    Hard to tell about the front styling...may be OK. The rear styling doesn't do anything for me. I like the "edgier" styling of the current CTS.

    I agree with popacork...the current gen CTS styling with its edgier styling is awesome.

    Not impressed. The Mercedes E350 for 2014 (due this spring) looks like it may be in my future.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    Agree with comments already made . . . the front is nice, but the rear looks "dull" and the signature vertical tail lamps are too short and stubby, and my biggest disappointment is the area where the C-Pillar meets the body--very straight and dull--whereas the current generation CTS's have great detailing there that is simply beautiful! Let's hope this is simply an unflattering view of the rear quarter!

    very quick and dirty but raising the tailights to the height of the ugly ATS/XTS "step" makes the rear a little better in my opinion.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    I knew when I saw the rounded stylig of the ATS and the XTS that the new CTS's styling would follow. Why Cadillac would go more mainstream on styling when the unique styling of the CTS was a home run is beyond me. The only car that interests me is the ELR which retains some of the angular shape I like but according to the Motor Trend article "projected 0-60 acceleration times to around 8 seconds (from about 9 in our experience)" puts that out of the running. If my next car is going to be a Cadillac it would be the ATS only because it's performance and handling is getting excellent reviews and I like the 2 tone interiors (caramel and red). The thing is that there is a Chevy/Cadillac dealership on the next block from me and they sometimes park the ATS next to a Malibu and in my opinion there's not enough difference in shape. I'm hoping for a ATS coupe. I'm already looking at other brands.

    Terribly disappointing.

    The styling of the '08 was what got me into the car. Even my kids thought is was outstanding. They've taken all of the sharpness out and made it derivative. Sad.

    Let's see an ATS V coupe.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    One thing just came to mind. A lot of us owners have stated how much we love the angular shape but I just realized that since I've had my coupe quite a few people in parking lots and such have walked up to me and told me how they loved my car. 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.

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    It looks like a bigger ATS,
    I really hate this trend GM is doing by making all of their cars look the same with the only difference being size
    Reminds me of Audi
    Every model should have distinct and unique looks to set its self way a part from other models IMO

    Re: 2014 Cadillac CTS: This Is It

    If this is it I'm not loving it.
    Can't yet comment on the front, but the rear is very disappointing. My first impression is I think they've blown it.
    So this is what they meant by "less edgy, more sophisticated" styling?!!
    It wont be long before we see official photos of the new car. I'll reserve my final judgement till then.

    Well, it obviously is. Now, if this car is going to be priced closely to the BMW 5-series, Cadillac is going to have a problem because I'm having my doubts that many people will be willing to pay >$70K for this design.

    The front is great - the rear isn't and IMO, a complete mismatch to the front.

    Looks like an Old Man's car from the rear
