2017 Cadillac CTS Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide

The 2017 avatar of Cadillac CTS favors the traditional combination of agility, power and luxury features. However, the ride still suffers from issues like constricted rear seats and an unrefined base engine. Nonetheless, that doesn't stop the ride from being one of the highest-ranking luxury midsize cars. Thanks to the availability of ample space for both passengers and cargo as well as a plethora of family-friendly features make CTS the ideal luxury sedan for families.

Under the hood, the 2017 incarnation of the Cadillac CTS packs a 2.0L Turbo I4 VVT engine. The robust engine is able to produce 268 hp of power and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine is coupled with a responsive 8-speed automatic transmission mode. Maximum rpm available for engine power and torque are 5600 and 3000 rpm, respectively. The V-Sport and V-Sport Premium Luxury trims flaunt a powerful V6 engine.

2017 Cadillac CTS Features

7.8/10

For the year 2017, the Cadillac CTS is available in five trims, namely Base, Luxury, Premium Luxury, V-Sport and V-Sport Premium Luxury. While Rear Wheel Drive is standard, there is an option of All-Wheel-Drive as well which provides more stability and traction.

One also gets to choose from plethora of features between various trims, ranging from 8" diagonal full-color LCD capacitive multi-touch screen, Park Assist Camera, Automatic Parallel Park and Adaptive Cruise Control. While pricing is a critical part, one may feel that the $45,995 price tag for the base trim is slightly hefty.

The top of the line V-Sport Luxury trim is priced at a whopping $70,795. Such a wide price bracket ensures that there is a CTS for everyone who dreams to get one.

Notably, while the Base Trim is available only with the 2.0L turbocharged engine, the Luxury trim can be had with both, the 2.0L and 3.6L engine options. The Premium Luxury, V-Sport and V-Sport Premium Luxury are also available with only one engine option, i.e. 3.6L Twin Turbo V6.

We Recommend

Needless to say, the Luxury trim is the one to opt for. It offers the best of both worlds, power and luxury. One may argue that the twin-turbo 3.6L engine is superior, but it comes at a hefty price tag, and you don't get the option of AWD either. Also, the 2.0L engine is no slouch either, and offers good power, drivability and efficiency as well.
