Vehicle valuation and research company Kelley Blue Book has listed its picks for the 10 best used midsize luxury cars under $25,000 for the 2021 calendar year. Included in the list is the 2016 Cadillac CTS.
According to Kelley Blue Book, the 2016 Cadillac CTS was selected for its combination of luxury and performance, with a wide variety of engine options available. Kelley Blue Book also praised the sedan’s plethora of “high-tech features,” as well as its “comfortable and well-appointed interior.”
“Luxury cars can be too expensive for the average budget, but used luxury cars are another story,” Kelley Blue Book states. “Going used is a great way to get the features and allure of a luxury brand at a more budget-friendly price.”
As a reminder, the Cadillac CTS nameplate was produced for three generations between 2002 and 2019. The Cadillac CTS was succeeded by the Cadillac CT6 (although some believe the Cadillac CT5 is the successor to the CTS, we’ve explained why this is not the case previously).
The first-generation Cadillac CTS was offered for the 2003 through 2007 model years, the second generation was offered for the 2008 through 2015 model years, and the third-generation model was offered for the 2016 through 2019 model years. A range of models were produced for the 2016 model year, including the standard Cadillac CTS, the Cadillac CTS V-Sport, and the high-performance Cadillac CTS-V.
Performance enthusiasts will be keen to get the Cadillac CTS-V, which is equipped with the supercharged 6.2L V8 LT4 gasoline engine, producing a heady 640 horsepower and 630 pound-feet of torque. Output is routed to the rear wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission, while under the skin, the third-gen Cadillac CTS-V rides on GM’s Alpha platform.
