2008 Cadillac STS V6, Front View

In short: A comfortable luxury sport sedan.

The latest version of this fierce 4-door features upgrades in both appearance and technology. Its direct injection V6 engine means more power, yet an estimated 25% reduction in emissions. The STS ranges from about $40,000 to nearly $80,000, depending on desired trim (STS or STS-V) and extras. Available accessories include a DVD navigation system, side blind zone alert and lane departure warning to keep drifting drivers in line.
