Cadillac Catera

Built in Germany, small and rear-wheel drive, the Catera signalled a new beginning of sorts for Cadillac — and was the first sign that the American luxury brand wanted to challenge the German luxury marques.

Introduced in 1996 and lasting until around 2001, the Catera was powered by a 149kW 3-litre V6 hooked up to a 4-speed automatic.
