2020 CT6 Sedan Interior

The interior of the sedan is dominated by clean lines and simplicity, but the cabin experience of the CT6 falls behind the class-leading interiors of both of its rivals from BMW and Mercedes-Benz. The design team at Cadillac had good intentions when it chucked different types of leather and trim inserts into the interior of the sedan, but the inside of the CT6 shows clear evidence of less premium materials than those used by rivals. One of them is the material used for the dash in the Luxury trim, which seems more suited to a lower segment and a car wearing a golden bowtie instead of the Cadillac shield. The rest of the interior also tends to lose marks in key aspects with seats that aren't supportive enough to truly compete with its more expensive competitors, and a limited amount of rear passenger space.

Seating and Interior Space

The large luxury sedan segment thrives on the principle of big numbers when it comes to passenger space - more often associated as being vehicles in which the back seats take priority over those up front. Looking purely at the numbers, the CT6 doesn't exactly perform poorly, especially with 40.4 inches of rear legroom and 38 inches of rear headroom, but the BMW 7 Series does four inches better in terms of space to stretch out, highlighting the CT6's lack of class-leading rear space. The front perches offer nearly as much space as the rears though; although the problem with the foremost seats is that what they offer in terms of space, they lack in lateral support. Nevertheless, they offer enough comfort for long trips and boast 14-way power-adjustability that do well to aid the driver's visibility. And, if that isn't enough, 16- and 20-way power-adjustable front seats are available, too. The front seats also offer heating as standard. Additionally available ventilated seats can be opted for along with massage seats. Regrettably, the rear seats don't offer the kind of adjustability offered by rivals, and while the CT6 still seats five, those five will be happier in the cabin of a 7 Series.

Interior Colors and Materials

A host of different trim inserts and upholstery options are available for all three CT6 models. Starting with the Luxury, two no-cost leather upholstery options of Jet Black or Sahara Beige with Jet Black accents are available. This model comes standard with black trim inserts. The Premium Luxury offers the same color options as the base model, but with Chevron perforated inserts, and it gets the addition of Dark Auburn leather upholstery with Jet Black accents. Wood inserts make their way onto the dashboard and steering wheel as well as the door cards of this mid-spec trim. On the range-topping Platinum derivative, Jet Black semi-aniline leather upholstery is standard, along with the option of semi-aniline leather in Very Light Cashmere with Maple Sugar accents, although both options come with darker wood inserts that are also added to the center console.

2020 CT6 Sedan Trunk and Cargo Space

The CT6's trunk space offering is in the middle of the ranks, and the rearmost part of the sedan offers 15.8 cubic feet of real estate. This figure is bested by the BMW 7 Series' offering of 18.2 cubes, but the Cadillac manages to beat out the Mercedes-Benz S-Class' 12.3-cube allotment. The rear seats don't have the ability to fold, but they have a rear pass-through. The BMW may offer more space, but the CT6's offering is enough to hold around six carry-on suitcases inside the trunk, meaning it'll serve you well if you're regularly jet-setting or on your way to the golf course.

Internal storage is much of a muchness for cars in this segment, with cupholders for four occupants, sizable door pockets, front console storage, a glovebox, and a fairly large cubby beneath the center front armrest.

2020 CT6 Sedan Infotainment and Features

Features

The CT6 comes well-equipped in terms of standard features on all three trim levels, and the base model gets nearly all of the features offered by the top of the range Platinum trim. A panoramic sunroof, remote start, keyless entry, and push-button start are standard features. These are joined at a base level by a multifunction leather-clad steering wheel, 14-way power-adjustable heated front seats, and dual-zone climate control, while the Premium Luxury is upgraded with a heated steering wheel, quad-zone climate control and 16-way adjustable front seats, as well as a 12-inch digital instrument cluster and head-up display. The Platinum receives 20-way power-adjustable seats. Standard driver-assist features are certainly commendable and at a base level, they include automatic emergency braking, pedestrian monitoring, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and cross-traffic alert both in the front and the rear, as well as blind-spot monitoring and standard cruise control, although from the middle trim this becomes adaptive. The most notable driver assist is Super Cruise feature, which offers semi-autonomous driving abilities on highways, touted as the next step forward in autonomy for the Cadillac brand.

Infotainment

We detested the old trackpad that was found on the CT6 of yore, but we haven't had to worry about that since 2019, thanks to the addition of a much more efficient click wheel. The infotainment system is still too multi-layered and is about as easy to understand as quantum physics, but once you're exposed to it over a long period, you'll learn the tech ways of the Caddy. A standard 10.2-inch touchscreen comes standard on all trim levels and enables Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth streaming. Audio is brought to life via an eight-speaker Bose sound system in base form, but stepping up to either of the upper trims sees the inclusion of a premium 34-speaker Bose Panaray sound system. A 4G Wi-Fi hotspot is standard on all trims, while with the upgraded sound system you also receive two ten-inch rear displays with two sets of wireless headphones, dual USB ports, and an HDMI input.
