PERFORMANCE

EXPECT AN
INSTANT RESPONSE

Proving less is more exhilarating, the all-new CTS Sedan is the lightest Rear-Wheel Drive car in its class — and over 90 kg lighter than the previous generation CTS. To validate its credentials, we tested the CTS on Germany’s Nürburgring and brought it back home to fine-tune its dynamic yet sophisticated ride.
