As we learned earlier this month, during our First Drive of the new CTS on the West Coast, the 2014 Cadillac CTS possesses the luxury and sporting credentials to be taken seriously as a major player in a market typically dominated by the BMW 5-series and Mercedes-Benz E-class.
Now in its third generation, the CTS has morphed from a style leader for Cadillac to a standout in the segment. Substantially larger in most ways than the sedan it replaces, now that the smaller ATS sedan is an integral part of the brand’s lineup, the ’14 CTS is now able to back up the boldness suggested by its styling.
Autobytel had the opportunity for a second look at the CTS, in its three engine variants, last week in New York City. In this review, we’re focusing on the two ends of the CTS’s performance spectrum: its turbocharged four-cylinder and twin-turbocharged six-cylinder engines.
