Usability Review - 2017 Cadillac CTS V-Series

Usability Reviews are only available to UI/UX Service subscribers

The CTS-V brings much of the luxury technology feature set from the existing Cadillac lineup to its interior, starting with the display systems. The 8-inch center stack display includes the revamped Cadillac CUE infotainment platform with navigation, along with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities. Also included as standard are the 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster display and a windscreen head-up display. Bose surround sound, automatic parking assist, wireless charging, and the driver awareness package round out the noteworthy standard tech features. The model tested also included optional performance data recorder and rearview camera display mirror, which comes with the Luxury Package.

While the new CUE infotainment update was certainly the highlight for the purposes of this HMI-centric review, the CTS-V sounds and drives just as mean as it looks. The 6.2L, V8, super charged transmission offered even comes with a multi-day performance training course that a buyer can take advantage of within a year of them driving it off the dealer lot. Pair that performance with the Carbon Black and Luxury Packages and you’re left with a total vehicle price of $103,260, and likely some jealous neighbors.
