Loading Comparison...


The 2019 Cadillac CTS bids farewell to GM’s lineup with its handsome shape and excellent handling intact. Little has changed for the 2019 model year except for a few new paint colors; a new CT5 sedan will replace the CTS for the 2020 model year.

Strong on performance, comparable to premium European sedans, the 2019 CTS comes in base, Luxury, Premium Luxury, or V-Sport trim. Cadillac also continues to offer the super-performance CTS-V offshoot, equipped with a rip-roaring 604-horsepower V-8 engine.

Powertrain choices are similar to those of Cadillac’s smaller ATS. In the base model, a 2.0-liter turbo-4 makes 268 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. A more popular choice, the 3.6-liter V-6 develops 335 hp and 285 lb-ft. Topping the powertrain trio, in the V-Sport edition, a potent twin-turbo V-6 generates 420 hp and 430 lb-ft.

An 8-speed automatic is standard. Rear-drive is standard, but 4-cylinder and non-turbo V-6 models can be equipped with all-wheel drive. Only rear-wheel drive is available for the V-Sport, which can hit 60 mph in a startling 4.6 seconds.

Most crash-test results inspire confidence. The NHTSA gives the 2019 CTS a clean sweep of five-star ratings: overall, frontal, side-impact, and rollover prevention.

The IIHS gave the CTS only a “Marginal” rating in the tough front small-overlap test, for the driver’s side. Headlights were judged “Poor,” but other tests earned “Good” scores.

Active-safety technology is somewhat restricted. Except for the base model, CTS sedans get blind-spot monitors, active lane control, and forward-collision warnings; automatic emergency braking is included at V-Sport level.


Prices do not include $995 destination charge.

Base CTS ($46,995 with rear-drive, $48,995 with all-wheel drive) holds a 4-cylinder turbo engine, with power front seats, synthetic leather seat trim, rear parking sensors, 11-speaker Bose audio, Bluetooth, and 17-inch wheels. The 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system operates with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Luxury ($52,695 with RWD, $54,695 with AWD) adds a power tilt/telescoping steering column, leather, heated and cooled front seats, 13-speaker Bose audio, navigation, and panoramic moonroof.

Premium Luxury ($60,195 with RWD, $62,195 with AWD) gets the 3.6-liter V-6, plus a surround-view camera system, automatic parking assist, color head-up display, tri-zone automatic climate control, magnetic ride control, and 18-inch wheels,

V-Sport ($61,695) has rear-wheel drive and a turbocharged version of the 3.6-liter V-6. Included are performance Brembo front brakes, a limited-slip differential, and Track mode.

V-Sport Premium Luxury ($71,795) adds 20-way seats and a performance-theme gauge cluster.

CTS-V ($86,995) contains a supercharged 640-horsepower, 6.2-liter V-8.


The 2019 CTS lets its edgy, assertive body shape transmit its performance intentions.

Since emerging in 2014, the current-generation CTS hasn’t changed much. Big vertical LED taillights sit above aggressive-looking dual exhaust outlets. Viewed from the rear, the CTS suggests memorable Cadillacs of the distant past.

Curves and angles come together to produce one handsomely proportioned sedan, ranking among the best-looking cars in its class.


Just as they do on the exterior, curves and angle mingle within the subdued cabin.

Even though it officially qualifies as a mid-size sedan, the CTS cabin is considerably snugger than typical competitors. A lone trim element stretches across the dashboard. Wood and leather blend with soft-touch plastic, creating an interior undeniably worthy of the Cadillac badge. Two-tone leather is available, to attract even greater interest.

Front occupants can anticipate gratifying comfort, held securely in position by amply-bolstered seats. Space is tighter in the back seat, thanks to the sleek, low roofline. Legroom is somewhat snug too. The trunk also is relatively small, at 13.7 cubic feet.

Two big screens may occupy much of the dashboard. An available 12.3-inch instrument cluster display, sharp and easy-reading, keeps the driver informed. The impressive 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen works with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

Driving Impressions

Most CTS buyers look past V-8 power, instead choosing the highly-regarded V-6. They’re not likely to be disappointed. With a V-6 underhood, the CTS reaches 60 mph in a brisk 6 seconds – or well below 5 seconds, if it’s a turbocharged V-Sport engine.

The 4-cylinder’s performance is decent, too, promising quiet cruising. Cadillac’s 8-speed automatic shifts cleanly, with reasonable swiftness.

Ride comfort is Cadillac-appropriate, but handling is where the CTS truly excels. Relatively light weight helps point this premium sedan toward the top of its class in deft handling – especially if it happens to be a V-Sport. Adaptive shock absorbers are well worth their additional cost.

In addition to Cadillac’s magnetic suspension, the V-Sport benefits from quicker steering, an electronic limited-slip differential, and bigger front brakes.

Superior build quality and ample sound deadening translates to quiet time on the road. Adding to the serenity, the Bose audio system features active noise cancellation.

Despite such fuel-saving features as active grille shutters and stop/start, gas mileage falls well short of such sedan as the Audi A6 or Volvo S90.

The 4-cylinder CTS sedan is EPA-rated at 22/30 mpg City/Highway, or 25 mpg Combined, dropping to 21/29/24 mpg with all-wheel drive. The V-6 model is EPA-rated at 19/29 mpg City/Highway, or 23 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive lowers that estimate to 18/26/21 mpg.

In the V-Sport, with twin-turbo V-6 power, the EPA rating drops to 16/24 mpg City/Highway, or 19 mpg Combined. Economy-minded buyers wouldn’t be happy with a CTS-V, EPA-rated at 14/21/16 mpg.


In its last model year, the Cadillac CTS demonstrates how satisfying a sport sedan can be. Abundant technology and plentiful standard equipment help set this sedan apart from its competitors.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
