2014 Cadillac ELR Reviews

2014 ELR New Car Test Drive


Barely changed from the 2011 Cadillac Converj concept coupe that previewed it, the 2015 Cadillac ELR cuts a dramatic wedge profile with sharp creases, aero-rounded edges, aggressively raked front and rear glass and big 20-inch wheels pushed nearly to the corners of its body. In what has become a Cadillac signature feature, its headlamps and taillamps are finely detailed vertical LED blades. Its door handles are hidden in recesses behind the doors, its battery charge port is on the driver's-side front fender, and lights on its outside mirrors pulse green during charging, then go dark when the process is complete. 


Cadillac has been doing world-class interiors lately, and the ELR's plush, quiet, well-crafted cabin is no exception. Chrome and wood accents, a leather/suede microfiber trimmed steering wheel and a suede microfiber headliner nicely complement its leather-trimmed 2+2 seats. There's even choreographed LED accent lighting and (for some reason) a power-assisted console cup holder cover. 

There's an audio vol.
