05 CTS sports package

Recommended Posts

I am thinking of buying a used 05 Cadillac CTS with Lux & Sports package what is the difference in the ride and handling with it compared to base model I have driven several of the base models but none with Sports package.

I want it sporty but to still ride good.

I have an '05 CTS with the sport suspension. I test drove cars with both suspensions. The base model is bouncy over rough pavement and the steering is more numb. The sport suspension feels glued down to the road, has a slightly firmer ride, and the steering is more weighted, sharper and more precise. The 17" wheels also look much nicer than the tiny and cheap-looking 16" ones. I didn't think the base model was worth buying. You also get StabiliTrak with the sport package, which has saved me from the ditch or hitting other cars more than once. I think it was irresponsible of GM to not provide stability control as a standard feature on a powerful RWD car like the CTS. Unless your roads are incredibly beat up or you're a grandpa who values comfort over handling, you should get the sport suspension.
