    Re: Spotted and Took Pictures of the 2014 Cadillac CTS in the Real World!

    Hmm... my experience has been if something doesn't look good in numerous photos taken from many angles, it will not improve when viewed in person. Genuine good looks are intrinsically photogenic. The styling of the 2008 2nd gen CTS was a huge hit with everyone when the car was revealed in January 2007. By comparison the reveal of the 2014 3rd gen CTS earlier this year didn't cause much of a stir at all, stylistically speaking. Probably because the vehicle lacks a properly evolved, consistent sport sedan styling theme from stem to stern. The front end styling appears dynamic/aggressive, however the vehicle's side profile is ho-hum and the rear treatment is an aberration. As the saying goes - beauty is only skin deep, but ugly is to the bone.

    Front looks pretty good, rear sucks. Looks too much like a 1st gen from the rear and side. 2nd gen looks best.

    What?! no drive around the block?
    I have to say -- this looks like a VERY expensive vehicle. Even from this video one can tell that the materials look very premium. Love it. Can't wait to go for a ride.

    Nice couple of videos, thanks. My only criticism (so far) about the new CTS is that dimensionally it is 5" longer but interior space(s) are essentially the same as the outgoing model. But definite kudos for losing 250 lbs in the new larger model. Final evaluation (mine) with be delayed until I can see one (for myself).

    Thanks for the pics Envoybu. Love the front of this car but not crazy for the back. I would prefer the back lights on the same level as the trunk, like previous generations. The rear reminds me of a Volvo. Hopefully it will look better when I see one in person.

    Re: Spotted and Took Pictures of the 2014 Cadillac CTS in the Real World!

    I own and enjoy a 2008 CTS AWD 304 sedan and its been flawless for the past 46k miles a great ownership experience since oct 2007. Still looks brand new.

    I went to the ny Autoshow and the new third gen CTS v sport in person is really very good looking.

    It's much np nicer in person. A real stunning design. I'm not rushing as I still enjoy my 2008 model...rest assured the new third generation is even nicer.

    60 grand to start for the start of the v sport! Not inexpensive to say the least
