The redesigned 2008 Cadillac CTS is an impressive addition to the entry-level luxury market. Craftsmanship and class are the key elements in the ’08 CTS. The interior (the instrument panel, center console, and door trim), is wrapped in hand-cut and hand-sewn materials. On the exterior, the belt-line is polished stainless trim, unlike many competitors’ chrome styling and the addition of the double-sized sunroof makes the roof 70% glass. The attention to detail rounds out the CTS, including the Cadillac V accents throughout the vehicle.
Our tester came with the 3.6L V6 (304 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 273 lb-ft of torque at 5,200 rpm), which started at $34,345 but with the $2,000 AWD option and $8,000 luxury option, topped out at $46,000 (still a decent price for a luxury sedan with leather interior, a sunroof, a BOSE sound system, a 6-speed automatic tranny, and OnStar). Overall, the Cadillac CTS is a great balance between ride, handling and style.
