German car magazine AutoBild Allrad recently invited readers to participate in a poll, to judge which was their favorite AWD car of the year.
Out of field of some impressive hardware, including the Alfa Romeo Brera Q4; Bentley Continental GT; Lamborghini Gallardo and Nissan GT-R; the readers selected the Cadillac CTS AWD coupe as the overall winner.
Not surprisingly, the folks at Cadillac’s European operations were delighted. “I am very happy to see that the new presence of Cadillac on the European marketplace has been noticed and appreciated,” declared Wolfgang Schubert; Managing Director of Cadillac Europe.
The Cadillac CTS Coupe has been on sale in European markets since the fall of 2010; though around 40 percent of all European buyers so far have chosen AWD models. In some markets, notably Switzerland and Austria, AWD variants account for more than 70 percent of all CTS sales volume.
