Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007 Discussion, 03-07 v. 08 +++ in Cadillac CTS Coupe, Sport Sedan and Sport Wagon Forums; does anyone agree with me in saying the 1st gen CTS look better(exterior) than the 2nd gen.?...
I disagree, but not by much. The a$$ end of the 08 awesome looking IMO. The front looks great but I think it's a too different from ours. And something about looking at the 08 from the side doesn't look as good as ours either. Looks short or something
i think the 03-07 CTS' look alot better in multiple ways, but the one thing that truly sticks out to me that i dont like about the 08, is the back. i do not like how the trunk is not lined up with the brake light across the trunk and the taillights. it looks a bit weird to me...
I personally love the 08's. I want one pretty bad...they're just out of price range right now, plus what we've been talking about before about what someone will give us for our cars...nothing really. They wanted to give me 13k for mine. I have 46k miles on it. Base package...
But anyway, the 08's are hot to me...I like the grilles on them that come stock...and I like the interior better. It seems with our cars....that the dash is poked out too much. So if you ever have to move the seats up...you're right in the dash. It seems they've done a little bit better with the 08's....but I also like the instrument panel layout.
I just like the overall look of the 08 better. Mine's not modded out like your alls tho. So maybe that's why you guys love yours more..lol
Overall the 08 is a better car and its much more fun to drive. I had a stock 08 and the thing just flew from a dead stop, something our cars dont do, even with every option.
However, I agree with you on some aspects of the exterior. The first generation was uniquley enginered to look like nothing else on the market. The sleek, sexy lines really complimented the car. When you see the 08 from certain angles you just go "blah".
I think once the 08 CTS has a grille on it, I don't think you can can even compare the cars, it's just a whole different level.
The new CTS looks simply just as much more of a high end car.
I completely agree with this. While our cars were somewhat revolutionary because there was nothing else out that looked like them. In terms of quality, the 08 is now on par with its comp (bmw, not quite mercedes but maybe, volvo, audi, etc.). and as far as the exterior styling I see the 08 as an extension of this design and there is still nothing that looks quite like it.
