Those angles look nice. But I need to see those nice angles in relationship to the rest of the car.

Great to see how Cadillac is evolving their design language.

To me its still very unique and looks sporty and luxurious at the same time.

Cadillac just needs a true Flagship sedan and it will have once again a Tier 1 Luxury lineup top to bottom.

Love the front, the rest is rather bland and familiar, gives me an E-class feeling.

I like it! I'd have seriously considered that. Glad to see the CUE cluster, their standard cluster is awful.

I do see the E class in the doors, I kind of wish the Cadillac emblem was in the center of the grille.

Definitely Elegant. And great to hear the Twin Turbo V6 with 420 HP will be in this. Wonder what the CTS-V will look like...

I agree, I like the front as well. Overall, the car doesn't look that bad.

It's interesting, but still looks like it's for people over 60. I kind of like it, but I'm still too young to be seen in that. LOL

Amen KevinGS! I think I'll wait for a few more decades before/if I get a Cadillac. I really don't get this styling. Maybe I'm just a lite dense, but why in the worked would anyone get this instead of an IS (or really any Lexus)

This is a GS competitor. And I can think of a few reasons why.

We'll see how this thing does in road tests.

i doubt you're a target or fan of an e-class either.

i think this is another huge step forward for cadillac.
