My 2005 Cadillac CTS-V is very powerful and has incredible handling! It gets over 26 mpg on the highway at 65 mph on cruise control. At the same time this is a family car. It seats five, and has lots of leg room in back seat. The back seat also goes down so that I can fit skis, snow boards, and hockey sticks. I have three big boys and definitely need this extra space. I looked at BMW, Audi, Mercedes-Benz E55, Mazda, Volvo and read all car magazines. The CTS-V is the one with a soul.
The power, speed, handling, technolgy, and practicality all provide a great value. As a bonus this car is made in America.
Add a hand brake on this car please! It needs a light in the glove box. The dashboard looks like a wet suit, leather would be fine. The footbrake release is to close to hood release. I know the exterior design makes a statement, but it was a little hard to get used to. It looks like Darth Vader's car, perhaps make it a little less angular.
