Like other cars in the segment, however, the CTS could use a touch more elbow room. The cabin is comfortable, particularly the front seats, but on the whole, the feel is snug. The rear seats are somewhat tight in the sedan, and more difficult to access the low-roofed Coupe. The Sport Wagon alleviates some of this with longer rear doors. In all three, the sport seats are inferior in comfort the base seats, with a ridge of padding running down the middle of the back. Despite these minor quibbles with space and comfort, the overall look, feel, and accommodations are very nice. Base models come with a "leatherette" upholstery, but most models found on dealer lots will offer a supple and fine leather.

Even base-model CTSs are loaded, with standard Bluetooth connectivity; power accessories; automatic dual-zone climate control; power driver seat; automatic headlmaps; and more. The Sport Wagon adds a standard power liftgate. And if the base spec isn't enough, there are the available upgrades, including: a panormaic sunroof; an easy-to-use, high-tech entertainment system with hard-drive storage; navigation with real-time traffic data; ventilated seats; and even a pet cover for the wagon's cargo area. Other options include 18- or 19-inch wheels, suspension packages, and a range of interior and exterior appearance tweaks.
