Discontinued in 2011, the STS was a driver’s luxury sedan with ample room for five and the comfort of Nuance leather seating surfaces. Engineered to accelerate, corner and respond without compromise, STS also offered a spirited driving experience. At the heart of STS performance was an advanced 302 HP direct injection V6 engine and Hydra-Matic 6-speed automatic transmission with Driver Shift Control, which allowed manual shifting without the use of a clutch pedal. Also adding to the driving experience was all-speed traction control, StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System, speed-sensitive steering and available All-Wheel Drive. Taking performance a step further was the available Performance Handling Package, which included performance tires and Brembo® race-inspired brakes. For buyers preferring more luxury versus performance, STS was available with the Luxury and Premium Packages. A touch-screen navigation system and heated and cooled front seats were also available.
