It’s indeed a pity that as more SUVs and crossovers hit the roads, sports sedans like the 2019 Cadillac CTS are far and few between, with not many being launched. And the fact that Cadillac is planning to do away with the CTS lineup is not that good either, but for the moment we’ll hold of our judgement until we see what Cadillac comes up with, to replace the lot. But as far as the new model is concerned, it is official and soon to be launched and naturally, with details and specs being sparse we had to go on the hunt and finally managed to collate enough info for our review. So let’s get to it, shall we?
2019 Cadillac CTS Overview
The 2019 Cadillac CTS is a through and through sports sedan and there’s no denying the fact. From the leaked images, this would be obvious to anyone. It comes with edgy styling and is rumoured to pack a mean engine that is slated to make it rev up to 60 in fewer than six seconds flat. It comes with the same trims as before and is expected to feature only a few changes since a new model is going to be launched early next year with a complete makeover.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Cadillac CTS comes with a tweaked design that makes it more aerodynamic than the current outgoing model. While we did not expect any major changes, we were pleasantly surprised upon seeing the new model features a black chrome grille with dark rillettes which provides it with a better look. Furthermore, you can also expect the new model to feature restyled LED headlights along with sharper corners, flowing lines, and aggressive exhaust ports.
The rest of the design seems to be more or less the same with the same platform, wheelbase along with 18 to 19 inch Pirelli tires. The CTS was designed as a sports sedan and certainly looks every bit of the part. It should also be pointed out that the new model is much lighter than the outgoing model as it incorporates a lot of lightweight elements. With this new model, you should be able to get more out of the car than you would otherwise as it is aerodynamically designed and weighs a lot less than the previous variants which are a plus.
The 2019 Cadillac CTS comes with a redesigned interior; the new model comes with an 11 speaker system along with three USB ports. The new model comes with leather upholstery, heated seats, power steering, power windows, and rear cameras for the blind spots along with rear parking sensors.
The advanced trims come with advanced safety features as well as an 8inch touchscreen infotainment system that will allow you to stream music and other media from Android auto and Apple car play. With the new model, it should become apparent that this car manages to include the very best in comfort and luxury, which is why it stands out for all the right reasons.
Engine, Release Date, and Price
The 2019 Cadillac CTS comes with 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 268 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque for the base engine.

And as far as the pricing is concerned,
