    CTS no longer the entry level Caddy?

    Hey check out this Dutch article on the Cadillac BTS (with photos). Nice car, I like it alot, especially the interior.

    For those who want to see more pics and can't decipher Dutch, on the left is Foto-Show, click on the BLS name and more, larger photos come up.

    Enjoy

    They also have a nice picture of a worked CTS in the Foto-Show area as well.

    Thankfully, it's Europe only.

    In a weird way I like it and I actually prefer that center stack to the center stack on the CTS.

    Don't like it??

    I have a suspicion that the design cues we see on that car are going to show up on the next CTS

    If you want to read the article.

    use your mouse to highlight the text, copy, then go to:
    http://babelfish.altavista.com

    copy the text and select: german to english
    and it will translate it for you.

    Actually, it's written in german. (.de is Germany's country extension. The Dutch are from the Netherlands, which is .nl)

    The significance? . . . . Germany is home to the CTS's main competition . . . Namely the C-class Mercedes and the BMW 3 and 5 series.

    Interestingly, it's based on the FWD Saab chassis, and is for the European market only. It's placed between the CTS and the Saab 9-3 to compete with the Audi A4 among others. The dash and center console is interesting.

    I wish the CTS interior was more like this one.

    Have you guys looked at the DTS in that page?

    The interior looks OK but the exterior design is ugly IMO.

    That won't stand to the LS430.

    Re: CTS no longer the entry level Caddy?

    Honestly, I like the DTS for what it is...a big, American luxury sedan. And that is not meant to be a put down...For the price, I think no one does big sedans with v8 power like Caddy does...not Benz, nor BMW, nor Lexus...all priced much higher then the Caddy. If you look at the performance on a veh by veh basis, I would guess that the Caddy may not have all the bells and whistles of the Europeans, but I bet it drives as well as those cars.

    But I do not think the LS430 customer would even consider a DTS until the complete make over comes in 2007.

    Me on the other hand, would consider a DTS before I ever bought an LS430.

    Actually this German has been making aftermarket kits for the CTS for over a year. I really don't like his airdam a damn.
