2010 Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon


Cadillac is getting serious about the European market, and that’s evident with the new 2010 CTS Sport Wagon. While wagons have not always been the preference for North American customers, the extra space finds favor with European customers. The wagon was a natural evolution for Cadillac Cadillac considering the CTS was designed to compete with sedans from Germany such as the Audi A4 and the BMW 3-Series. The more aggressive lines suggest that the CTS Sport Wagon is going after A4 Avant customers.

The base engine in North America will be the 3.6-liter 263 horsepower V-6. Optional will be a the 3.6-liter with added direct injection, which increases output to 304 horsepower. There is also a 2.9-liter turbo-diesel V-6 engine option making 250 horsepower for the European and Asian markets. The gas engine V-6 Sport Wagon’s fuel economy is expected to be similar to the peak rating of the sedan’s 26 mpg highway rating. All will be available with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission as well as all-wheel drive.

Press release

Amidst the beauty and history of the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Cadillac treats car enthusiasts to a world premiere of its latest production-car design. The 2010 Cadillac CTS Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon makes its debut this weekend on the Monterey Peninsula, showcasing a dramatic design that elevates and updates the classic wagon body style.

Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon

Not unlike many historic Cadillac designs, the new CTS Sport Wagon is an unmistakable and dynamic presence. The car’s intricately cut rear profile injects fashion-forward design into the formerly utilitarian world of wagons. Cadillac’s upcoming wagon offers ample interior space and includes a range of six-cylinder engine choices, making it a compelling alternative to larger utility vehicles.

3.0 liter V-6 direct injection; 270 hp @7000 rpm and 223 lbs-ft @ 5700rpm

Based on the hot-selling CTS sport sedan, and a sister vehicle to the CTS Coupe Concept, the Sport Wagon extends the design-driven renaissance of Cadillac. Following this special premiere at Pebble Beach, the CTS Sport Wagon moves to the worldwide auto show circuit this fall – and into Cadillac dealerships in spring 2009. “The addition of this dramatically-designed Sport Wagon is well synchronized with today’s changing consumer tastes as a compelling alternative to SUVs or other larger vehicles,” says Jim Taylor, Cadillac general manager.

Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon

“This is an important step in Cadillac’s ongoing global expansion, and of course in international markets like Europe, wagons have been and continue to be very significant.” A striking profile is created with the CTS wagon, with a silhouette that suggests speed and aerodynamic efficiency. It rides on the same 113.4-inch (2,880-mm) wheelbase as the CTS sport sedan and is 0.3-inch (7 mm) shorter. However, it offers a generous cargo area of 25 cubic feet (720 liters) behind the rear seats.

Design highlights include: Signature V-shaped deck and tailgate motif Large, vertical taillamps with light-pipe technology Power-opening liftgate (via key fob or in-vehicle button) CHMSL integrated in subtle roof spoiler Integrated roof load management system with cross bars for a seamless appearance Cargo management system with adjustable in-floor containment New 19-inch wheels Larger available panoramic rear sunroof The CTS Sport Wagon, like its sedan predecessor, includes available features such as all-wheel drive, a 40-gigabyte internal hard drive, pop-up navigation screen and a hand-cut-and-sewn interior with Sapele wood accents.

“The CTS Sport Wagon is an important expansion to the Cadillac lineup worldwide,” said Taylor. Design details Dramatic planes highlight the CTS wagon’s design, including a V-shaped motif carried throughout the vehicle and carefully integrated intersections of exterior surfaces. The elements coalesce in a dramatic fashion, creating tension that emphasizes the vehicle’s performance. “It’s a taut design that not only suggests sleekness, but delivers it,” said Clay Dean, global design director for Cadillac.

“Indeed, the drama of the sedan is amplified in the CTS Sport Wagon, as the centerline cue that is part of the exterior and interior is more prominent and plays a stronger role in defining the design at the rear of the vehicle.” The emotion of the CTS Sport Wagon’s design is carried by a number of nuanced details. The liftgate area, for example, is a confluence of angles and planes that typifies the vehicle’s design tension. Cadillac’s “V” motif is most prominent here, culminating in a spine at the center of the liftgate that is accented with a subtle spoiler at the top of the backlight.

Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon

The rear quarter panels extend slightly beyond the inward-angled planes of the V, creating a distinctive W shape at the rear of the vehicle. Large, prominent vertical taillamps – with Cadillac’s signature light pipe technology – are the final, dramatic touches to the rear-end styling. “The more you study the rear of the CTS Sport Wagon, the more you see,” said Dean. “Functionality was certainly a guiding factor during development, but so was the idea to inject emotion into the normally sedate wagon category.” One of the more interesting integrations of form and function is found in the seamless roof load management system.

