It's hard to believe that the second-generation CTS is already five years old, but like a fine wine it seems to be getting better with age. Three body styles are available -- sedan, coupe, and wagon -- and all can be had in regular CTS form or in ludicrous but intoxicating CTS-V trim. There are two V-6 engines available: a 3.0-liter unit in the sedan and wagon and a highly praised 3.6-liter V-6 available with all three body styles. The 3.6-liter can be found throughout GM's vehicle lineup, and rightfully so -- its power delivery is smooth and linear and it returns good fuel economy. For those who have a need for speed, look to the CTS-V. Using a modified version of the 6.2-liter supercharged V-8 in the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Brembo brakes, nineteen-inch forged aluminum wheels, and adjustable magnetic dampers, it is one of the best cars to come out of Detroit. The tailpipes of the CTS-V -- large, chrome, and center-mounted on the V coupe -- emit a guttural, growling exhaust note that will let passersby know that this is not your father's Cadillac. In any form, the CTS is a credible player in the sport luxury market, thanks to its crisp, distinct design and a level of quality, fit, and finish rarely seen from a domestic automaker. Supple french-stitched leather, soft LED lighting, and intuitive controls live in harmony in the well-crafted cabin. The CTS may not be quite as sharp as its German competition, but the charismatic offering from Cadillac is well worth considering.
