    2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport Long-Term Update 1-2014-cadillac-cts-vsport-front-quarter-jpg

    The miles are flying by in the Cadillac CTS Vsport, and it's not that much of a surprise given how quickly the twin-turbo powered Motor Trend Car of the Year moves out when the going gets fast. At a shade under 4000 pounds (3938, to be exact), the Vsport isn't exactly a lightweight, but its 420 horses have proven to be more than enough to get the Caddy rolling fast and furiously when the highway on-ramp light drops to green and I drop the hammer.

    But as anyone who's driven in L.A.'s insane traffic knows, going fast is a relative term and you often spend an inordinate amount of time slowly rolling along or suddenly braking and swerving to avoid an accident. The Vsport excels in these areas. In low-speed stop-and-go the CTS is quiet in the cabin, and in Touring mode it soaks up road imperfections like Bounty soaks up spills. The four-piston Brembo calipers bite down hard on 13.6-inch vented discs up front. Along with a 12.4-inch disc, single piston setup out back and Pirelli P Zeros all around, the Vsport's roll can be slowed quickly. Its responsive helm also allows for quick and dirty maneuvers to help avoid a three-car pileup.

    Guest driver and MT archivist Thomas Voehringer got a chance to air the Vsport out for a couple of weeks. He took a jab or two, but had a lot of interesting things to say in an entertaining way, many of which I agree with wholeheartedly. I'll let him take it from here:

    When I test drove a Vsport a while back, Aunt Agnus surprised me also. He's right, Aunt Agnus' actions do seem a bit arbitrary and annoying. The sales rep told me I could turn off Aunt Agnus but it was a short drive, so I left it on.

    I did not get introduced to Weird Uncle Jake or the kids. If Uncle Jake was working, I didn't notice - daylight drive anyway - and I didn't bother with CUE much. If I bought a Vsport, I'm sure I'd have plenty of time to get get used to CUE.

    Mom worked as advertised. The mom in my Volt is similar and I'm used to it. My V Wagon has a mini-mom as it does not provide steering information.

    I probably need another test drive.

    I wonder if the programming in the CTS Vs is that different from the XTS.

    I found the XTS Vsport to be quite accommodating as far as the aunts and uncles. The lane departure buzzes my butt just as the tires start hitting the lane reflectors. When the right side fog line is weak or obscured she does have a problem seeing it - but thats a road issue I believe - not an issue to take up with Agnes!

    The high beams work wonderfully on our local road - back country highways. When in a construction zone late at night though I find them dimming because of the reflectors in the traffic cones. Not bad - with all the reflective light - I probably didn't need high beams anyway.
