Used Car: 2011 Cadillac CTS-Sport-Wagon Review
The 2011 CTS Sports Wagon has sporty handling and a high reliability score that makes it a top choice. Plus, reviewers liked the passing power of the available 3.6-liter V6 engine.
The 2011 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon comes standard with a 3.0-liter V6 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available. Few reviewers tested the CTS Sport Wagon with the base engine, but most liked the more powerful 3.6-liter V6. The 2011 CTS Sport Wagon gets 18/27 mpg city/highway with the base engine, which is average for the class. The high-performance CTS-V Wagon comes with a supercharged V8 engine that produces 556 horsepower, which is more than double the base engine’s output. A few reviewers said that the CTS Sport Wagon’s base suspension is a bit stiff, but most liked its athletic handling and precise steering.
Some test drivers thought the CTS Sport Wagon’s front seats could be more comfortable, and they also said that the back seat could use more knee room. However, they appreciated the available wood accents and soft-touch materials used on the dash. Cargo space behind the second row is 25.4 cubic feet, which is average for the class, and with the back seat folded, maximum cargo capacity expands to 58 cubic feet. Standard features include a power liftgate, dual-zone automatic climate control and an eight-speaker stereo with satellite radio and an auxiliary input jack. Available features consist of leather seating, heated and ventilated front seats, a navigation system, a backup camera, Bluetooth, an upgraded stereo system and rear parking sensors.
