Two versions of the Seville were offered: SLS (Seville Luxury Sedan) and the STS (Seville Touring Sedan). The STS has more power and better handling than the SLS. From the front, you can tell them apart quite simply: The medallion on the STS is mounted in the middle of the grille. On the SLS, the medallion is a stand-up emblem.
Gone from the lineup was the previously available Seville sedan powered by the 4.9-liter V-8 linked to the 4T60-E transmission. As one of the most respected sports sedans in the world, the Seville STS underscores the fact that Cadillac is indeed creating a higher standard. The STS is responsive beyond question with a Northstar System that includes a 295-hp V8 linked to the 4T80-E electronically controlled four-speed automatic transmission with viscous converter clutch. Agile beyond expectation with a sophisticated real-time Road-Sensing Suspension, STS stands alone through a unique unification of high performance and uncommonly restrained elegance.
The heart of STS is the Northstar System with its 32-valve V8 with a four-speed automatic transmission, electronically synchronized with the engine. The real-time Road-Sensing Suspension is designed to continuously adjust for optimum control and handling. It also has speed sensitive steering, short/long arm rear suspenslon anti-lock brakes and Bosch ASRIIU traction control.
The rewards of driving an STS should be commensurate with those of owning one. To that end, natural leathers are used to cover the shift handle and new four-spoke steering wheel rim. Genuine Zebrano wood trim inlaid along the dash, console and doors. Master craftsmen match the trim so meticulously that all of the wood used in each car comes from the same tree. It is then finished, polished and fitted by hand. On seating areas, perofrated Nuance leather lends a richly supple yet comfortably breathable surface. Both the driver and front passenger seats feature an anatomical design, achieved with the aid of infrared imaging. This technology helped to identify and eliminate fatiguing pressure points and extend driving comfort. Front Suspension Seating provides cushioned support yet allows the individual to move with the automobile’s ride motions rather than against them. It’s like a suspension system for the seats themselves. A four-way power lumbar adjustment is also built in.
For 1994, the Seville Luxury Sedan (SLS) creates a higher standard of its own with a specially tailored Northstar System, featuring a 270-horsepower 32-valve V8. Its real-time Road-Sensing Suspension is specially tuned for precise handling and an outstanding ride.
