The 2019 Cadillac CTS as one of the most cherished sports sedans keeps getting better with each passing year, and it has left many luxury sedans behind when it was about offering luxury features and joyous rides. When we saw the 2019 Cadillac CTS for the first time in the showroom at a new and used Cadillac dealer near Barstow, it instantly impressed us with its sporty crisp design with vertical LED headlights and its exhaust ports though aggressive added to its overall handsome proportions. As we stepped in, the interior with its interestingly curved angles made a delightful atmosphere and we felt cozy and warm in no time at all.
The Driving Force
Cadillac has been generous with this CTS model, especially on the power front. To make its lineup a sure shot to the large market demands, it has configured three engine options, that includes a turbocharged inline-4 engine making 268-horsepower, a 335-hp V-6 engine with the potential of making 420-horsepower and a twin-turbo V-6 one that scores a rip-roaring 640-hp. But the surprise comes with the only option made available for the transmission which is the 8-speed automatic, one which marks its way with clean shifts and swift response.
The 2019 Cadillac CTS continues to wear the same sheet metal body that is wrapped with some crisp lines running across making it look one of the most handsome cars in its class. The shape it wears now is sleek with angles and curves enhancing its sharp looks while the tall head and taillights issues a Cadillac signature on the road.
Inside the cabin, the atmosphere is quiet and composed as a single trim piece consistent of wood, leather and soft-touch plastics cover the entire cabin across the dashboard and the center console of the 2019 Cadillac CTS. Things take an interesting turn when Cadillac offers you a two-tone leather package for its 2019 CTS model. The best part however, about the interior of this luxury crossover from Cadillac, is the pair of two massive display screens, among which one is for the gauges and the other one is for the sake of entertaining the rear seat passengers. There is also an option to go with the 12.3-inch cluster which looks sharper and is easier to read, while the 8.0-inch touchscreen has gone more popular with the consumers.
After a test drive conducted at a renowned Cadillac dealer near me, we could safely say that this 2019-year model of the Cadillac CTS is a near-super sedan that can pick up a speed of 60 mph in only 4.6 seconds. Our jaw dropped when it could accelerate at the maximum speed of 170 mph and came to know that still there’s more if you climb higher the trim. The four-cylinder V-6 engine powered CTS behaves naturally-aspirated on roads and are available both with all-wheel drive, while the V-Sport trim can only be driven with a rear-wheel drive. When it comes to handling and maneuvering the car, the CTS proves itself with the strongest points in its class, that gets its additional support from wither an 18- or 19-inch Pirelli tires, with a quicker steering response, a swifter track mode, from a magnetic suspension and limited-slip differential with bigger front brakes that escalates the overall performance index.
