2010 Cadillac CTS: The Bold Lure of Luxury

by Martha Hindes
2010_Cadillac_CTS Lithe, lean and athletic, we adored the 2010 Cadillac CTS sedan delivered to our door for an all-too-brief late spring test drive. This handsome heart stopper is smooth and teasing with the "A List" sophistication of a slightly wicked Ashton Kutcher in prime time. We knew just looking that it would caress corners and tame straightaways with naughty abandon. It did.

For those who felt American DNA was an intender pretender, we beg to differ. There are solid performance credentials under this smart, rakish hood as its 304-Horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 (or base 3.0-liter six) chase down Euro yearning yuppies for a refined smack down, with six-speed equilibrium. Here's a perfect case for smoking the road on hunky tires while basking in a classy chassis designed for barely controlled excitement. Of course that's punched up when AWD replaces standard rear drive.

Inside, a supple, purposeful dash balancing tactile technology with smart styling anchors its affluent look. High safety ratings and fuel economy averages in the low 20's (on regular), anchor the practical side. With prices starting in the breathe-easy, mid-$30K range we're convinced: Attaining tantalizing luxury status never felt so satisfying.
