Car and Driver Tests CTS. Car and Driver Likes CTS.

In this case it was an AWD 2.0T with the new eight-speed auto. They did wish (again) for a simpler interior and wondered if a 5.8 to 60 time was indicative of an "overtaxed engine" (say what?). But the new eight-speed drew raves, getting better FE scores and acceleration times than their last 2.0T, which was RWD.

Their complaints are mostly nitpicks so they have an excuse to keep BMW on top in their ranks. There's no way a car with a 5.8 second 0-60 from a 4-cylinder engine can be accused of being "overtaxed."


The interior isn't over complicated either, they just need to make better CUE controls. You have two colors: red and black, and then you have a few textures. The CTS models I've sat in all impressed me with their interiors. If you want an over-complicated, over-rated interior, sit in a new Acura. Their push button shifter goes full retard and the cabin is a clusterf@#k of screens, controls, and strange design lines.

So by Comparison as SMK will say C-Class is best in class as he thinks all MB is best in class no matter what, I grabbed the current 2015 C-Class interior photo to match up and compare.




Personally there are some nice things about the MB as there is for Cadillac, both are acceptable, but I do like the flow better in the Cadillac than the MB which to me has a boy racer look to it and seems to be disjointed in the floating nav and the reminds me of Ford trucks, cheap plastic circle air vents.
