2010 Cadillac CTS-V sedan

Matt Tierney

The stick-shift CTS-V coupe that we had in the office recently was great fun, but the V sedan is certainly no slouch either. And its increased practicality almost makes up for its decreased sexiness (although I think the sedan might look a bit meaner). That lovely exhaust note and the mountains of horsepower are quick to bring a smile. The paddle buttons to manually control the transmission aren't all that satisfying, but when left in regular mode or bumped over to the Sport setting, the automatic trans does very nice work indeed. The steering is excellent, too, and I love the optional Alcantara-covered wheel.

This driver's seat is among the most comfortable car seats I've ever sat in, which is ironic because the vastly overstuffed seats in the regular CTS are some of the worst ones on the market today, in my opinion. The V's optional Recaro seats are super supportive and grippy, with just the right amount of padding and side bolstering. Like those in the CTS Sport Wagon we experienced recently, though, the driver's seat felt a bit loose. Weird...
