2006 Cadillac CTS Review Summaries

What reviewers liked most about the Cadillac CTS

  • While the automatic is a gem of a transmission, it's the manual that makes for a rare treat in this Cadillac, since it has been nearly 20 years since a manual tranny has seen the inside of a Caddy.

    - AutoWeek
  • The stiff chassis and well-tuned suspension work brilliantly together, delivering plenty of feedback without ever feeling harsh or uncomfortable.

    - Edmunds.com
  • The steering accuracy and the feeling of guiding precision machinery really comes through loud and clear, whether you're driving on the standard 16-inch tires or on the 17-inch tires that come with the Luxury Performance package.

    - New Car Test Drive
  • Sight lines and reaches to all controls are easy, and there's generous room in the rear afforded by a 113.4-in. wheelbase.

What reviewers liked least about the Cadillac CTS

  • Its steering felt a bit slow to turn in, and the shifter was sloppy to operate.

    - AutoWeek
  • If Cadillac wants to steal customers away from BMW and Audi, it's going to need a more polished cabin than this.

    - Edmunds.com
  • However, with only 220 horsepower on tap, not reachable until 6000 rpm, and 218 foot-pounds of torque available at best, it will not thrill any driver who has had previous experience in a German or Japanese V6 of the same displacement.

Cadillac CTS Comparisons

  • Although intended to compete in the entry-level luxury sport sedan segment against cars like the BMW 3 Series, the CTS is actually 2 inches longer than BMW's larger 5 Series sedan.

    - Edmunds.com
  • Its slalom speed of 63.4 mph nearly equals the BMW's (63.8) and has the LS (at 59.8) tripping over cones trying to keep up.

    - Road & Track

Best one-liner about the Cadillac CTS

  • Yes, that's right, it's a Cadillac with a manual-transmission option. What is going on here?

    - Car and Driver
  • When's the last time you looked at a Cadillac and uttered "Wow" over something other than the window sticker?
