Cadillac CTS Motor Trend Car of the Year
While many vehicles are defined by their appearance, performance, or interior amenities, Cadillac has achieved the ideal blend of those attributes in the 2014 Cadillac CTS, which recently was named the 2014 Motor Trend Car of the Year. With a redesign for the 2014 model year, the Cadillac CTS showcases more pronounced luxury styling and a longer, wider base that allows it to directly compete in the mid-size luxury segment.
The 2014 Cadillac CTS is doing more than competing, however, as the redesigned sedan has established itself as the class of the auto industry for the 2014 model year. With the Motor Trend Car of the Year award and a long list of other achievements earned since its original launch in 2003, the Cadillac CTS once again has captured the spirit of luxury and the heart of performance for 2014.
Cadillac CTS Stays a Step Ahead
Perhaps the most rewarding aspect of the Motor Trend Car of the Year designation is the evaluation process, which includes rigorous comparisons from automotive experts. To begin, Motor Trend judges narrow the list from 22 entries to eight before taking those finalists for a real-world road loop that contains various surfaces, traffic conditions, and other variables. Each vehicle is judged on six criteria —design advancement, engineering excellence, efficiency, safety, value, and performance of intended function. Clearly, the Cadillac CTS came out swimmingly as it was named Motor Trend Car of the Year for the second time in six years.
Available in six trim levels and with four-cylinder and V-6 engine options, the 2014 Cadillac CTS gives drivers a full slate of options to meet the versatile demands of drivers. Inside, the 2014 Cadillac CTS is highlighted the Cadillac User Experience (CUE) infotainment interface, which is standard in all trims. Other standard amenities like an 11-speaker Bose audio system, premium vinyl upholstery, and satellite and HD radio make the interior of the Cadillac CTS as impressive as the performance.
