No detail overlooked. From its signature LED lighting to its ingenious, lightweight aluminum doors to its remarkably powerful engines, every gram of material in the CTS had to justify its existence.
Created in turn is a beautifully crafted vehicle that stands out among the world’s nest on the road.
Less is more powerful. As the lightest Rear-Wheel-Drive car in its class, CTS is 240 pounds lighter than the previous-generation CTS.
To validate its credentials, we pushed CTS to its limit on Germany’s famed Nürburgring track.
Then we brought it back home to ne-tune its dynamic ride. The outcome of such a tough regimen? Impressive acceleration, precise handling and brake feel worthy of a title.
Turbo on demand. At the heart of the CTS Vsport is a direct-injection Twin Turbo V6 that puts out a staggering 420 hp and 430 lb.–ft. of torque.
Powerful Brembo® front brakes include massive 13.6″ front rotors and available high-performance brake linings, while the electronic Limited-Slip Differential (eLSD) provides enhanced stability and maximum traction through corners.
And with the precision of ZF premium steering, Magnetic Ride Control with exclusive Track mode and Pirelli summer-only run-flat tires, you’ve got performance that never quits.