Rather than stylized stanchions, brackets and cross bars that protrude above the roof line, the CTS Sport Wagon’s system blends with the roofline, maintaining an uninterrupted appearance. The center section of the roof panel angles downward inside the roof edges, allowing an unobtrusive placement of the cross bars – and creating a subtle fin effect at the trailing edges of the rear panels. “They’re not fins in the classic sense, but they work to help disguise the cargo load system and, yes, they acknowledge Cadillac’s design heritage,” said Dean.

The interior of the Sport Wagon is common with the much-acclaimed sport sedan, including streamlined instrumentation, LED lighting and hand-cut-and-sewn accents with French stitching. Powertrains Direct injection technology helps the CTS offer more power while maintaining fuel economy and lowering emissions. It delivers fuel more precisely to increase the efficiency of combustion. This means less fuel is consumed and lower emissions created. With the CTS Sport Wagon’s 3.6L V-6, direct injection translates to 304 horsepower (227 kW)*, no loss of fuel efficiency and a 25-percent drop in cold-start hydrocarbon emissions. It also runs on less expensive regular unleaded gasoline.

Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon

The Sport Wagon’s fuel economy is expected to be similar to the peak rating of the existing sport sedan’s 26 mpg highway rating. The standard 3.6L VVT engine that produces 263 horsepower (196 kW) and 253 lb.-ft. of torque (343 Nm) serves as the base engine in North America. Just like the CTS sport sedan, the V-6 engines are matched with fuel-saving six-speed transmissions, including an Aisin six-speed manual or an electronically controlled Hydra-Matic 6L50 six-speed automatic. As is the case on the sport sedan, CTS Sport Wagon includes AWD as an option. An efficient 2.9L turbo-diesel engine is being developed for CTS models primarily in European and Asian markets. It is a compact, dual overhead cam, four-valve V-6 engine from GM’s family of diesel engines that delivers optimal fuel economy as well as reduced emissions and noise. The engine is rated at 184 kW (250 hp).

Driving dynamics The robust and dynamic CTS chassis infuses the new wagon with a great balance of performance and luxury. It uses an independent short/long arm ( SLA) front suspension system and a multi-link rear suspension. The multi-link rear suspension features a fully isolated subframe that helps deliver excellent suspension kinematics, contributing to a superior ride and excellent handling. Advanced chassis technology in the form of Cadillac’s StabiliTrak electronic chassis control system integrates the car’s standard four-channel ABS with the full-function traction control, hydraulic brake assist and engine drag control systems to deliver a safer, more confident driving experience. Additional chassis details include a structure-enhancing tower-to-tower brace under the hood; large, four-wheel disc brakes and premium steering.

Like other historic Cadillac designs, the new CTS Sport Wagon has an unmistakable and dynamic presence. Dramatic styling, ample interior space and a range of fuel and emissions-efficient, six-cylinder engines are expected to make the CTS Sport Wagon a compelling alternative to larger luxury sport utility vehicles and luxury wagons.

There is no mistaking the CTS Sport Wagon for anything but a contemporary Cadillac. Signature exterior cues include horizontal spline lines and dihedral, v-shaped hood. The CTS Sport Wagon strikes a sporting stance, with a wide track.

Powertrains

Direct injection technology helps the CTS Sport Wagon offer more power while maintaining fuel economy and lowering emissions. It delivers fuel more precisely to increase the efficiency of combustion. This means less fuel is consumed and lower emissions created. Direct injection reduces hydrocarbons produced by up to 25 percent on cold starts.

3.6 liter V-6 VVT with spark-ignition, direct injection; 304 hp @ 6400 rpm and 273 lbs-ft @ 5200 rpm

The CTS Sport Wagon features Cadillac’s 3.6L direct injection V-6 engine that produces 304 horsepower (227 kW), while operating on regular unleaded gasoline. A smaller, 3.0L version of the direct injection V-6 engine will be added as the new standard engine for the CTS Sport Wagon in the summer of 2009, offering improved fuel economy.

As is the case on the sport sedan, CTS Sport Wagon offers AWD as an option.

An efficient 2.9L turbo-diesel engine is being developed for models primarily in European and Asian markets. It is a compact, dual overhead cam, four-valve V-6 engine from GM’s family of diesel engines that delivers optimal fuel economy as well as reduced emissions and noise. The engine is rated at 250 horsepower (184 kW).

