My Dream Vehicle
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.
