In a luxury sport sedan market that's traditionally dominated by German carmakers, the Cadillac STS-V makes a tremendous impression. A model from Cadillac's V-Series line of ultra-performance vehicles, the STS-V is based on the STS large sedan. With its supercharged V8 producing 469 horsepower, it had been the most powerful car Cadillac ever produced until being thoroughly passed by its little brother, the CTS-V. The car also comes with upgraded hardware for improved handling and braking and minor styling changes to differentiate it from regular STS models.
The focus on performance doesn't come at the expense of luxury. Just like the standard version, the V-Series sedan is comfy, plush and loaded with a generous amount of premium features. Overall, we're quite impressed. Though the Cadillac STS-V could be a very viable choice for a big-bore luxury sport sedan, the new CTS-V blows it out of the water in just about every area short of interior space. We suggest saving 20 grand and opting for the smaller, better Cadillac CTS-V.
