    I thought the same thing - Bentley or Chrysler 300.
    If that's what the 3rd Gen CTS will look like I'll be buying something else.

    The car is basically taking cues from the ATS and Ciel...

    LOL! Yes, absolutely - the wanna-be Bentley!
    Even if I had gazillions I'd have no interest at all in driving a Bentley... or a Rolls.
    IMO the artwork doesn't depict the proper look of a medium-sized sport sedan. The vehicle looks too long and heavy. The rear-end looks especially bad - similar to the nonsense you'd see on a Lincoln.

    I agree the front lights look inspired by the Ciel concept, which I'm not really a fan of

    I do not believe the proportions are right. It looks like a much biger car....and to be honest I do not like it...as others said it is trying to mimic Bently....

    In my opinion the new CTS will more closely resemble the current model.....with some cues from the new ATS...

    Looks terrible!! If that's the new look GM is just doing their usual two steps back approach.
    That thing better fly if they want good sales numbers.

    Looks like a stretched and softened version of the current CTS, with Ciel headlights. I'm not sure I'm a fan. The current CTS design is the best use of Art and Science I've seen, and I'm happy to have it in my garage. Hopefully the actual new design will be just as good.
