CTS is a very solid and potent driver. The handling is firm and responsive. The 3.6 L v6 is snappy and gives confidence. Overall it is a pleasure to drive and has a very sporty feel, yet still provides comfort for long hauls.
Instrumentation is simple yet effective. Seating is comfortable and stylish. Exterior is stylish and nicely finished. Good paint helps.
Perhaps a more giving tire would help smooth out the ride. It is firm. Interior could use a little more eye catching trim. Perhaps a little more wood.
