Looks great but underpowered for its size.

2013 Cadillac CTS Performance Sedan

Overall I am very happy with my Cadillac cts performance sedan. The look is stunning and the feel of the vehicle on the road is exceptional in the turns. There are only two things I feel are lacking. First, I feel it is underpowered with a 6 cylinder engine for the weight of the car. Second, the suspension is a little rough.
