The Cadillac CTS. A car that has received many accolades by the motoring press. However, I’m not one of them. I’ve never really cared for the standard CTS, but the V, yes. With that aside, one thing that has really never struck a chord with anyone who has put their love for Cadillac aside were the seats. In my long experience with them, they’re not very supportive, especially for those of us who like some good knee supports and thigh support, as well.
Now, though, if you want some truly supportive sport seats for your CTS sedan or coupe, you can click the option box and pay an additional $2,800. They are 14-way adjustable and offered on the Premium and Performance CTS models. Maybe GM will talk to Recaro about making some seats that would actually make the Corvette worth driving around turns. The Corvette is a wonderful car to drive through the twisty stuff, it’s just not very supportive. Unfortunately, GM has said these seats are too wide for the Corvette’s cabin.
Cadillac Expands Offering Of Recaro Performance Seats
DETROIT– Cadillac today announced expanded availability of Recaro performance seats in the 2010 CTS Sport Sedan. Recaro 14-way adjustable seats are now available in limited quantity as a $2800 option on the Premium and Performance trim levels of the 2010 model CTS Sport Sedans.
Previously, Recaro seats were exclusively offered on the 556 hp CTS-V high performance model. The popularity of the option on the V-Series model spurred Cadillac to extend the option further. Recaro is the considered one of the world’s preeminent performance seating manufacturers. The company has deep experience in motorsports that it applies to production auto seats, including those available in some of the world’s most prestigious high-performance cars.
In the CTS, the Recaro seats include adjustable back and thigh support for the driver and front-seat passenger, including a seat cushion extender, among the 14 total adjustable elements. The seats feature French-stitched leather, with microfiber suede inserts in the center sections of the cushions and seatbacks, as well as heating and cooling functions.
Recaro seats will also be available this summer on the new 2011 CTS Coupe and CTS-V Coupe luxury sports cars.