The power unit is complemented by either a six-speed automatic transmission with steering wheel shift controls or a six-speed manual transmission. Meanwhile the chassis features Brembo brakes, Magnetic Ride Control suspension with two modes and race car-proven Performance Traction Management, which manages torque for optimal traction.

Driving dynamics

The robust and dynamic CTS chassis infuses the new wagon with a great balance of performance and luxury. It uses an independent short/long arm ( SLA) front suspension system and a multi-link rear suspension.

Competitors and press reviews

"Oh, but the car. Yes, we plan on saying many things about this unjustly doomed car. The car is good. First, we think the CTS Sport Wagon looks fantastic. We love the center crease of the tailgate. We love the little quasi-tailfins created by the peaked taillamps. We love the overhanging center high-mounted brake light. We even genuinely like the odd D-pillar that is thicker at the top than where it meets the body. Also, it drives like any other CTS, which is a very good thing. And it looks fantastic." (InsideLine)

Cadillac CTS Sport Wagon

"Like any CTS, the Sport Wagon offers a luxurious and entertaining driving experience. Rear visibility is a bit tunnel-like, but not as badly impeded as you’d imagine when looking at the design from outside—the rearmost pillar aligns roughly within the area already blocked by rear headrests. We’d think twice about choosing the 19-inch wheels—we noticed an SUV-like ride harshness and noise level that would make the all-weather utility of the smaller wheels our choice." (PopularMechanics)

"If any more than two adults will be riding in your CTS, the Wagon’s the winner over the CTS sedan for sure. Mainly, it’s because of the vertical height and longer rear doors. The CTS sedan can be a tough clamber for big guys and gals; the cutouts for feet are particularly small. The Sport Wagon’s relatively easy to enter and exit, and that makes all the difference for those extra passengers. However, the SRX still sits taller and has larger door openings, and a touch more leg and head room in back. It’s a good thing those features don’t mean as much for the crew fascinated by the CTS Sport Wagon’s features, handling and its artfully glitzy look. If you want rear-drive balance and feel, there’s simply nothing like the Sport Wagon in Cadillac showrooms." (MotorAuthority)

Conclusion

Until recently we were skeptical when it came about station wagon. But lets face it, there are families out there you want more than a spacious family car. And for them Cadillac creates the CTS Sport Wagon. You will ask why the station wagon and not the sedan? Simple, because with the station wagon version you get the same entertaining driving experience as the sedan, but much more space.

Like any other CTS model the station wagon comes with the same excellent handling, brakes, and steering, the same luxurious interior and the same technologies. There is only one request we have for Cadillac: we want a CTS-V Sport Wagon version!

It doesn’t look attractive to me. The extra space on its back doesn’t really look good. I think it’s quite too much for a boot.

We all know you aren’t the target market. Therefore your needs don’t really apply here.
Enjoy your Mirage.

Looks more like a hatchback than a wagon.

I like it too but the MPG and torque are godawful compared to American/Korean cars that are coming out now. I bet it requires premium fuel also.

Looks like a new XLR in the background.

Comfy seat and obviously another sporty wagon.

Nothing to get too excited about, it’s merely the 1999 Cadillac Evoq concept out on display:

CTS looks definitely amazing. The interior of this car is pretty impressive. I guess it gives a comfortable feeling when you sit inside.

Nice car, definitely looks luxury and I like the interior design because it looks very comfortable and relaxing inside this car. Also, It seems that their major weakness has been styling, considered the more staid option compared to their sedan bases.

Definitely, One of the most powerful and fastest models off Cadillac edition. Not a perfect car for the family but only for the singles.

I don’t know why GM did that for a fact that they want to propose an eco-friendly car and diesel is included on that proposal. Anyways back to the topic, I saw this car on a magazine and find it expensive on its level. Consider that it has a v6 engine and really have a good horse power figure but if you compare it to its competitor, this car maybe a second choice for the prospect consumers.

I have to say that I haven’t really noticed anything within the “wagon” categories of cars for the last few years as I’m interested into larger cars and I think that not a lot of people are interested in wagon cars no more as SUV or mini vans are a good car for soccer moms. It has better and more comfortable performance than wagons. But, this wagon, is something that will surely be popular to mom/dad out there.

GM has elected not to offer an efficient 2.9-liter turbo-diesel in the US as it is in Europe and Asia." damn YOU Gm! I want diesel !
