The third generation CTS is rapidly approaching. Based on the new platform that also underpins the ATS (Alpha, by name), the new CTS should also be expected to be class-leading in mass – much as the ATS is the lowest weight car in its class.
This also marks the first time that Cadillac has embraced the size of the mid-tier competition and will be matching the competition in size against the BMW 5-series and Mercedes E-Class rather than avoiding full competition by playing in an in-between space.
Below, you’ll see the new CTS in heavy disguise video-ed on the open road. It is clear here that the new CTS is noticeably larger than the current CTS. We should get a chance to see the new CTS undisguised in the coming months in preparation for its on-sale date as a 2014 model.
