The study rates vehicle problems experienced during the past 12 months by original owners of 3-year-old, or 2011 model year, vehicles.

Escalade received the highest dependability award in the Large Premium CUV segment. Cadillac’s prior large sedan, called DTS, ranked highest in a tie in the Large Premium Car segment.

“Excellent quality and lasting value are central expectations for luxury consumers,” said Uwe Ellinghaus, chief marketing officer, Global Cadillac. “This is a focus as we continue the ongoing elevation of the Cadillac brand.”

Cadillac CTS Named Among 2014 Car and Driver 10 Best

The Cadillac CTS has once again been named one of Car and Driver’s 10 Best Cars. This is the sixth consecutive year that a CTS model has been on the list. The CTS/CTS-V was named a 10 Best Car in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012. These 10 cars offer the highest quality overall driving experience for the best value in their respected segments.

2014-Cadillac-CTS “CTS is Cadillac‘s centerpiece, and earning this major accolade represents another important step in our mission,” said Bob Ferguson, senior vice president Global Cadillac.

The Cadillac CTS is a reoccurring name on the 10 Best list, but for the first time in a while, a non-V model has earned a spot. According to C&D, the 2014 CTS “is now unequivocally the best-handling car in the mid-size luxury segment.” Which sounds like it would be enough to earn it a spot on the list even if the rest of the car wasn’t improved massively over the previous generation, which it is.

Other cars on the list were the Audi A6/A7, BMW 3-4 Series, Ford Fiesta ST, Honda Accord, Mazda3, Mazda6, Porsche Boxster/Cayman and the Golf GTI.
