Key is to have a different people mover when needful. My Grand Cherokee does that (and is within an inch and a quarter of the same length as a CTS coupe). Coupe has pleanty of room for two on a trip with the rear seat bottom removed and the back folded down.

Yeah not unless they are dwarfs are they even getting back there let alone sit comfortably.
The looks and styling of the coupe not to mention all my previous cars have been sedans and I rarely had backseat passengers sold me on going with the coupe. It has its drawbacks ( trunk space, backseat) but overall after whining about it I'm happy with the purchase
My wife is 4 feet 11 inches maybe and is very nimble.
My best friend's wife is 4ft 9 inches on a good day and very nimble .

They have no problem with the Coupe's back seats.

They say they are very comfortable.
You just have to pick the correct people.

Suspect meant "nimble" and not the first "n" word I thought. Where's that rabbit ?
Still would take a different car if need to seat four, CTS is best configured as a two-seater with lots of luggage space.

Have a '12 Performance Coupe and love it! Bought it w/ 34K & approaching 45K (2 years ownership) , thinking of listing it for sale soon (coupes seem to be moving pretty well out here). IMHO, coupe ownership is like XLR ownership- you know the short comings going in (teeny back seat & trunk), but the limited production, low, wide look and interior comfort offset it for me. Park a stock coupe & sedan next to each other and the coupe will draw the attention 90% of the time (all things being equal).

When I was looking I definitely wanted a 2014+ CTS coupe. I thank God I only found and bought a 4-door sedan! (2014, 4WD, 3.6L) Looks great and if you want to really impress more than just one person it's the only way to go IMO.

Hey guys, I'm new to the group and to the Caddy world. Just got a 2013 CTS as a daily and wanted to share my thoughts. Always loved the CTS -V however, can't have 2 project cars
🙈
(Especially when I moved locations constantly). Currently own a 1994 RX-7 and that one it's enough. Anyway, I'm glad to be a proud CTS owner & hype to bring Cadillac content
✌🏽

Welcome to the forum. There a lot of folks like you who drive Cadillac CTS. I own a 2012 CTS Performance Coupe and a 2009 CTS-V. I love both of them. Some of us tweak our CTS-V to put 500hp at the back tires without going in the motor. Loved your assessment video. Spot on.

The sedan has "normal" hinges, not those garbage truck dumpster lift arms you guys have in the trunk of your coupes.
Look at a Coupe with the trunk lid open. There is literally no way to make the gas lifts work. This is one of the few times an American car maker was so seduced by the looks that they extended the middle finger to function. Given the looks, it's hard to fault them for it.

You want to complain, complain about the 1995-99 Monte Carlo. It was a W-body. I've had three W-bodies that had gas lifts. That stupid thing had bigger hinges than the Coupe.

I'm fully aware of the coupe trunk hinges, space, and how they work.

Who's complaining? I was answering this question...

Only car I've ever had (and had lots) with trunk hinges like that. What were they thinking ? Is the sedan that bad ?

The Coupe is the Coupe. It is not a family car, it is not a wagon or a sedan and should not be compared to anything except another coupe.
CTS Coupe has been described as ''Emotion on four wheels...'' by Ed Welburn, VP of GM Global Design. The Coupe bears a simple but highly detailed body, rich luxury features and a Nürburgring-tuned chassis.

No question, the coupe is unique.
