Redesigned back in 2008, CTS continues the same design for 2012 with minor upliftments. The signature Cadillac cuts and curves makes the CTS look as aggressive as a wild Lion. The beauty doubles with the vertical head and tail LED lamps. HID Head lamps integrated with Adaptive Forward Lighting to read speed and direction of steering and accordingly set the focus of lights. The sporty rectangular grille which is finished in chrome is stylish and rightfully showcases the prestigious Cadillac logo. For those to want to take this beauty to the highest level, Cadillac offers the CTS-V (sports version) with darker grille, large 19” alloy wheels and special V-series tail lamp display.
