Driving Seat: The Caddys are coming.
The Cadillac CTS is designed to pull the European business user/choosers and has some impressive film footage to its credit, being the wheeled lead in the cult movie Matrix Reloaded.
Unlike the somewhat retro and thirsty V8 STS that made a bid for stardom in the UK some years ago, the CTS has much more going for it when it comes to appealing to the demanding market that swears by the likes of Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Jaguar.
Powered by a new breed of six cylinder engines - either in 2.8 or 3.6 V6 form - the CTS is one of the most strikingly styled cars available in any market sector today.
It has a hunky, slab-sided, stance with a vertical headlamp array and looks like nothing else on the road.
Visually it is a professional upstager, but looks are no good without the car delivering a driving experience that is nothing short of exceptional - and this is what the Cadillac say the CTS delivers It was fine-tuned at Germany's famed Nurburgring circuit and features a stability control system adapted from that used by its General Motors high performance cousin, the iconic Chevrolet Corvette. Prices are highly competitive which will help Cadillac 'poach' sales from rival marques. The 2.8 costs pounds 24,850 and the 3.6 Sports Luxury at pounds 29,850
