2013 Cadillac CTS Coupe Interior

The sharp, athletic angles from the exterior are carried over to the interior. Upgraded materials are used, including an elegant wood trim. For those CTS Coupes that have a navigation system, it cleverly emerges from the dash, and almost fully retracts when not in use.

Outward visibility can be a struggle as the sloping roof and hard angles create some serious blind spots.
