    Cadillac CTS

    Width....................................70.6 in.
    Height....................................56.7 in.
    Wheel Base...........................113.4 in.

    Front Headroom......................38.9 in.

    The CTS, like the G35 and TL are big for their class. The 3/IS 300/C/A4 are all under 180 inches in length. Since those cars are world cars, small size is important in Europe. The G35/TL (not sure of the CTS) are sold in America (the G35 in Japan as the Skyline).

    If you speak less and listen more, you'll learn that the general consensus on this forum is that Lexus builds excellent automobiles, wrapped in sheetmetal that makes you wonder if the designers read in braille. I'll make an exception for the Land Cruiser/LX470, which looks like a box with rounded edges -- typical SUV styling.

    Lexus exterior styling hasn't been the greatest but I think the new lineup is looking very good. It's an improvement over the previous theme...

    My car looks great and considering reliability, features, resale, is easily one of the best buys in this country. though i dont like the back of the GS

    LS430 and LX470 are the only ones I like currently, the rest make me

    I also like the older RX better than the new one, the new one looks very station-wagonish.
