Expert Review

By Kelley Blue Book Editorial Staff

Editor's Overview

After a less-than-enthusiastic reception, the Cadillac ELR plug-in extended-range coupe returns for 2016 with a raft of improvements and a roughly $10,000 price cut. While its sophisticated gas-electric powertrain is based on the far less expensive Chevrolet Volt, the ELR has been modified for better performance and a slight increase in electric driving range to 39 miles.

It is a very nice reliable car.

It is a very nice car that has leather seats, and a sat nav system. My kids love it because it is so comfortable. I wish that they didn't cancel the model
