Our 2016 Cadillac CTS-V Review

In our 2016 Cadillac CTS-V review, we evaluate how this sports-luxury sedan fares in performance, features, and style. Since 2003, the Cadillac CTS-V has been competing with highbrow European sedans.

From its racetrack-ready performance to its highly stylish exterior, the all-new 2016 Cadillac CTS-V succeeds, and here’s why.

Power and Performance2016-cts-v-sedan-exterior

With this 2016 model, Cadillac could very well have perfected its luxury-sport sedan. This year’s engine, ripped straight from the commanding Corvette Z06, is a 6.2L V8 that puts out an immense 640 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque. Paired to an 8-speed automatic transmission, this engine improves fuel economy as well, getting an EPA-estimated 14 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.

Looking at suspension, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is 25 percent more rigid and responsive than the previous model. Aluminum construction makes it lighter and more aerodynamic, and it’s an accelerator—it will take you from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds, according to Cadillac.

Whether you’re planning on doing laps on the racetrack or simply want to drive around town, the 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is fabulously fun, rigidly responsive, and seriously smart.

Features and Interior

The 2016 Cadillac CTS-V is something to look at. With 19-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights, LED taillights, and other luxurious features, it’s as sleek on the outside as it is on the inside.

Inside, you’ll find:

  • Leather-trim upholstery
  • Keyless ignition
  • 20-way power front seats
  • Dual-zone climate control
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Telescoping steering column

All of these come standard; in fact, there are no trim levels for this luxury sedan, and only a few available options. For MSRP $92,040, you get a suite of elite luxury features, and our list only scratches the surface.

What about tech? This sedan’s cutting-edge standard tech includes:

  • 4G connectivity with WiFi
  • Wireless charging
  • Apple CarPlay
  • Cadillac User Experience infotainment system
  • 8-inch touchscreen
  • OnStar

And these aren’t just tech staples—this is some of the most groundbreaking technology out there.
