THE CAR: 2010 CTS V6 SPORT WAGON

This is a caddy!  Ok, it’s not the traditional caddy. This is a caddy wagon, but it still makes a statement every time it’s on the road!  Heads turn, eyes get wide and envy takes over when you drive a Cadillac. And here’s why –  There is nothing standard or ordinary about the look or drive.  You’ll never look at a wagon the same again.
