This third generation CTS is filled with Cadillac’s latest technology and this V Sport model extends the sedan’s performance into the legitimate, European-fighting stratosphere.

Introduced for the 2014 model year, the Cadillac CTS is all new, a more modern interpretation of Cadillac’s mid-sized sedan that’s meant to take on the best from Europe. This third generation CTS is filled with Cadillac’s latest technology and this V Sport model extends the sedan’s performance into the legitimate, European-fighting stratosphere. When I first laid eyes upon the CTS V Sport, I noticed the 275-section width Pirelli rear tires and I knew this was going to be an interesting car.

Among its competitors, there are endless sport-oriented models, and those in name only. There is the F Sport at Lexus, the M Sport at BMW, AMG Sport trim packages at Mercedes-Benz and Audis gilded with S-Line kits. These so-called sport models are more often than not appearance packages with little performance bits under the skin. Cadillac, on the other hand, offers up the V Sport with authentic performance technology.

The CTS starts at a tick over $52,000, but that’s for the base 2-litre turbo model. With 272 horsepower, it’s no shrinking violet, but drivers like us, well, we like as much horsepower as we can get. There is the venerable 3.6-litre V6 model with 321 horsepower, but this V Sport, however, adds a pair of turbochargers to the V6 to produce a respectable 420 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. Thankfully, the V Sport engine is tuned so that any turbo lag is barely discernible. Well done, Cadillac.

This model does come at a pretty penny, $74,495 to be exact, but rest assured, this V Sport is a very competitive and compelling sedan. Fittingly, it’s at the top of the CTS range in terms of price as well as equipment. The only real option is a more aggressive set of brake pads for a bargain price of $110. For driving enthusiasts, you’ll definitely want to tick that option box.
