The fact that I can compare a Cadillac sedan with some of the best sport sedans in the world is a testament to how far the brand has come over the past decade. If you’re looking for a mid-size sport sedan, you owe it to yourself to drive the CTS before you make a decision.

I would have loved to drive this Cadillac over to my Dad’s house and take him for a drive. He would have loved the ride, especially the cornering. But somehow, I knew that he was already in the car with me, smiling at how much car technology had changed.

The CTS Coupe’s dynamics, handling and isolation are all very, very good. The level of luxury and the quality of build, fit and finish is very high, and the pure, edgy style of this car is breathtaking.

The outstanding thing about the Cadillac CTS Coupe is not where all the parts came from, but the styling. Yowzer! This is the most highly stylized muscle car in history. Its V6 did an admirable job of launching our sterling-silver Romulan battle pod through whatever space we aimed it.

In terms of pure looks, the CTS coupe should rocket to the head of the luxury pack. The stunning coupe finally gives the CTS the halo it needs to draw attention to what has long been a very worthwhile car and is now a very competitive lineup.

Ride, handling, acceleration and even interior aren’t the point of the Cadillac CTS Coupe. Style is, and in that regard Cadillac has grand-slammed it. All of the competing Germans and Japanese two-doors simply can’t hold a candle to the Coupe’s glorious lines.
