Staff Review Edmunds.com 7.8 out of 10 2013 Cadillac CTS Sedan

While the 2013 Cadillac CTS remains an enjoyable luxury sedan, and one of the best made in America, we think there are better choices this year. Unless you truly need that extra room, the 2013 Cadillac CTS proves that bigger isn’t always better.

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.

Our time in the revised CTS served as a reminder that General Motors can build a car that looks and drives as well as any European-designed sports sedan. It remains one of the best American cars on the market.
