2002 Seville New Car Test Drive
For 2002, the Cadillac Seville adds new features and technology designed to deliver the comfort, safety and performance buyers expect from what has become one of America's best luxury sedans. An Advanced Vehicle Navigation system has a larger screen, incorporates voice recognition technology and covers the entire United States and Canada with a single, in-dash DVD. An XM satellite radio is available. At mid-year, next-generation road-sensing suspension cuts to one millisecond the car's automatic response to changing road conditions.
Adding such new features to its already brilliant acceleration, crisp handling, and Gibraltar stability, the Seville needs to make no apologies to expensive imported sports sedans. This Caddy is just the thing for covering lots of real estate in a big hurry, cruising effortlessly at 80-90 mph like a high-performance sports sedan. At the same time, it's smooth, quiet and comfortable around town.
Two models are available: SLS ($43,524) comes with nearly every luxury feature you can imagine, including Cadillac's heralded StabiliTrak control and is powered by a 4.6-liter Northstar V8 producing 275 horsepower.
STS ($49,080) is the high-performance model. Its engine is tuned to 300 horsepower. STS also adds road-sensing suspension, speed-rated Goodyear Eagle LS in place of the mundane Goodyear Integrity tires, fog lights, and a super-deluxe interior with perforated leather, 14-way power seats, and memory functions for just about everything.
