2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon
In late summer Cadillac, a far healthier GM brand, added a Sport Wagon as the second member of its widely-acclaimed mid-size CTS lineup. Like the sedan, all-wheel-drive is optional, but handsome shooting-brake looks come standard.
The CTS’ now-familiar “Art and Science” angular design jets rearward into an extended but low-slung greenhouse, and ends with Cadillac-signature vertical light stacks set into beefy D-pillars.
Open the extra architecture with the standard power liftgate to find 25 cubic feet of luggage capacity, almost double the space in the CTS sedan’s trunk.
Folding the 60/40 rear seats more than doubles it to 54 cubes of wide, long stow-and-go, with adjustable tie-downs blended into the floor, which itself hides a shallow but wide cargo bay. Along with a nearly-concealed roof rail system, there’s little this wagon can’t carry swiftly.
The heavier Sport Wagon shares the same powertrains as the sedan. Standard is a new 3.0-liter V6 with 270 horsepower and highway fuel economy of 28 mpg.
With our car’s optional 304-horsepower 3.6-liter V6, the Sport Wagon felt athletic and composed when we put it through its paces in the summery shade of New York’s lower Hudson River Valley.
Rear-wheel-drive Sport Wagons can be had with GM’s optional high-performance FE3 suspension, which includes a limited-slip differential. Nineteen-inch alloy wheels shroud larger brake rotors.
The 5-passenger space of the CTS Sport Wagon is carried over intact from the sedan. Good thing, since it is among the most handsome and stylish in the industry. A retracting navigation screen is optional.
Available now, the CTS Sport Wagon’s sticker starts in the high thirties.
