The 2016 Cadillac CTS seats five. The sedan comes standard with leatherette, eight-way power-adjustable front seats. Optional seating features include partial leather seats, full leather seats, heated rear seats, heated and cooled front seats, a heated steering wheel and Recaro 20-way power-adjustable front sport seats. The Cadillac CTS has pleasant-riding front seats, reviewers say, though some find that competitors’ base seats are nicer. Critics find the CTS’ back seats cramped. Reviewers praise the available Recaro sport seats for their exceptional long-ride comfort and support.

Interior Features

The 2016 Cadillac CTS comes with a rearview camera, Bluetooth, dual-zone automatic climate control, remote start, rear parking sensors, an 11-speaker Bose audio system, satellite radio, Cadillac’s CUE infotainment system with an 8-inch touch screen, hands-free text messaging and OnStar 4G LTE with a Wi-Fi hot spot (subscription required). Optional features include adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert with automatic braking, active lane keep assist, blind spot warning, rear cross traffic alert, parallel and perpendicular parking assist, a safety alert seat (which vibrates to warn the driver that the car is about to hit an obstacle), rain-sensing windshield wipers, a power sunroof, a 110-volt three-prong outlet, a power rear sunshade, rear-window sunshades, tri-zone automatic climate control, a 13-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system, navigation, a head-up display and a Surround Vision camera system, which provides a bird’s-eye view of the car.

For 2016, Cadillac updated the CUE infotainment system, and reviewers say it’s a slight improvement over the previous system. Still, some critics wish there were reductant physical buttons and knobs for adjusting audio and climate settings. A few auto writers also note that the touch-sensitive center console panels for audio and climate settings require a precise touch to work properly.
