    Another new picture of the new CTS, this time is was a V-Sport Model. You guys can clearly see from this picture how the sharp lines and angles in the rear have been toned down dramatically.


    Enjoy guys, I will keep them coming.

    Nice review and makes me excited about the future, but I stand by what I (and many others) have said. Cadillac nailed it with the front of the car, and mailed it in with the back. Seems like the reviewers feel similarly.

    " That large rear overhang still looks a bit lengthy from some angles, and the rear view isn't nearly as powerful as the front, but have a glance of the 2014 CTS next to the 2013 model and, well, the improvement is massive."

    just fyi.... the platform that the XTS is on (Epsilon II, shared with other GM vehicles) was first brought to market by the 2010 Saab 9-5

    so when you say that the XTS is based on a Chevy platform, that's not really correct ... yes they're both on the same platform but a Saab was the first to market on that new platform

    and to call it a Saab platform or a Chevy platform or a Buick platform or a Cadillac platform is just not the way to go about describing how these cars are related

    Actually, The Opel Insignia/ Buick Regal were the first to use the platform, followed by The Buick LaCrosse and Saab 9-5. The architecture was developed by Opel.

    My whole point really was that the Cadillac rides on a FWD platform and I used Chevy because The Cadillac XTS and Chevy Impala were the latest cars to use the Epsilon II platform.

    I think if you look at both vehicles, you could see closer resemblance between the two; when compared to the other vehicles that use the platform.

    The front of the car is stunning. The rear is kinda.... Meh.

    That is a very positive review. Nice to see. Who would have thought several years ago that Cadillac would have this kind of resurgence.
