2013 Cadillac CTS Interior :
The 2013 Cadillac CTS sedan comes standard with Bluetooth, satellite radio, dual-zone climate control and an eight-speaker Bose stereo. Optional features include an upgraded stereo, push-button start, a backup camera, a sunroof and navigation.
The automotive press is impressed with the interior build quality and luxurious materials in the 2013 Cadillac CTS. They also like the CTS’ user-friendly infotainment system and stereo, which earns points for fantastic sound quality. While the navigation system has a large, clearly legible screen that test drivers also like, one reviewer says that programming routes into the system can be difficult.
Standard features for the 3.0 Luxury include 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, heated mirrors, keyless entry, remote ignition, cruise control, automatic wipers, dual-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, heated eight-way power front seats (with two-way lumbar adjustment), driver memory functions, leather upholstery, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, interior accent lighting, OnStar emergency communications, Bluetooth phone connectivity and an eight-speaker Bose sound system with a six-CD changer, an auxiliary audio jack and satellite radio.
2013 Cadillac CTS Exterior :
2013 Cadillac CTS features a pleasing angular theme to match its exterior edginess. Soft-touch materials are plentiful, accented by tasteful wood trim. The optional navigation system emerges from the top of the dash and retracts almost fully, leaving a small section visible as a touchscreen display for the audio system a smart and elegant alternative solution to having a separate control panel. We also appreciate that Cadillac provides a redundant control knob for scrolling through iPod or satellite radio menus. Doing so simply with a touchscreen can be frustrating and distracting.
Unfortunately, the interior also comes with its fair share of flaws. Many find the driving position awkward because of slightly offset pedals, a low-mounted seat and compromised knee room due to the sweeping center stack. Overall comfort is also hampered by flat and stiff seatbacks. Thick rear pillars not only make the backseat feel a bit claustrophobic, but the resulting rearward visibility is notably poor, forcing the driver to rely heavily on the optional rearview camera when maneuvering in reverse.
Standard safety features for the 2013 Cadillac CTS include antilock disc brakes, traction control, stability control, active front head restraints, front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. Also standard is OnStar, which includes automatic crash notification, on-demand roadside assistance, an emergency button, stolen vehicle locator and active intervention, and remote door unlock.
In government crash tests, the CTS received the best possible rating of five stars in the overall, frontal and side crash categories. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety testing, the sedan was awarded the best rating of “Good” in the frontal-offset, side and roof strength tests.
In Edmunds brake testing, a CTS 3.6 Premium came to a stop from 60 mph in 117 feet, which is better than average. With the 19-inch wheels and summer tires, that distance drops to 109 feet, which is about average for similarly equipped cars.
2013 Cadillac CTS Engine :
Depending on model, the CTS is available in Base, Luxury, Performance, and Premium trims. The 2013 CTS comes standard with either 17- or 18-inch alloy wheels and 19-inch polished alloy wheels are optional. The standard engine is a four-cam, 3.0-liter V6 with direct injection and variable valve-timing generating 270 horsepower. A direct injected 3.6-liter V6, now with 318 horsepower, is available. The transmission is a six-speed automatic, and a variable-torque full-time all-wheel-drive system can be added to either engine. With seating for four the CTS Coupe includes the 3.6 liter engine as standard equipment. The Sedan and Sport Wagon include seating for five.
The 2013 Cadillac CTS comes with a choice of two V6 engines, though most reviewers suggest avoiding the base 3.0-liter engine and opting for the larger 3.6-liter V6, which offers more power and similar fuel economy. A six-speed automatic transmission comes standard, and test drivers say that it’s refined and well-matched to the CTS’ engine. If you need even more power, the high-performance Cadillac CTS-V comes with a powerful, supercharged V8 engine and an upgraded suspension. The CTS is available as a coupe, sedan or the CTS Sport Wagon, which is reviewed separately. All-wheel drive is optional. Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 18/27 mpg city/highway, which is bit low for the class. While reviewers appreciate the CTS’ precise steering and ample power with the optional 3.6-liter V6, a few say that the CTS is neither as nimble as sport sedans like the BMW 3-Series, nor as comfort-tuned as cars like the Lexus ES 350.
