Cadillac at one time was famous for a huge luxury sedan, which went all the celebrities. Luxurious but gradually the image faded, and in the model range there is not a single truly gorgeous cars. Fortunately, the Americans came to their senses, demonstrating to the world СТ6 — new flagship, designed to regain the position of the brand. Whether justified these hopes?
The new Cadillac CT6, New Cadillac CT6
Occasion: premiere of the most luxurious Cadillac.
The scene: Spain.
Impressions: looks СТ6 thoroughbred Cadillac. Traditional of Cadillac’s angular body, coupled with impressive dimensions (length over 5 meters) in Spanish citizens travelling mostly on low-cost small car, caused a continued interest. But on the Park they looked in the salon — curious! By the way, there is something to see. Newfangled virtual instrument panel, a huge 10-inch screen on the centre console and a stylish T-shaped machine selector to the look that is necessary. In the back row situation at least not worse. At the disposal of passengers — separate seats with elektroregulirovkami, your control unit is “weather”, multimediasystem. Luxury furnished!

More recently, a large American sedans did not differ drayverskoy chassis settings. And Cadillacs were like that. But now everything has changed. On the twisty Spanish track Cadillac СТ6 confidently breezing even “stycznia” turns. Stable motion promotes all-wheel drive and excellent maneuverability — polnopravnym chassis. Yes, the rear wheels of the Caddy is also rotated a small angle, of course. In General, this sedan is capable of a lot to surprise, but read more about this in SP, 2018, No. 04.

Prospects: despite the chic interior and decent ride quality, СТ6 unlikely to be in the Russian bestseller.

For the successful promotion of the model is not enough!
Rating: the Americans made a quite competitive (Yes that there — cool!) sedan. Even against German classmates Cadillac CT6 doesn’t look pale.
