The Good The Cadillac CTS Coupe is as good looking on the outside as it is luxurious on the inside. The coupe offers a full-featured infotainment system with hard-drive-based navigation; DVD playback with 5.1 surround; XM Satellite Radio, weather, and traffic; iPod and MP3 playback; and an innovative ability to pause live radio broadcasts for up to 20 minutes.
The Bad Bluetooth and OnStar hands-free calling systems tend to butt heads, and neither is particularly well implemented. Advanced driver aids such as blind-spot warning are not available.
The Bottom Line The 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe is a sporty ride with impressive performance to back up its good looks, and economy and cabin tech that may surprise you.
2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe
Cadillac has already impressed us with the CTS sedan and high-powered CTS-V; now the CTS is back with a sport-tuned suspension, a sleeker profile, and two fewer doors. With looks that kill and a full 2 inches wider track than the sedan, the 2011 Cadillac CTS Coupe makes sporty pretenses, and in the Premium trim it packs an impressive cabin technology package.
Style and performance
If we had to describe our Black Raven with Ebony leather interior CTS Coupe's aesthetic, we'd call it the Cadillac of Batmobiles...or the Batmobile of Cadillacs. Either way, it's an imposing, low-slung bit of kit. From the A-pillar forward, the CTS Coupe is fairly similar to the sedan, punctuated by large prismatic adaptive headlamps and a wide pentagonal chrome grill. It relies on angles and hard edges for its character rather than smooth curves we've come to expect from modern vehicular design.
