Take the Eldorado.. It's the same size as the Seville inside.. Right? The Seville is the same size inside as the DeVille. Right? So the inside of a DeVille is the same size as an Eldorado?! Which is the same size as a Nissan Maxima? Doesn't anybody want big cars anymore? This must be the reason for the popularity of SUVs...

Here you can compare dimensions for any car from the past four years.

They're not EXACTLY the same inside. They try to make the front seat dimensions close, but if you look closer you'll see a difference. Total passenger volume is larger in the DeVille. There's a huge difference in back seat legroom.

The seats in the DeVille are much larger, too. I've tried both. The DeVille feels like it was designed with a fat person in mind.

But yeah, the same people who used to buy large cars are now buying SUVs. I can't stand SUVs. You can't see over or around them. I wonder how many accidents they cause to people whose vision is obstructed.

There ARE only minor differences nowadays. The Deville and Seville are generally within 1" of each other in virtually all interior dimensions. Please note I said "generally" and "virtually". I know the back seats are slightly more than 1" different in shoulder and leg room (but interestingly NOT hip room). The Eldo is no longer in the picture but when it was, it WAS significantly smaller in the rear seat area and trunk. These would traditionally be the two areas that SHOULD be bigger on a sedan when compared to a coupe anyway. For years, it was very evident(at least to me) that Cadillac was looking to eliminate one of it's cars, either the Seville, or the Deville since they were slowly moving the individual vehicle dimensions toward each other instead of maintaining their individuality. Otherwise what would be the sense? Only time will tell :rolleyes:

Can anybody verify that the 95 STS interior is bigger than the 95 ETC interior? I'd really love to know for sure...
