Now that Cadillac has introduced its new 2014 CTS sedan to the world, the fate of the CTS coupe and wagon is up for discussion.
The goal of the new CTS sedan is to compete within the mid-luxury segment, allowing the ATS to target the entry-to-mid level luxury segment such as the BMW 3-Series and Audi A4. According to sources close to the American luxurty automaker, the CTS coupe and wagon will be built alongside the new sedan for “at least a year,” but it is likely that after that, both models will be axed.
It’s no surprise that the wagon is going, considering its sales has been weak at best. Last year, the wagon accounted for a mere seven percent of all CTS sales, and one in three of those were high-performance V models. As for a sporty Cadillac coupe model, it’ll come in the form of an ATS coupe. A competitive, entry-level luxury sports coupe will allow the American automaker to compete against other popular coupes such as the upcoming BMW 4-Series.
So if you’re on the fence of getting your hands on a CTS coupe or wagon, you might want to act fast. It’s just a matter of time before they become a thing of the past.
