16. CTS

Year: 2002
Complex Says: Today, Cadillac has some of the most distinctive styling of any brand. That all started with the "Art and Science" design language on the original CTS. The new design language made the cars look thoroughly modern, while incorporating nods to design elements of Cadillacs past. The almost origami-like creases gave the car a certain (forgive the pun) edginess. And they helped make the CTS promptly shake off any lingering geriatric image that GM's luxury brand may have been plagued with. To top it all off, the CTS marked the return to a rear-wheel drive format, meaning that Cadillacs could be serious performance cars indeed.
