Few people would really call the Cadillac XTS a sleeper, but the 2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport doesn’t boast its capabilities. That’s from the outside, at least, since the XTS Vsport looks pretty much like a regular XTS, except for a slightly different front grille. Autobytel’s Road Test Editor Aaron Gold spent some time with the 2014 XTS Vsport to see if this pumped-up version of the XTS meets expectations. The 2014 Cadillac XTS Vsport is powered by a twin turbo V6 that yields 410 horsepower, but unfortunately, Autobytel’s test drive revealed that the car’s underpinnings aren’t really up to handling that much power. The suspension isn’t strong enough to provide the proper firmness, even though this Cadillac is equipped with the brand’s magnetic controlled suspension system. The flaws in the Cadillac XTS Vsport’s suspension are apparent enough to cast a negative light on the entire driving experience. The cabin is comfortable, though, thanks to one of the best appointed interiors that Cadillac’s accomplished in recent memory. Soft touch materials complement a well crafted fit and finish, which carries over to the roomy and spacious backseat. The driver and front seat passenger get access to the Cadillac CUE infotainment system housed in the center stack, and with a few improvements, the CUE system could set the bar for infotainment systems in terms of positioning and ease of use.
