2015 Cadillac CTS facelift revealed with a new front and new tech

Cadillac has unveiled the updated 2015 model year CTS saloon with a new front fascia, featuring the wreathless crest as seen also on the recently unveiled ATS saloon facelift.

The updated CTS also gets standard projector-beam halogen headlamps, while high-density discharge headlights with Adaptive Forward Lighting System are optional.

Other notable highlights include illuminating door handles with Galvano polished aluminium look and active aero grille shutters.

Standard wheels are in size 17-inch, but with little extra you can upgrade to 18- or 19-inch alloys.

Tech goodies include wireless smartphone charging, Cadillac CUE with text message alerts, OnStar with 4G LTE & Wi-Fi hotspot, lane keep assist and lane change alert safety systems.

Engine range starts with a 272bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol with 295 lb-ft of torque, followed by a 321bhp 3.6-litre V6 with 275 lb-ft of torque.

Until the hot CTS-V arrives with around 600bhp, the top engine is a 420bhp 3.6-litre twin-turbo V6 exclusively available in RWD-only model, taking the CTS Vsport from 0-60mph in 4.4 seconds on to a top speed of 172mph.

All engines are linked to an eight-speed paddle-shift automatic transmission and the AWD is available with 272bhp and 321bhp engines.
