The ultimate expression of Cadillac’s commitment to performance driving and dramatic design charges into 2012 with the latest CTS Coupe, a Car & Driver 10 Best choice. In the new model year the legendary 2 door CTS Coupe receives a lighter and more powerful version of its 3.6 litre V-6 engine that offers 27 miles per gallon (hwy). A powerful engine is not complete without powerful design and the CTS brings it with an enhanced package of standard and available features.
Virtually unchanged from its original concept vehicle this year’s CTS unveils an updated sculpted shape and concealed, “invisible” auto-touch door handles that accentuate its fresh lines. Center mounted chrome exhaust, and an integrated rear spoiler (available with the Touring Package) add an aggressive yet refined touch to Cadillac’s sports coupe.
On the inside the CTS is just as sleek. The interior of the CTS Coupe emphasizes technical precision through hand-crafted French stitching and many other fine details. The control console utilizes a center stack design and looks as good as it functions in its satin metallic finish. A host of comfort driven technical features are now standard and include a 10 speaker Bose 5.1 cabin surround sound system, Bluetooth phone connectivity, dual zone climate control, power seats and a rear view camera system.
For those looking for the ultimate in on road capabilities, the CTS Coupe is also offered in in a high performance CTS-V model. Its extraordinary power and speed are afforded through its potent 6.2 litre V-8 engine that generates a massive 556 horsepower and 0-60 times of 3.9 seconds. Starting at $64,515 the V Coupe is offered with a 6-speed manual shifter or the Hydra-Matic 6-speed automatic transmission.
