ELECTRONIC LIMITED-SLIP DIFFERENTIAL
Grip the road. The CTS V-Sport includes an electronic Limited-Slip Differential (eLSD) that uses vehicle sensors and driver inputs to determine the optimum amount of engagement for the conditions.
This optimized torque split between the rear wheels allows for precise steering feel, enhanced stability, and maximum traction through corners.
DRIVER ASSIST PACKAGE
Technology that anticipates. The available Driver Assist Package uses a number of high-tech features to help lessen impact during a collision, or avoid it altogether. The package includes Adaptive Cruise Control, which uses radar to detect and maintain a safe distance from vehicles ahead, even in stop-and-go traffic.9
9. Safety features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times.
DRIVER AWARENESS PACKAGE
Advanced peace of mind. The available Driver Awareness Package8 includes a plethora of safety and security features to help assist your drive. Forward Collision Alert uses a forward-facing front camera to detect and alert you if an impact is imminent. Lane Keep Assist may gently guide you back in your lane by turning the steering wheel if the vehicle approaches a detected lane marking without the use of a turn signal. The Rear Cross-Traffic Alert feature uses sensors to sweep the sides of CTS when you back out of parking spots and alerts you to approaching vehicles.

From the sculptural inlaid hood to the LEDs that light the way brilliantly, every detail adds up to a look that signals its on-road capabilities.
ACTIVE AERO GRILLE SHUTTERS
A concealed advantage. Hidden behind the grille, the active aero grille shutters6 automatically close to maximize aerodynamics when additional engine cooling is not required.
6. Not available on V-Sport models.
Dynamic even standing still. The crisp lines and fluid, sculptural elements of the inlaid hood yield a liquid-like reflective surface, making CTS appear to be in motion, even when it's still.
INTEGRATED REAR SPOILER
A sleek take on utility. The rear spoiler of the CTS manages critical airflow for aerodynamic efficiency and a firmly planted feel at higher speeds. At the same time, 48 bright LEDs light up when stopping to signal to vehicles behind.
