At a glance, the Cadillac DeVille looks like an anachronism. One look at its vast dimensions, two-ton curb weight and formal roofline suggests the bad old days--numb steering, football field stopping distances, and the agility of a gimpy water buffalo.

But that's not the case, particularly with the DeVille Concours.

Yes, the DeVilles--standard, Concours and the new d'Elegance edition--are designed to cater to folks who prioritize well-padded comfort and luxurious amenities over everything else. But these are far more capable Caddies than their bloated ancestors.

Our DeVille Concours tester was equipped with Cadillac's new stability-enhancing electronic magic, as well as the myriad creature comforts that lend pleasure to long trips. We were pleasantly astonished by its capabilities, seduced by its amenities and impressed by its price.
