The official example of the updated Cadillac CTS was held in 2013 at the New York Auto Show. For 11 years, the sale of the CTS modification has steadily increased its pace. Most of the sales were in the domestic market, in a smaller number you can see them on the roads of European countries. There are connoisseurs in Russia! In April 2014, the company delivered an updated model to the Russian market. The model is based on a new platform, a new 2-liter engine with a capacity of 276 horse power and a six-speed automatic transmission are placed under the hood. Significant changes also affected the interior and electronic equipment. The basic version has risen in price by only 100 thousand rubles. It is at this price that the company plans to increase sales, among other brands, in its class, also to raise the bar for popularity.
The modern body shape gives the car an elegant look that is observed in every part of it: a volumetric radiator grille, a sports bumper with air intakes, vertically arranged running lights, and updated wheels make the car more elegant. The length became 10 centimeters longer than the predecessor, and the weight decreased by 110 kilograms, which makes it a leader in its class. High aerodynamic performance achieved by tilting the windshield. And the integrated rear spoiler causes additional downforce on the drive axle. Driving is considered almost perfect.
