The sedan is also fitted with Cadillac’s Enhanced Safety Strategy II package, which includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Mitigation, Safety Alert for the driver’s seat and electronic stability control (StabiliTrak). The updates CUE system features Sogou Pinyin Chinese handwriting recognition and comes with integrated iPhone voice controls.

Inside, Chinese consumers will get cut-and-sewn leather, walnut wood, metallic trim and adjustable front and back seats. Both the 28T Platinum Edition and 36S Platinum Edition will include an additional chamois ceiling.
