Sedan

Avg. Price: $49,968

Need a high-end commuter car, or a luxurious family automobile with an attitude? Check out the 2012 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan. A supercharged V8 engine and some capable moves on twisty back roads are combined with luxury and amenities to produce a value-laden Caddy that puts the excitement back into driving. Standard elegance for this top-shelf head-turner includes 13.6 cubic feet of trunk space, complemented by 19-inch alloy wheels, performance tires and heated power-adjustable mirrors on the outside. Look as well for leather upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and simulated carbon-fiber interior accents decorating the well-wrought cabin. The convenience of remote power door locks and power windows, furthermore, is bolstered by cruise control, telescoping tilt-wheel steering, rear parking sensors and rear parking sensors. Also check out the dual-zone climate control with Sun Sensor auto-adjust features, memory for driver's settings and Bluetooth-integrated OnStar Directions and Connections service, as well as a universal remote garage door opener and a standard hard-drive-based navigation system with voice directions. Entertainment is provided by a 300-watt surround-sound audio system with an MP3-capable single-CD player, 10 Bose premium speakers, satellite radio and a USB connection.

Options for this upscale 4-door Caddy include the Midnight Sapele Wood Trim Package, upgraded 19-inch wheels and 14-way adjustable Recaro heated and ventilated front sport seats. Additionally, the CTS-V Sedan is eligible to receive an available power-sliding panoramic sunroof.

Powering the 2012 CTS-V Sedan is a smile-inducing 6.2-liter supercharged V8 that matches up with the standard 6-speed manual transmission for 556 hp and 551 lb-ft of torque. A no-cost option is a 6-speed shiftable automatic transmission with steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters. In the case of the stick shift, look for an estimated 16 mpg city/19 highway, while the automatic offers 14/18. Alas, the supercharged V8 requires premium unleaded gas only. Finally, the automatic comes with a remote engine starter, as well as driver-selectable Sport and Touring modes that will customize throttle, transmission and suspension settings for optimal driving pleasure and excitement.

Standard safety features aboard the 2012 CTS-V Sedan include 4-wheel antilock brakes (ABS), traction and stability control, front and rear head airbags, front side-mounted airbags and front active headrests. Further safety equipment includes daytime running lights, front fog/driving lights, high-intensity-discharge (HID) headlights, OnStar Emergency Service, Airbag Deployment Notification and Stolen Vehicle Tracking, a post-collision safety system and a remote antitheft alarm.
