There are only a handful of Cadillac dealers in the UK, so you may have to travel to find one, and this also makes servicing tricky. The CTS undercuts German rivals on price, but resale values are awful. The thirsty engines and high carbon dioxide emissions mean hefty running costs whether it's a private buy or company car. A diesel engine would be a welcome addition.
Cadillac CTS Saloon quality & reliability
The upper dash is trimmed in leather and most of the cabin materials look smart, although the hard silver plastic that decorates the centre console lets the side down a little. Cadillac is still something of an unknown quantity here, so reliability is hard to assess.
Cadillac CTS Saloon safety & security
Safety equipment is competitive, with all models getting twin front, side and curtain airbags, electronic brakeforce distribution and stability control. On the security front, the doors automatically lock once you're inside and an alarm and immobiliser are standard.
