Cadillac CTS is the new top-end model for the renowned car-making brand from the United States.  The CTS Vsport model is now one of the most favorite choice of car lovers, which is a high performing road machine and also features highly appreciable style and comfort components. With all these on offer, the Cadillac CTS is now topping on the charts of automobile magazines worldwide.

Cadillac is a sub-division of the most renowned US-based General Motors (GM) Company. The brand is globally known as being the manufacturer of top-end luxury vehicles at limited numbers. The major markets of Cadillac now are the United States, Canada, as well as China. The Cadillac-branded cars are also sold in 34 more markets globally through the dealers and in year 2012, Cadillac's sales in the US market alone were about 149,782 vehicles.

As far as the Cadillac’s new CTS has been considered, things are on top gear. The CTS Vsport is highly performance oriented and this twin-turbo V-6 model vehicle has got more than enough to excel the twin-turbo V-8 BMW 550i and or the Mercedes-Benz E550. The model features a turbo-charged 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine in the CTS, which offers 321 HP power and a solid 295 pound-feet torque. This is backed up properly for optimum performance with a six-speed automatic transmission as the smaller ATS model previously and here, it is an all-wheel Powertrain. On the road, all these come together to make a 0-60 mph possible in just 6 seconds and a quarter-mile drag in 14.5 seconds at an optimum of 93.5 mph.

If you want to stop it fully from 60 mph, the distance required is 115 feet. In braking performance, Cadillac is about one foot behind the heavier Mercedes, but it is also most surprising a quite considerable 9 feet behind the BMW. IT is the same case in terms of the skid pad, where the General models pull a high average as 0.85 as well as 0.88, where are the Cadillac scores a far better 0.68 g average.

All these with the advantage of horsepower as 321 vs the old 272, it could have been put it out far ahead of the four-cylinder, but the case if different. Being with a downer torque at about 275 pound-feet, this is what make the V-6 CTS to take 6.3 seconds in order to hit 60 mph speed and 14.7 seconds to complete quarter mile. Cadillac also claims that the turbo four sits with peak torque anywhere between 1700 rpm to 5500 rpm, but the V-6 may not hit its peak until it reaches 4800 rpm. In other tests, the V-6 car needed almost 111 feet to get stopped from the 60 mph speed.

However, consider the interior and exterior of this unique model, it can be classified as matchless. Offering the most comfortable driving features to the rider, Cadillac is also eye-catchy to the viewers. The controls and pads are so intelligently designed to offer the driver as well as the passengers the most wonderful sailing experience. The power-drive heated steering wheels as well as the sporty seating are fully featured to offer additional comfort.
