The exterior of the Cadillac CTS-V Wagon is not flashy or overly stylish. In fact it is designed to exude the class that is known by the brand while still showcasing the practical use of a station wagon. When one buys this model they can expect to turn heads for more than one reason. The luxury that is afforded in this wagon is second to none and the concept of such power in a station wagon is foreign to many people.
The interior of the Cadillac CTS-V Wagon is where it truly shines. Made much line the interior of the standard wagon, the CTS-V boasts the top notch materials and design that one would expect from Cadillac. The control panel inside the cabin is laid out in a way that makes it easy to use and attractive at the same time. There is plenty of room for the passengers in this wagon making it an excellent choice for a family hauler. However, the cargo space is what makes or breaks a wagon and this one has exactly what is needed. There are competitors that offer a bit more cargo room, but they come at a much larger price tag.
Driving the Cadillac CTS-V Wagon is a unique experience in itself. Most expect a wagon, especially a luxury wagon, to be slow on the roads. This vehicle blows that theory to bits. In fact, the CTS-V will surprise even the most avid road enthusiast. It has a quick speed from acceleration on and amazingly great handling when on typical roads. Drivers might find it a bit more difficult to maneuver during twists and turns, but that won't hurt the overall performance of the vehicle.
It is what is under the hood of the Cadillac CTS-V Wagon that places it in a higher class of vehicle. The engine on this car is a 6.2 liter 556 horsepower supercharged V8 that can offer more power than many of the current sports sedans on the market. It comes with a six speed manual transmission as standard, but one can change to a six speed automatic with no fee. Most will find the automatic fares better during driving than the manual if power and speed are the most important. Because of the combination of engine and transmission, the CTS-V can make it to sixty miles per hour in less than five seconds. That is incredibly fast for a wagon, but it hurts the fuel mileage that one might expect from a car. It never gets higher than 14 mpg in the city and 19mpg on the highway.
