More Cadillac CTS photos to go along with Michael's review.

Less bold face, for broader appeal around the world.
LEDs along leading edge a nice touch.
Aside from the headlights, a more restrained design than the first two generations of the CTS.
Vsport. Color and wheel choices make a big difference.
Rear bodysides appear flat and their edges overly squared off when viewed directly from the side.
More saturated color, sportier wheels help even more from this angle.
It's a Cadillac, so the tail lamps are vertical. I'm not a fan of the Bangled trunk.
The Vsport wheels never stop making a difference.
Red/black interior adds $1,650. More restrained color options are available.
Many lines and elements, but they're artfully integrated. Power cupholder cover to right of shifter.
Shock and awe! Sadly, these controls don't work nearly as good as they look.
The instruments can be configured in four different modes. Sport here.
Perforated leatherette with red stitching, real carbon fiber trim with red highlights.
I prefer the instruments' "balanced" mode. Right dial can also display information at its center.
Red-stitched leatherette and carbon fiber trim here as well, plus some synthetic suede.
Some unexpected and not necessarily desirable restraint: no red stitching on these. Bolsters adjust.
A couple more inches of rear legroom than in the ATS, but still feels tighter than segment average.
As in the ATS, handling a much higher priority than trunk space when designing the rear suspension.
Quick enough for nearly all drivers, but not as quick as the specs suggest it ought to be.
Vsport engine packs another 148 horsepower, but can't go toe-to-toe with competitors' turbo V8s.
