Why the 2014 Cadillac CTS Matters:
The 2014 Cadillac CTS is the third and final piece (flagship notwithstanding) of the luxury brand’s recent sedan restructuring. The new Cadillac CTS slots in between the compact ATS and the full-size XTS – both introduced last year – and it rides on a new, slightly larger platform to help it face off against mid-size rivals from BMW and Audi on more event terms. Make no mistake, however: Cadillac did not merely ape the dimensions of its European competitors but rather worked to create an alternative premium car family for those of the more domestic bent. In addition to its larger dimensions, the 2014 Cadillac CTS also gains a pair of new engine options and a new high performance trim.
