Comfort that performs. With standard 20-way heated and ventilated performance-oriented seats, trimmed in semi-aniline leather and V-signature sueded microfiber inserts.

With its athletic stance, wide body and low height, the 2016 CTS-V’s shape is both aggressive and intelligent.


Light, but striking. A lightweight carbon fiber hood provides the CTS-V high performance sedan with optimal weight distribution and positively sleek looks.

Always use safety belts and the correct child restraints for your child's age and size. Even in vehicles equipped with airbags and the Passenger Sensing System, children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate infant, child or booster seat. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the front seat of any vehicle equipped with an active frontal airbag. Airbag inflation can cause severe injury or death to anyone too close to the bag when it deploys. Be sure every occupant is properly restrained. See the Owner's Manual and child safety seat instructions for more safety information.
