I drove a 2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon from Crest Cadillac in Plano for a weekend test drive review last weekend. This is a collection of final thoughts, notes, and comments that were not included in my other review posts.
- The Sport Wagon is the same size as the Sedan. I know this empirically, and it drives as the same size, but I think of a Wagon as being longer than the Sedan. I suppose I am thinking of old, traditional station wagons and not this modern efficient equivalent.
- The test vehicle had a 20″ Vogue wheel & tire package, and still had a smooth ride, not stiff or harsh. I like the stainless steel mesh grill from the 1st Generation V-Series as used on the Vogue grill on the test Sport Wagon.
- The Sport Wagon has all the appointments of the CTS Sedan, including iPod interface in the center console.
- There is an available backup camera option, although the test vehicle did not have this feature. I had no problem seeing out of the back of the vehicle when backing, but I like backup cameras as gadgets.
- The wood trim in the current CTS family on the steering wheel, shift, and along the doors is almost perfect. My Wife suggested another panel along the glove box would add some additional styling there.
- My opinion of the 3L+6speed auto power train combo continues to improve, although I would look for the 3.6L V6 or the V-Series variant of the Sport Wagon if price is not the driving factor.
