I'd have to say that the CTS-V is about more than just straight line power. For starters, look at its Ring lap time. Spanked the M3 by over 15 seconds.

CTS-V is not in the same ball park as M3, M5, or M6 interior which feel more substantial in interior fit and finish and quality of material. Ditto goes for Audi, MB, Jaguar, or even Lexus competitors interiors they all are superior to the CTS interior.

On the other hand it is one of the best interiors among USA made cars. Anyone that is buying the CTS-V knows it is not for the interior it is for a great performance bargain and overall decent pkg.
I'd agree with pretty much everything said here. I thought the CTS-V nav. screen was chintzy but IMHO the E9X M3 interior is pretty crappy too. That's coming from an E90 owner. Just looks outdated. Materials are nice though.
