There's no logical reason for the Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon to exist. It's a 556-horsepower, supercharged eight-cylinder rear-wheel-drive station wagon with a six-speed manual transmission (optional) for $64,000. Dozens of minivans and crossovers can shuttle you, your family and your groceries around town for significantly less money, but not a single one is anywhere near as heart-pumping.
The CTS-V Sport Wagon is the third high-performance variant of Cadillac's well-received midsize car, following the handsome sedan and lust-worthy coupe. This is the stealthy one. Your kids and neighbors don't expect a wagon to go from zero to 60 mph in less than 5 seconds.
