The STS (Seville Touring Sedan) is a midsize luxury car manufactured and sold by Cadillac.

The STS is the successor to the Cadillac Seville. That car used the STS name, standing for “Seville Touring Sedan” on upscale performance-oriented versions from at least 1988. In 1992, Cadillac split the Seville line into STS and less performance-oriented SLS (for “Seville Luxury Sedan”) trim lines. The next year, the STS got Cadillac’s then-new Northstar System, including the aluminium DOHC L37 “Northstar” V8 engine. Throughout its existence, the STS was Cadillac’s highest-priced sedan model. Worldwide, the STS is Cadillac’s flagship model. In the United States and Canada, the STS is positioned between the mid-size CTS and larger DTS, and is priced above the DTS.

The Cadillac STS is given an overall “Good” score in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety frontal crash test. And an “Acceptable” rating in the side impact test.[1] In the side impact test injury measurements to the driver’s pelvis was rated “Poor” and for the torso “Acceptable.”[2]

The front wheel drive Seville was retired in 2004, replaced by an entirely new STS model based on the rear wheel drive GM Sigma platform. All wheel drive is offered as an option, the first Cadillac sedan to be available with this drive system. The STS carries on the Magnetic Ride Control suspension, which has bragging rights as being the ‘fastest reacting suspension ever,’ before it was ever utilized on newer Corvettes and Ferraris.
