The Cadillac CTS (or Catera Touring Sedan) is a mid-size luxury sports car designed, engineered, manufactured and marketed by General Motors. General Motors introduced the CTS in 2002 as a 4-door sports sedan, succeeding the Cadillac Catera. The CTS is currently available in three body styles: 4-door sedan, 2-door coupe, and 5-door sport wagon.
The first- and second-generation CTS are based on the GM Sigma platform; the third-generation CTS is based upon a stretched version of the GM Alpha platform.
Wayne Cherry and Kip Wasenko designed the exterior of the first generation CTS and this vehicle marked the production debut of the “Art and Science” design language first seen on the Evoq concept car. Bob Boniface and Robin Krieg designed the exterior of the third generation CTS.
Variants of the CTS have been named to the Car and Driver 10Best list six times and have won the Motor Trend Car of the Year award twice. As of February 2014, the 2014 model ranked number one among Upscale Midsize Cars according to U.S. News and World Report.
