Blending all-American style with European-inspired handling, the Cadillac CTS has been a popular choice with luxury sedan consumers for more than a decade. Within that period, there have been three generations. Despite shortcomings in terms of interior design and quality, the first CTS is still a fair choice for a used luxury sedan.

World-Class HandlingThere's a certain level of undeniable refinement that you'll get when driving a Cadillac, but the CTS may be on another level completely. Indeed, the Cadillac CTS is imbued with top flight steering and handling mechanics, providing the driver with excellent composure and stability when taking the vehicle through tight turns at high rates of speed. In short, you'll be hard pressed to find a car that handles better than the Cadillac CTS.
Available Turbocharged V6 OptionStandard on the CTS is a turbocharged four-cylinder, but it's admittedly going to give you less bang for your buck compared to the available V6 engine options the CTS has. For 2016 CTS models, the newly-designed 3.6-liter, 335 horsepower V6 is paired with a new eight-speed transmission. For even more power and performance, the CTS also comes with a 3.6-liter V6, which is capable of cranking out 420 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque.
Luxurious InteriorThe refinement you'll find on a Cadillac doesn't stop in the way the vehicle handles. Edmunds called the CTS's interior sophisticated, luxurious, and rendered in rich materials, exuding tremendous craftsmanship and impressive tech features. Up front, passengers have plenty of room to make themselves comfortable for those long road trips.
Fuel EconomyThe fuel economy available on the four-cylinder version of the CTS achieves an EPA-estimated 25 mpg combined (21 mpg city/31 mpg highway) with rear-wheel drive and 22 mpg combined (19 mpg city/28 mpg highway) with all-wheel drive. Compared to other similarly outfitted four-cylinders in the segment, that's not exactly setting the bar. By comparison, the Audi A6 gets 28 mpg combined.
Rear Passenger SpaceThough the room upfront for passengers is spacious and inviting, the room in back is less so. By midsize standards, the rear seat room afforded by the Cadillac CTS is only modest.
Trunk SpaceWhen you think of a luxury sport sedan, you may be inclined to think that, with that luxury billing, the vehicle itself must offer luxury accommodations across the board. And while the CTS certainly lives up to luxury expectations overall, the trunk space available is somewhat meager. At 13.7 cubic feet (large enough to fit three bags of golf clubs), the CTS's trunk is small for the segment.
