan, but don’t need a lot of space.
The new CTS, however, doesn’t have as much power as the outgoing CTS but still boasts the most powerful engines ever produced by Cadillac.
It’s available in the regular and Sport trims, and it’s got a 4.4-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine that gets a maximum output of 306kW (350kW on the Sport and 350kW in the Regular) and a claimed 306lb ft (332lb ft on the Regular and 392lb ft in the Sport).
All three trim levels are offered with automatic transmissions and leather-wrapped steering wheels.
The Sport trim adds a heated steering wheel and a more spacious infotainment system with a touchpad.
The regular CTS is still one of the best value cars on the market, especially when you consider its price.
The Regular starts at $56,000 and is available with a base price of $54,990.
The Premium comes with a price tag of $61,000 but is available for an additional $1,995.
The CTS Premium comes standard with a 15.6-inch touchscreen with an 8MP rear camera, a 3.5-inch front-facing camera and a 7MP front-looking camera.
The CTS Sport trim starts at around $72,000, which is $1 less than the CTS Regular.
It comes with the same 15.06-inch display and 4.6L V8 engine as the regular trim, but has a turbocharged 4.2-litres V8 that generates 530kW and gets a claimed 332lb ft.
The Turbocharged version is also available in a base trim of $72; the Premium comes as standard with the Turbocharged engine at $85,000.
The Premium Sport comes with an all-wheel drive system, which makes it easier to drive the car without pulling over to look at your phone.
The only thing missing is a sunroof, which has a six-point adjustable height.
Inside, the CX-5 and CX Sport trim levels come standard with leather seats and a sunshade, which offers an unobstructed view of the rearview mirror.
The regular trim offers a standard six-speaker audio system with eight speakers, but you can upgrade the package to 18 speakers for an extra $1.45 a pop.
The premium version of the CXL comes with 16 speakers and is also standard with an eight-speakers audio system.
There’s also a 3-inch touch screen and a larger 12.3-inch screen with touch controls.
All three models are available in white, black, or grey.
