    I think they brought out the brain trust from the Catera and Cimarron to work on the current generation of cars.

I've had a lot of cars but I can't remember anyone approaching me to tell me how much they liked my car. Those people might have been potential Cadillac customers. I hope for the employees of Cadillac that for every customer like me who is disappointed with the style and sniffing around elsewhere, there are 2 people who are looking at the new style and saying how much they love it.
    I am right there with you. I have never owned a car that has resulted in the amount of unsolicited comments I have gotten on my coupe. Whether it be a thumbs up while driving down the road, or people approaching me while filling up at the gas station.

    needs to feel more like "audacity in motion"
    I agree. I think they mailed it in when it came to the rear and stuck to the XTS design cues.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    I like the looks of my 06 better than this. I'm glad Katie is recording the feedback, but it's probably too late. Agreeing with everyone, the front looks great, the back looks....old and boring...I've loved the CTS for its agressive lines and brilliant composure, but it seems like anyone below the age of 100 feels the same about this car.

    The comments on the pics of this put up on D3's facebook page are all the same, everyone hates it. Just hoping these are terrible pics, or I will be going somewhere besides Cadillac for my next car after college graduation.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    This is not sitting to good with me right now. I really want to stay positive and hope that this is just a bad picture, bad angle or maybe even not a good color on the cts. I really don't know. I definitely did not get the same feeling the first time I saw the 08 CTS. I guess I was expecting something with a little more thought put into it. It seems like they just mixed an ats and xts together type of deal. Not very creative and it doesn't seem like much thought was involved at all actually. Besides a few inches in length either way, there doesn't seem like there will even be much of a difference between the ats/cts/xts. I guess I got my hopes up after seeing the pictures of the next generation corvette, I thought we might have been in for something bold and edgy like that. Hopefully the next set of pictures will be more impressive. Trying to stay positive here.

    I am going to reserve judgment until I see better pictures ... but if this is actually it and the impression doesn't change, A5 here I come!

    That's exactly the car I'm thinking about.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    I am currently driving the A4 as a loaner for my A6. It is a stripper and it is a pos. Non-quattro. On the other hand, there was a nice older RS in the showroom in Imola Yellow with a mt. Nice car.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    This is beyond devastating. I leased a 2011 CTS Sedan brand new at the age of 20 because I fell in love with the overall design of the sedan. Looking at these spy shots, I can tell you that they have gone a step back in terms of exterior design. The Design is WAY too soft now, in comparison to the current CTS. All the young buyers that the CTS ( both generation 1 and 2) have brought to the Cadillac brand will now have to go elsewhere for their next car purchase. Cadillac has made a huge mistake with softening the exterior design, instead of evolving it. I think they could of done something truly remarkable. I am sure the interior has improved though, as well as the quality of the materials used. I am going to hold off my final judgement until I see higher resolution pictures. If it does look anything like the spy shots above, I will be looking elsewhere for my next car purchase. Sad because I was looking to buy a 2014 Cadillac CTS when my current lease ended on my CTS.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    I have read all of the posts and it seems we all have very similar if not the same opinion – we do not like the new design. Most of us stated that Cadillac went backwards, will lose customers and so on. I thought a bit more about it and I think Cadillac made a right decision. Why? First of all we are car enthusiasts; we do care about cars look, performance, handling and many other things.
    Unfortunately we are minority, there is only a few of us and Cadillac doesn’t care about us. Even if they lose us that only a few unsold cars.
    What they do care about is China – and Chinese do not like edgy design of current CTS and “general public” that does not care either. They designed car for masses…..they want to sell cars in large numbers….so spreadsheet has taken over…..sad but true.
    But maybe not all is lost yet. As others said there are other car manufacturers for auto enthusiasts…..we have choices and that’s a good thing![COLOR="Silver"]

    ATS-V with 3.6 twin scroll and MT. The new V series. I still want a wagon. Actually, a CTS wagon may be just the ticket as it will cut off that ugly rear end.

    wagons are so low volume that i doubt we will see them again ... add to that the exclusively low volume of the V-series and there's about a 0% chance of a 3rd Gen CTS-Vagon

    That's too bad, as it would give them something to put directly against the E-class Estate (which, by the way, I think looks great -- by far my favorite variant of E-class). Let's hope Caddy has one HELL of a coupe/gran coupe/4-door coupe thing up its sleeves for those of us who want some style with our Cadillac.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    Sorry but I think I may be keeping mine a little longer. The coupe is still the best looking car for the price out there IMHO. I kind of thought GM would have trouble topping the current model and from posts above I'm not alone.

    I wonder how many wagons MB sells. I don't see them discontinuing their model. Or Audi. Heck, even Acura came out with a wagon. This is what you have to do to have a complete line of vehicles and keep customers happy with the Badge.
