Default CTS Coupe earns MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Award



Quote:
DETROIT – MotorWeek, television’s longest-running automotive series, announced this week the Cadillac CTS Sport Coupe won the Best Sport Coupe category in its 2011 Drivers’ Choice Awards.

“This ultra-modern sports coupe is above all else, an extreme head-turner,” said MotorWeek host John Davis. “Even though it’s a 2+2, rear seat legroom shrinks by less than inch from the sedan. Now add to that two very healthy powertrains -- including the V-Series’ roaring 556-horsepower V8 – and excellent overall handling and braking, and we think the CTS Coupe is the right way for Cadillac to show it’s ready to take on all comers.”
The CTS Coupe will be featured on the special MotorWeek 2011 Drivers’ Choice episode which begins airing Saturday, February 12, on PBS stations. The episode will debut February 22 on Discovery Channel’s HD Theater.

The CTS Coupe, introduced for the 2011 model year, joined the highly acclaimed CTS line-up, which also features the CTS Sport Sedan and CTS Sport Wagon. The CTS family’s list of recently won accolades includes:

Kind of sour grapes, huh?
But you see, most of those awards went to the V version of the CTS. In the picture is the CTS-V.
And the list is missing the Playboy car of the year that goes to the coupe also.

the back end is too high.

if the wedge shape had been dialed back just a bit, and the front end were lower over the front tires, the car would look longer and lower.
