Consumer Reports Praises the 2016 Cadillac CT6
It wasn’t that long ago when Consumer Reports didn’t have too many nice things to say about GM automobiles, but it sure seems to be changing its tune, especially when you take into account its glowing review of the 2016 Cadillac CT6 sedan.

Consumer Reports tested a Caddy CT6 with the available all-wheel drive system, optional 20-inch wheels, Active Chassis package with magnetic ride control, and twin turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine rated at 404 horsepower.
Compliments were paid towards the weight of the new CT6, which is approximately 1,000 pounds lighter than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Consumer Reports also enjoyed the CT6’s nimble handling, quiet interior, lighted door handles, and its price tag, which is tens of thousands less than many of its German competitors.
There were a few minor complaints though. The reviewer (in the video below) did not enjoy the placement of the seat heater buttons or the location of the turn signal lever, as it was described as being too high. In addition, while the CUE infotainment system is noticeably faster, Consumer Reports says it still lacks intuitive controls and buttons.
The highlight of the review–for those wishing the best for the CT6—might have been when the reviewer said, “Ironically, this Cadillac drives more like a fun, hard-charging German sedan than some of its Teutonic rivals.”
