Cadillac has announced pricing information for its new compact sedan. With a starting price of $37,890, the 2020 Cadillac CT5 is $3,355 less expensive than a base 2019 BWW 3 Series, and $2,305 less expensive than a base Audi A4. It also undercuts the Lexus IS by $1,695.
The CT5 comes standard with a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine making 237 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque and pairing to a 10-speed automatic transmission. Other standard features include a 10-inch touchscreen with rotary controller, keyless entry and push-button start, OnStar, and a safety suite including forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, and automatic braking.
Priced from $41,690, the Premium Luxury trim focuses on opulence, offering a warm maple sugar leather and wood interior. Sport models, available from $42,690, get a more industrial-looking cabin. Opting for all-wheel drive instead of rear-wheel drive will add $2,600 to the price of a base model or the Sport model, but it’s a $3,090 upgrade on the Premium Luxury trim.
Cadillac has not yet announced pricing for models with the 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine, which pack 335 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque and are mated to the 10-speed auto. Also forthcoming is pricing info on the upcoming 355-hp V-Series model and Super Cruise models.
The CT5 is a new nameplate and effectively replaces both the ATS and CTS sedans. It rides on GM’s next-gen rear-drive platform that promises a smoother, quieter ride. Check out our First Look for more on the 2020 Cadillac CT5.
