From German to American...

2010 Cadillac CTS Caddy Convert - Upland, CA 01/30/2011

Since 1999 I've owned three German-made vehicles for their styling, reputation, reliability, performance, and, of course, their 'presence' in the market. Well all of that has changed for me. The moment I sat in my new CTS, it was love at first sight - well, first 'sit'! The interior amenities and features rival high-end European luxury vehicles, but without the high price tag. The test drive was amazing. Excellent acceleration, handling, and response to my 'commands'. The exterior styling conveys a message of luxury, sophistication, but also, performance. The side profile of the CTS demands attention and respect from those other vehicles on the road. Through it's sexy curves and masculine headlights this car suits both the male and female driver. Needless to say, I love this car and I will follow my mom's example of only owning Cadillacs (mom has owned several since 1977). I look forward to a long relationship with my new CTS.

It's awesome

2010 Cadillac CTS Overview

The 2010 Cadillac CTS has much to offer drivers, including a strong engine in the base model for a better, more enjoyable driving experience. With plenty of space on the inside and a lot of luxury features and options, the CTS is a good choice for someone who wants luxury and fuel economy, and wants to get both of those things at a fair price.

2010 Cadillac CTS History

For the 2010 model year, the CTS has been upgraded to provide even more of what drivers of a luxury car are looking for. Cadillac used an already great choice for a car, and simply improved upon the points where drivers had found the car falling short in the past. That made for a better all-around choice and included more value. With the CTS, you can expect:

  • A cabin that is roomier than the competition
  • Plenty of great gadgets to enjoy
  • All-wheel drive as an available option
  • Handling that feels secure and capable
  • A new base engine with better fuel economy and more power
  • The available Eco Lux Collection, to increase fuel economy

How It Drives

The 2010 Cadillac CTS is quick and responsive, but it isn't quite as nimble as some of its competition. The sport suspension is very firm, which can be a pro or a con depending on the personal preference of the driver. Especially with all-wheel drive, the Cadillac feels very sure-footed, and is able to cruise down a mountain road or wind through traffic on city streets with ease and class. Drivers will appreciate the capable feeling the steering provides, and all the luxury they are surrounded with, along with the higher level of power in the new choice for a base engine.

Used 2010 Cadillac CTS Value

When compared to similar cars such as the BMW 3 Series, Infiniti G37, Acura TL SH-AWD, and Audi A4, along with the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, the 2010 Cadillac CTS doesn't quite have the same value and will generally be priced lower if all other factors are relatively equal. There are comparable cars when it comes to luxury that can also be purchased for a lower price, like the Hyundai Genesis. But many people appreciate American luxury cars, and any driver who is looking for that option would be wise to take a careful look at the 2010 CTS. It's a great car for the money, overall.

Design & Performance

The sleek and elegant look of the 2010 Cadillac CTS turns heads, but that sleek design comes with some difficulty seeing out the rear window and a driving position that can be awkward. On the performance side, the CTS offers:

  • Two different V6 engines to choose from
  • A six-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive standard
  • All-wheel drive and an automatic transmission available with either engine choice
  • A zero-to-60 time of 6.7 seconds with the larger engine

Powertrain & Engine

With two engine choices, the 2010 Cadillac CTS gives drivers options for more power or more fuel economy, while still balancing both of those attributes well. The 3.0L V6 offers 270 hp, and the 3.6L V6 comes in with 304 hp. Fuel economy is very similar for both engines, with the smaller V6 only providing a combined average of one mpg better economy than the larger engine. Coupled with either the manual or automatic transmission, and the rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, this is a car that can give the driver plenty of confidence when a little extra power is needed.

Body Style & Interior Comfort

While the rear view provides weak visibility, the CTS is sleek, sophisticated, and elegant. The interior of the 2010 Cadillac CTS provides the driver and passengers:

  • Wood accents, soft-touch components, and tasteful trim
  • A retractable navigation screen that also offers the display for the touchscreen audio system
  • A swooping center stack that is very attractive but does cut into the available knee room
  • A roomy 13.6 cubic foot trunk, but a narrow opening to load cargo

Overall, the 2010 Cadillac CTS has much going for it. The car is attractive, well built, and delivers on power and performance. For anyone looking to buy an American luxury car, this could be just the vehicle they were waiting for.
