    Caddy’s CTS Vsport really cooks

    2014 Cadillac CTS Vsport review notes-cts_vsport-jpg

    ROAD TEST EDITOR JONATHAN WONG: The last Cadillac CTS Vsport we had in here wore an as-tested price of a whopping $72,140 and made editor Wes Raynal spit out his morning coffee when he first saw the price tag. That was a Premium model and was loaded to the gills with snazzy features like 20-way power adjustable front seats, a reconfigurable gauge cluster, your choice of either real carbon fiber or wood cabin accents, color configurable head-up display, aluminum pedals, adaptive cruise control, front and rear automatic braking with collision preparation, a giant sunroof, tri-zone climate controls, heated rear seats, fancier wheels and advanced security package. While all that stuff is cool to have, it’s not absolutely necessary. The real important stuff, however, is still here on this CTS Vsport which stickers for $12,145 less than our previous test car at $59,995.

    You still have the punchy twin-turbocharged V6 engine, eight-speed automatic transmission with a manual mode, 18-inch wheels wearing Pirelli P Zero tires, quicker steering ratio, Brembo front brakes with more aggressive pad material, improved cooling system, electronic limited-slip differential and a track mode with sharper steering and stiffer magnetic ride control suspension calibrations.

    And don’t be thinking the $60K Vsport is some stripped-down model lacking in features like some of the BMWs we’ve had come through the office in the past few months. There are still plenty of niceties in the cabin, like heated and cooled seats, navigation, Bose sound system, satellite radio, Bluetooth phone and audio, heated steering wheel, dual-zone climate controls and eight-way power front seats.

    On the street, the CTS Vsport is comfortable, quick and fun to hustle around. With 420 hp on tap, getting up to speed to blend in with expressway traffic is easy. With the adjustable settings for both the suspension and steering, it’s well-behaved around town with jolts from ruts smoothed out well, and steering wheel effort can be light but still responsive to inputs for when you just want to cruise.
