Further, the CT5 is based on Cadillac’s Alpha platform that supports both the ATS and CTS but rides on a longer wheelbase than both of those cars. Rear-wheel drive is standard, and also the all-wheel drive is available.

Ø Exterior design
The exact official design of the car is not available as of now; thus it is hard to comment on the exterior design. However, there are only spy pictures available; thus, any specific details cannot be discussed basing such images.
Ø Interior Design
Cadillac has enhanced the interior of CT5, providing more posh than plastic. Anticipated features such as wireless charging, a head-up display, and, most importantly, an eight-speaker Base audio system are available. Moreover, a host of driver-assistance technology is also available; thus, it has adaptive cruise control and lane-keeping assist. Though there are rear air vents but no dual climate-zone controls. Further, the seats are not heated, and the sunroof does not extend over the back row. The sedan has a decently sized trunk, and a hands-free decklid is optional.

So since there are no official updates about the CT5 yet, different opinions and reviews put out based on spy formations and rumors.
