In August 2001, in one of prestige American golf clubs the first show of new luxurious sedan of Cadillac CTS, which came on changing of out-of-date model of Cadillac Catera, took place in Pebbl Beach. A premiere in Pebbl Beach was considered «unofficial»: began the large world tour of Cadillac CTS at the beginning of September on a motor show in Frankfurt. In a sale a car acted at the end of 2002.
CTS are the prime example of the economic order of produced auto in the period of total globalization and new. It affected on his technical «filling», but not at all on his appearance - little Cadillac was and remains the same «Сaddy» to that Americans got used.
The basket of CTS is extraordinarily «multilateral» deliberately the chopped forms look a bit brutal the corps of outward mirrors is awkward even. The forehand of car is decorated large, under hung grate of radiator with the \"familial\" coat of arms, located on the butt ends of wings vertical headlights and almost continuous bumper.
CTS living and sharp in a management and herein he is helped by the new 3,2-with a capacity of one the liter engine of V6, that is produced at the plant of separation of Vauxhall in a county Cheshire(Great Britain).
The interior of CTS Coupe practically fully copies the salon of sedan. All is done durably and from quality enough materials. On a device corymbs all is usual, from infrequently-accessed devices here only pointer of pressure of oil (down on a right clock-face). A large display shows not only navigation data but also picture from the chamber of back kind. On the spokes of helm of the button of management of cruise control heating of rim with radio-recorder. On a backside are the keys of the hand switching of CAT.
By the way, in spite of the noncontact key, an engine is led by a handle, but not button.
Front seats dispose electro-regulation, heating and ventilations. Behind a place foot sufficiently, but from a subzero roof and serious inclination of back bar tall people can feel discomfort.
Unlike CTS sedan, door knobs at a compartment – «electronic», they do not have mechanical connection with locks. Thus the Outdoor «buttons» are hidden in deepening from the back of door. In case of breakage in feet for a driver and front passenger I am and mechanical opened the car. The button of opening of luggage rack is tucked away in the pocket of the left door, but a luggage rack can be opened and by the button on key-mark.
