Sentiment Score 80%
Reviewers from cnet have found the following***:
The CT5's twin-turbo V6 might not make as much power as the CT5-V's engine, but it's still tons of fun. Cadillac's infotainment system shows the automaker at the top of its game. The interior is fine -- above fine when compared with Cadillacs of yore -- but it still lags behind its German competition.

  • Gorgeous V6
