I ran by Crest Cadillac in Plano this morning and picked up a 2011 Cadillac CTS Performance Coupe in Crystal Red Tintcoat for a test drive. I have been focused on the Sedan for my next Cadillac, but I am interested to test my thinking about how well a Coupe might fit instead.
Crest Auto Group is one of our ‘Friends of CaddyInfo’ Sponsors, and I appreciate their support for test drives.
This one is the CTS Coupe Performance Model, with the Performance Luxury and Navigation option (PCK). This configuration apparently gives you everything that the top of the line Premium Model would have except the Sunroof. Since due to the outline on the Coupe the sunroof is limited on this model anyway, this certainly seems an inviting option set.
The CTS Coupe is very artistic in its design language and consistency. Many touches from the recessed, handle-less doors to the sculpture-like pass-through exhaust are remarkable. Cadillac is using chrome cues for highlights, and a color like the Crystal Red Tintcoat contrasts nicely with these.
Could I trade off some rear head room for more art in my life and a better final drive ratio? Stay tuned.
