Cadillac Takes On BMW With Its Sporty CTS

2014 CTS at Les Stanford CadillacThe third generation version of the Cadillac CTS debuts with the 2014 model and if you love technology, you’ll be thrilled about the gadget-intensive interface. The car has every imaginable safety feature available, including a heads-up display, low speed crash avoidance and systems that automate parking and even minimize blind spots.

And the high-tech extras also extend to the mechanics of the mid-sized luxury car. Specialized shock absorbers keep passengers comfortable on any terrain and the drive is warned of problems with the vehicle thanks to a seat alarm that gently vibrates an alert.

The new CTS is four inches longer, but the additional length doesn’t affect the car’s sharp handling. It’s easy park, easy to get in and out of and has a lot more interior space than a rival BMW midsize model.

The CTS is a lot of fun to drive. The rear-wheel drive gives the car a solid and speedy feel and even the basic model has enough performance for most drivers. But if you want a bit extra, the optional V8 edition provides near-sports car speeds in a car that would look perfectly comfortable being used in a car pool.

There are other cars on the market in a similar price range, including the new BMW midsize sedan. But none of them are as much fun to drive or offer this perfect mix of performance and comfort.  See for yourself with a test drive at Les Stanford Cadillac today!
