The 2019 CTS has been selected as one of the greatest American performance sedans driven ever, that comes from the house of Cadillac. This strong-performing sedan from Cadillac has been at par with its toughest European rivals even at its base, while the upper trim models like Luxury and V-Sport trims leave them far behind when it comes to road manners and handling.
According to the users and experts whom we met at the Cadillac dealer Lancaster, the 2019 Cadillac CTS has been considered the best luxury sedan as well, apart from being the best performing one. All these accolades do raise the bar of our curiosity and expectations higher, and we couldn’t hold back our temptation of driving it. What we experienced in our test drive will always remain as one of the most memorable ones, but that also inspired us to share with you all.
The Crispy Design
The 2019 Cadillac CTS sedan did catch our fancy at the very first glimpse with its crisp design that highlights the large sized vertically aligned LED headlights, handful of smartly designed exhaust ports, and all these crafted in a shape and size that meets all the curves and angles in the right proportion.
The cabin of every 2019 model of the Cadillac CTS sedan will comfort its occupants instantly with its highly supportive, softly bolstered thrones. The soft touch materials will make you feel rich while a 12.3-inch display and an 8.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment that come integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto heighten the value of its instrument cluster.
The NHTSA has given the 2019 Cadillac CTS sedan a five star rating for its overall safety measures. However, one gets to secure his CTS sedan with automatic emergency braking only after choosing the V-Sport and Premium Luxury models, while Cadillac offers safety features like forward-collision warnings and blind-spot monitors into all of the CTS trim models. A rearview mirror with a camera adds up more visibility and safety behind the car.
The 2019 edition of Cadillac CTS draws power from a trio of engine combinations, that starts with a 268-horsepower making turbocharged inline-4 one, the next increase the horsepower to a 335-hp from a promising V-6 engine, and the topmost trim V-Sport gains a horsepower of 420 units from a twin-turbo V-6 engine. There is also a rip-roaring CTS-V trim that moves with a 640-hp from a V-6 engine. The V-Sport trim model can reach the speed of 60 mph from a 0 in just 4.7 seconds, which is a record usually achieved by the super sports sedan model category.
We were told at the Cadillac Lancaster dealership that Cadillac has made only one transmission variety available, which is an 8-speed automatic one that can deliver clean shifts on all models. Every 2019 CTS trim model can be ordered as all-wheel drive except the V-Sport. Driving any 2019 CTS model will leave an impression of a deft handler that tames down the road imperfections wit the help of its adaptive shocks, and consistently keep delivering silky smooth drives.
