The Cadillac CTS is back with two fewer doors and gobs more sex appeal.
The CTS Coupe features a track that is a full two inches wider than the Sedan, which adds to its low slung aesthetic.
Up front, the CTS features a large chrome grille and jewel-like headlamps with steerable projectors.
Out back, the CTS features all new bodywork with rear glass that's so steeply raked you'd be forgiven if your mistook the coupe for a liftback.
Cadillac has simplified the CTS Coupe's doors by removing the handles, replacing them with hidden door pop buttons.
The rear end is punctuated by a center exit dual exhaust with angular tips that mirror the coupe's edgy aesthetic.
Our engine bay has been beautified with a $110 underhood appearance package.
The standard transmission on the CTS is a six-speed automatic with manual and sport shift modes. The Performance package adds paddle shifters and the option to swap the whole kit out in favor of a six-speed manual gearbox and a $1,300 price drop.
Our ebony interior was trimmed with wood and chrome accents with a metallic center stack that features an angular theme that reflects the exterior aesthetic.
The center stack is topped with a motorized 8-inch touch screen that can be retracted, leaving only a fraction of the screen visible to display audio source information.
The Cadillac's instrument cluster is understated with white electroluminescent numbers on a black background.
The instrument cluster features a small LCD information display that is controlled with this small bank of buttons located near the steering wheel.
The steering wheel itself falls nicely into the hands with thumb-actuated buttons for audio and phone controls.
Connect an iPod or USB mass storage device to the Cadillac's USB port and the infotainment system will decode the digital audio and display track metadata.
The system will also allow users to browse their devices by folder, artist, album, as well as by other categories.
Audio source and map data can be viewed simultaneously in this split-screen.
The map can also be expanded to a full screen view. Map data is stored on a 40GB hard drive, so browsing and response times are snappy.
The XM satellite radio receiver pulls in audio, as well as traffic and weather data.
Weather data can be organized and viewed in a variety of ways, including forecast, current conditions, and alerts along route.
Destination entry features a predictive text system that blanks out invalid characters as new letters are input.
The infotainment system's hard drive adds a bonus feature that allows users to pause live radio broadcasts. Simply hit the pause button and the stereo will begin to cache up to 20 minutes of audio.
The single optical disc slot supports CD audio and DVD video playback--when the vehicle is parked, of course.
