Nice but a tad bit too much "junk in da trunk" for my liking.

That looks like ***. I cant believe how horrible it looks. I am amazed that they thought a 45K coupe/hatchback would be great looking. They need to look at the 3 series coupe.

Leave the boxy lines to sedans and SUVs. Coupes are supposed to be curvy and sleek. Haven't they learned anything from the XLR?

I really like the CTS Sedan, but this, not so much. It looks like a ZDX with 2 doors lopped off, and people hate the ZDX. Not liking it at all. I agree with 1SICK, there's just too much sheet metal going on and not enough glass. The belt-line is waaaaaay too high.

I agree with you as well. The XLR had the underpinnings of the Corvette which is a good vehicle...

Too bad Lexus doesn't have a fixed hard-top IS coupe to compete with the Cadillac CTS coupe...

I agree, especially when I see how successful the 3-series coupe is.

The rear half looks very awkward

good video from Cadillac's General Manager (I'm glad he's not some 74 year old guy)

It's pretty flanky for my tastes too, but it seems to follow the design idiom established by the SC and made even worse in the Solara 'vert. Of course, that low quartering angle makes it look its very worst.
