Now we’ve recently learned that the model will come in two body styles, and the version previewed by the concept car (pictured above) will not be the first one to arrive.

Test Drive: 2018 Cadillac CTS Premium Luxury .
It’s the little details, sometimes. In many areas where it counts, the 2018 Cadillac CTS feels cautiously calibrated to create a satisfying luxury performance drive – and one that demonstrates plenty of attention to how things feel and respond at the tips of the driver’s fingers and toes. The engine is loud when pushed, but sounds glorious, athletic, heavily mechanical, and increasingly angry the faster you get it spinning. It’s small stuff that many an owner may not even notice. But luxury fans love little details and the CTS is full of them, right down to the signature tactile sensation dialled into much of the cabin and drive. This starts inside, where almost everything is heavy. The subtly solid and muted jiggle through the cabin when the engine turns on and off. The doors, and their handles. The signal stalk. The power windows, which seal with a discreet thrrrph when closed. The motorized sliding centre console cover. The shift lever. Virtually everything you can manipulate on board the CTS operates with a consistent sensation that’s heavy and velvety and substantial. Many of these controls and provisions require just a touch more effort and force from your fingertips to manipulate than expected – as if designers were keen on ensuring drivers feel a density when they interface with the car. Or, the steering. On the highway, there’s a very slight numbness on centre, to keep the CTS from feeling twitchy or nervous.
