THE BUZZ: This is the first American-made "luxury sport wagon" worthy of the phrase. With all-wheel drive, a 3.6-liter V-6 engine, a surprising 58 cubic feet of cargo space, and lots of chrome and digital bling like the optional onboard Wi-Fi the CTS Sport Wagon drives better and has more features than a comparable BMW.
THE TEST: The smooth acceleration, combined with taut steering and responsive brakes, makes it feel more like a roadster than a wagon. On mountain roads north of Malibu and outside Denver, we couldn't find a curve that made us flinch.
THE VERDICT: This Cadillac means business. From $40,400; mpg, 17 city/27 hwy; cadillac.com
