2012 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe Overview
Source: CarGurus

...Cadillac is trying hard to compete with some stout entrants like the BMW M5 and the Mercedes C63 AMG, and while performance is not an issue here – the CTS-V held a record for the fastest lap of a 4-door production sedan at the Nürburgring – the luxury doesn’t always match up. Interior materials aren’t of the same quality of competitors, and there have been continued complaints about the long-distance comfort of both the standard seats and the optional Recaro upgrades. Still, they try hard with a long list of standard features like heated power front leather buckets, dual-zone...

...The optional navigation system emerges from the top of the dash and retracts almost fully, leaving a small section visible as a touchscreen display for the audio system -- a smart and elegant solution to having a separate control panel. This is where the flattering stops, though, as the interior is otherwise filled with compromises and flaws. Outward rear visibility is notably poor, forcing the driver to rely on the rearview camera and blind-spot warning systems. The optional tilt-only sunroof significantly limits front seat headroom even for those of average height. Rear seat passengers must...

...Interior Design and Special Features: First, the bad news: The 2012 CTS-V wagon's interior isn't much different from that of the regular wagon. Now the good news: The CTS already sports one of the nicer passenger compartments in the segment. The overall look is high-class, with an attractive and functional layout for gauges and controls. Materials aren't the best in class, but they're generally high quality and a noticeable improvement over those used in previous Cadillacs. The cabin's most significant shortcoming is the design of the standard front seats, which lack both the comfort and...

...In government crash tests, the regular CTS received the best possible rating of five stars in the overall, frontal and side crash categories. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety testing, the regular sedan was awarded the best rating of "Good" in the frontal-offset, side and roof strength tests. Interior Design and Special Features: First, the bad news: The 2012 CTS-V's interior isn't much different from that of the regular CTS model. Now the good news: The CTS already sports one of the nicer passenger compartments in the segment. The overall look is high-class, with an attractive and...
