With a brutal eight-cylinder and 649 hp waiting for the new Cadillac CTS-V, ready for the German market and its competitors there. Whether the bitter American is really on par with European high-performance sedans will be seen. We tested the strongest Cadillac in the company’s history for the heart and compressor. Driving report.

Exterior

Visually, our test candidate presents itself in brilliantly bright Chrystal White – a special coating, which has a pleasant mother of pearl note with the appropriate incidence of light.

When looking at the front of the Cadillac CTS-V, every viewer suddenly realizes that he does not just want to play. The beefy snout is dominated by a distinctive grille, which proudly carries the brand logo. If the 6,100 Euro expensive Carbon Black Edition package was ordered, so comes the same in black chrome.

The headlights pull far into the fenders, almost to the wheel arches. The voluminous hood has its own interpretation of the so-called power dome. This bulge is flanked by two distinctive kinks, three arrow-like hoods – also made of the expensive composite – imply an obvious vehemence to any layman. This is joined by a front splitter, which – who would have thought it – was also baked from carbon. Overall, the Cadillac CTS-V looks a bit crazy. Thank the inside projection lenses for the dipped beam.

By the way, if you open the vehicle in the dark, the Leaving Home function will be activated. So far so good. The special feature of the Cadillac is that the lenses are constantly moving. It seems as if the caddy is looking for his driver with the message: “Shall we play?”

This is of course purely subjective and actually complete nonsense. However, it fits perfectly with the character of the vehicle. But more on that later.

Let’s take a look at the rather compact but well-trained silhouette of the Ami. A little crouched, he lurks in the parking space, seems always ready for the decisive start. A striking kink in the sheet emphasizes this static dynamic. The rear doors end sharply, while the said edge pulls to the tail lights. The illuminated door handles meanwhile are an eye-catcher in the dark.

The rear of the car shows its brand affiliation in many ways. The typical, vertically arranged tail lights reveal connoisseurs immediately US-nationality. Thanks to the said carbon package, there is not a subtle, but very stylish rear spoiler, which creates a welcome contrast with the tail lights with its horizontal orientation. The four lushly dimensioned tailpipes are clad in a rear diffuser – also made of carbon fiber.

Interior

2017 Cadillac CTS Luxury AWD Sedan

The first entry into the Cadillac CTS-V proves to be an easy exercise. Limousine-typical high, the boarding of the Ami succeeds easily, while inside of Alcantara is received in harsh quantities. Performance full – that’s the title of this chapter. Let’s start with the pleasantly grippy steering wheel, which is thickly upholstered and, thanks to the Alcantara cover, is always well and safe in the hand, even with wet fingers – which are not uncommon.

The electric seats are equipped with a memory function. Convenience or not – lateral support is indispensable in a 650 hp car and this is also offered here. The upholstery is taut but pleasant and even long stretches are easy to complete in this sedan.

There is also a lot of carbon in the interior. Here, however, the material has been metered, framing only the control units and loosens the otherwise leather-clad interior with a sporty flair.

The space is generously dimensioned, on the front seats nobody should complain about too little head or leg room. In the second row, it is a bit closer due to the design, but also here, the Cadillac CTS-V is generous. If a guard gauge of 1.85 is not exceeded, the legroom is always secured. Meanwhile, the roof is still a long way away, even with taller passengers, there is nothing to complain about here. Well, the lateral support could be a little better. In fast driven curves, the upper handles were often used in our test.

The dark headliner in the CTS-V stirs up the slightly gloomy mood overall. A sunroof would be desirable here, but was not installed in our test car.

The wide center console seems to be tuned to the V in the name. Interpreted a bit freely, some editors have recognized these letters. The integrated touchscreen, like the buttons for the air-conditioning unit, gives haptic feedback in the form of a short vibration.

The classic round instruments are the Cadillac a special 12.3-inch display with V-specific representation. Added to this is the well-known from our Camaro Head-Up Display, which can be easily configured with three rocker switches to the left of the steering wheel.

