2012 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan Miami
For 2012 the Cadillac CTS-V sedan gains standard automatic wipers. A new CTS Touring Package is available with 18 inch all season tires. The CTS-V features sophisticated suspension systems developed, among other places, at the famous Nurburgring race track in Germany. Even the standard suspension delivers a good balance of handling response and ride comfort. The ride is always comfortable, but always welldamped and never mushy. Steering is as fluid, as accurate and as nicely weighted as that in any sedan in the world. The CTS feels solidly put together, and it's quiet underway. The cabin is attractive, comfortable and space efficient, and everything is easy to operate. The Bose 5.1 Cabin Surround audio upgrade sounds fantabulous. This car produces 556 horsepower and 551 lb. ft. or torque using a 6.2 liter V-8 eninge.
Handling of the '12 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan
The CTS-V models deliver a remarkable combination of sporting entertainment and coddling everyday transport. The steering feels more natural and satisfying than what's found in a lot of sports cars. Clutch and brake action are better than any Cadillac ever, and better than the super-tuned luxury hotrods from some European manufacturers. Despite a substantial increase in pavement grip, thanks largely to its extra wide, sticky performance tires, the CTS-V's standard MR variable suspension never feels too harsh. At two thirds of its published top speed, the CTS-V sedan is as stable as granite. Its supercharger is very quiet in operation, and it keeps pumping acceleration-building torque at high revs. There's so much torque that gear selection, road or engine speed almost don't matter. Step on it anywhere, at any speed, and the CTS-V flat flies.
2012 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan Cabin
The 2012 Cadillac CTS-V comes with all the interior features that the Cadillac CTS comes with plus a few extra. It starts with a thick-rimmed steering wheel that can be covered with synthetic suede. The dead pedal, which allows the driver to brace the left leg, is great for enthusiastic driving. Subtle V badging inside reminds passengers that the owner has anted up for the super-performance package. The rear seat offers enough room for two adults approaching six feet in height. The rear outboard seats are carved out like buckets, and quite comfortable. A switch on the back of the center console controls airflow for rear passengers, between vents on the console itself or registers under the front seats.
Exterior Design of the '12 Cadillac CTS-V Sedan
The high-performance CTS-V models get unique, functional styling features, starting with larger wire-mesh grille work above and below the front bumper. This doubles the amount of air flowing into the engine bay, increasing cooling capacity for the engine, transmission and front brakes. An aluminum power-dome hood provides a slight bulge to accommodate the supercharged V8 underneath. Huge Brembo brakes, wedged into thin-spoke, 19-inch forged wheels and extra-wide tires, comprise one of the most engaging visual elements on the car.
