It's all subjective. I think both the coupe and the wagon are hideous, but I understand why GM designed them. For me, it was (and is, should I ever decide to buy again) the sedan. It's got the right proportions and just looks the part.The wagon grows on you however the coupe is by far the best looking of the 3. It's also heavier.
It all depends on what the punk kid is driving. There are faster cars out there than the CTS-V and the skidpad numbers it can pull are relatively average among today's high performance car.I would get the coupe, but the wagon has a certain appeal to me as well. Not only can it carry more stuff, but the sleeper factor is in play. Some punk kid comes up and insults you for driving a wagon and you can put his ricer mobile and him into his place.
*does not condone street racing*
True, but the chances of a punk kid driving a GT-R, Z06, ZR1, Aventador, etc is pretty rare. I mean the snot nose kid who has a S2000 that is riced up and thinks a wagon can't keep up with it.It all depends on what the punk kid is driving. There are faster cars out there than the CTS-V and the skidpad numbers it can pull are relatively average among today's high performance car.
The Z06 in the hands of a good driver will beat the CTS-V. The best the CTS-V has been able to do is 4.1-4.3 seconds seconds 0-60 quarter mile in 12.5 seconds@116 MPH. The Z06 will do 0-60 in about 3.5-3.8 seconds and 1/4 mile in 11.8 seconds @123 MPH. It's pretty much a drivers race, but drivers being equal, Z06 is faster.I've done my fair share of beating up Z06's 600cc bikes ect. I Would love to have the 6 speed manual but those are harder to find than cheap gas right now. I did get the white hardtop with graphite wheels which is also a rare find so I can't really complain having the auto. Is still fun to drive just not as fun. It shifts in .08 of a second!
Yes it is .. especially considering it's one of the very few diesel cars in the US. I was a work a couple months ago and speaking with a British guest who told me he has an SUV in the UK ... however, unlike ours, it's a 1.6L diesel which gets 60mpg. I can't find a US version of any SUV that breaks the 30mpg mark ... hardly surprising since NONE are diesels.Good choice