Technology & Assistance

2017 Cadillac CTS Luxury AWD Sedan

As standard, the at least 98,500-euro Cadillac CTS-V rolls off with plenty of technical support.

Like the Blind Spot Warner, the head-up display is an old acquaintance from General Motors. Known from our endurance tester, the latter works very sensitively and has to fight mainly with false reports by rain and dirt, which turns out in practice, however, not really disturbing. Meanwhile, the head-up display projects the most important driving information directly into the windshield and can be operated blindly with three speed-dial buttons to the left of the steering wheel after a short familiarization.

Cadillac User Experience – CUE for short – is the operating system of the sports sedan and offers familiar technology from GM. This is meanwhile no longer stale, but had in our test car, among other things, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, SMS reading function and an inductive charging station for smartphones.

The voice control worked perfectly in our test. Although you can not dictate complete commands to the candy, we still do not criticize at this point, because even every navigation target was understood the first time and the route guidance was activated.

The Bose sound system in the Cadillac CTS-V is tuned – typical Bose – quite bass-heavy. Here you can improve on the equalizer a little, then the surround sound system with a fairly straightforward soundscape, which should ensure a relaxed listening pleasure even on long distances.

The assistance systems are also not exactly sown in the high-performance sedan. A very zealous blind spot assistant shows vehicles very much to the delight of sporty drivers early by means of orange LED in the outside mirror and starts flashing in case of non-compliance.

If a lane marking is exceeded when driving straight ahead, the lane departure warning system intervenes and gently steers against.

In addition, the Cadillac has a front collision warning. This proved to be very useful in practice, especially at high speeds is determined in fractions of a second, when a collision could threaten. The CTS-V then brakes independently.

In our Camaro badly missed, we would like to praise the traffic sign recognition in Caddy at this point. With a hit rate of over 90 percent in any weather, we consider this feature to be one of the most important in the vehicle. Speed limits are recognized here as well as overtaking bans.

All of this should not seem negatively connoted at all. The CTS-V exudes its charm bluntly and blatantly American. His pressurized eight-cylinder literally catapults all inmates towards the target – but only on request. If you take it easy, it’s just the sheer look that is intimidating to other road users and causes astonishment. In times of downsizing and trend-chasing, he positions himself and his owner so far off the mark that one would almost have to redefine the word “loner”.

Wonderfully defiant, the carbon-planked sedan makes its way – and takes a stand, which requires courage these days. But 650 hp and 855 Newton meters are enough for a correspondingly great self-confidence – no question.

Driving Behavior

2017 Cadillac CTS Luxury AWD Sedan

The V8 supercharger is beyond all performance doubt, he purrs and purrs and purrs. But if you kick it really powerful, the compressor whistles and it sounds rather high-speed than sonorous. The 8-speed automatic transmission turns on the gears rather imperceptibly, perfect, so it should be.

Only if you operate manually with the paddles, you can “hewn” the aisles. The rear-wheel drive always results in a sporty characteristic. In the driving modes, throttle response, gearshift and ESC are adjusted between tour, sport, track and snow. In the CTS-V you also have additional settings for the traction control available. Wet, Dry, Sport 1, Sport 2 or Race.

Here you can take back the traction control stronger. If it gets too precipitous, there is also an electronic limited slip differential. Already in sports mode, you can twist the tail around when playing with the gas. In this respect, you should leave it on public roads rather in tour mode or choose only in completely dry road sports. Incidentally, the adaptive chassis offers plenty of comfort, it does not change too much between the different modes, but is suitable for everyday use even in the basic position.

With the Launch Control you can make the most of the acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h, which requires a closed off terrain. Also interesting is the live rear view camera, which can be projected in the rearview mirror. However, this is set slightly low, and in the real rearview mirror you can see nothing in the lower range due to the design. Well, something in between would be pretty good. Overall, the CTS-V is one of the extreme representatives in this vehicle segment, but still quite suitable for everyday use.
