cadillac 2021 2021 CT5 is Cadillac’s sports sedan, and it plays an important role in any luxury car company’s portfolio . When compared to its competitors – the BMW 3-Series, Mercedes-Benz C-class, and Genesis G70 – the CT5 doesn’t have the sharpest feedback or the sleekest cabin, but its beautiful design helps it stand out from the crowd. The turbocharged four-cylinder engine comes standard,

But buyers can upgrade to a twin-turbo V6 with up to 360 horsepower. The Caddy’s cabin is more spacious than many of its competitors, making it easier to use as a family car. All models come with a touchscreen infotainment screen, basic driver assistance technologies and plenty of convenience features.

Like the smaller CT4, the CT5 receives the new 2021 Diamond Sky Metallic Edition package, which offers unique exterior and interior design elements including distinctive wheels. A new 12.0-inch digital display is available, and Cadillac will offer a Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving mode as an option on its 2021 CT5s.

The Premium Luxury model deserves an extra scratch. It adds features like interior ambient lighting, a wireless smartphone charging pad, illuminated exterior door handles, blind spot monitoring, driver seat memory settings, rear parking sensors, and electric lumbar support for the driver and front passenger. It also unlocks several options, such as the Driver Awareness Plus package. This brings automatic high beams, lane-keeping assist, a head-up display, and more. We recommend this, but it should be noted that it also requires the selection of the lighting package, which consists of the front cornering lights and illuminated door sills.

Engine, Transmission, and Performance Cadillac 2021

The standard engine on the CT5 is a 237-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder , but you can upgrade to a 3-liter V-6 with 335 horsepower. The performance-oriented CT5-V features a 360-horsepower version of the twin-turbo V6 engine plus adaptive dampers and an electronically controlled limited-slip differential. Work is also underway on a more track-ready model, with a prototype already being tested. Both engines are mated to a 10-speed automatic. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is optional. In our tests,

The CT5’s rear-engined turbocharged four-cylinder sprinted to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds. The BMW 330i and Alfa Romeo Giulia T, two of the CT5’s main competitors, completed the same test in 5.1 and 4.6 seconds, respectively. When it comes to driving and handling, the CT5 is smoother and less sporty than the CTS it replaces. Body control is much more neglected, and the improvements to the car’s handling aren’t enough to justify what seems like a step backwards in driving dynamics.

2021 cadillac fuel economy

Fuel economy estimates have not been released for the V-6, but the fourth turbo is rated at up to 32 mpg highway, 23 mpg city, and 26 mpg combined. Four-wheel drive models operate 31 highways, 21 cities, and 25 combined. On the fuel economy test route on the 200-mile highway, the rear-wheel drive Sport model managed 31 mpg.

Interior, comfort and cargo 

Cadillac corrected some of the CTS’s interior flaws with this new sports sedan; Namely, CT5 offers a more user-friendly interface and straightforward design. Unfortunately, the quality of the cabin materials seems unworthy of the CT5’s status as a luxury car. Premium Luxury models are available with nice open-pore wood trim that elevates the interior, but it mixes alongside cheap black plastic that would otherwise have been lifted from the Chevrolet Malibu family sedan. The rear seat is more spacious than the CTS, but competitors like the Acura TLX and Volvo S60 feel spacious. All three vehicles have similarly sized bins, and each fits five of our hand luggage behind the back seats.

The CT5 features the latest version of the CUE infotainment system, displayed on a 10.0-inch touch screen in the center of the dashboard. It’s more logically structured than the old system and replaces some touch-sensitive controls with physical ones. You can control the system via a rotating wheel located behind the transmission or by interacting with the touch screen itself. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration come standard. Desirable available features include a head-up display, wireless device charging, and an eight-speaker Bose audio system.

Safety and driver assistance features

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has released crash test results for the CT5. A range of driver assistance technologies are available, including adaptive cruise control and lane keep assist. GM’s self-driving Super Cruise Level 2 feature — which can manage vehicle steering, acceleration, and braking without the driver having to keep their hands on the wheel — will be available sometime after launch. Key safety features include:

 Standard Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection

 Lane departure warning with lane-keep assist

 Available adaptive cruise control

Warranty and maintenance coverage

The CT5’s warranty coverage is more generous than that of German sports sedans, particularly in the powertrain warranty, beating the 3 Series and Mercedes-Benz C-Class by two years or 20,000 miles. Better warranties are available in the luxury car entry market with the Genesis G70 and Kia Stinger,

Both offer longer limited warranties and powertrain. The Genesis comes with three full years of free scheduled maintenance, while the Cadillac includes only the first visit for free.

 The limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles

 The powertrain warranty covers six years or 70,000 miles

 Free maintenance is covered for the first visit
