Editor's Overview

The 2019 Cadillac CTS is the American alternative to midsize-luxury sedans like the BMW 5 Series and Lexus GS. With its variety of engine choices, taut handling and distinctive design, it is worth considering if you deeply desire a domestic alternative. However, its value proposition and standard features are not strong, and it ultimately faces discontinuation.
