Top or Bottom?

I prefer the top one. The bottom one looks too much like the CTS-V, as much as I like the V, I would be pretty disappointed if every Cadillac started looking like it.

bottom has more realistic lines....

I also prefer the top - the "large egg crate" grille reminiscent of the older Seville grilles. Everybody sticks an aftermarket screen grille in, so all the cars in a part of town then look alike again.

Neither rendition looks good with the cutesy dots (LED's? ) around the headlight assembly. Truly ricer.

The silver emphasizes the body line sculpting, so the top looks a bit more "chiseled".

Top one looks too much like a Camaro, bottom one too much like a CTS. :shifty

They both look good but neither has their own personality. I suppose that's inevitable though, as both the C and E class and 3 and 5 series are nearly indistinguishable from 10 feet to anyone but the most enthusiastic car people. If I had to pick I'd say bottom, since it stays more true to the Cadillac family of design.

Only difference I can see is the color and the grill. I like that lower screen grill. May have one some day.

If I HAD to choose one bottom rear top front but since i dont neither.

Bottom. I like the less "hatchback" look of the back on the bottom one, not really feeling the top grille either.

09-04-09, 10:55 PM
The bottoms looks WAY too much like the current CTS-V. So, I'd choose the top one.

top-killer grill

09-06-09, 04:31 PM
The bottom one. It looks "younger" and sportier. And less hatchback-y.

09-09-09, 11:41 PM
Bottom. ATS-V! :D

I like the bottom one better, but both cars look great.

I prefer the top one.

I also prefer the top rendition. Aside from the slight differences tht the colors bring out I don't see any difference from the front facia back. I much prefer the bolder grill of the top one, it also has the advantage of continuity where as the mesh grill really looks aftermarket, the car needs something more distinctive than the mesh grill seeing as the cars body sticks very closely to the current fads in auto design.

The top one as a 7 series sized car could be badass.

I like both. In fact, I hope we will see a V-version of the ATS as well.
I do not like the LED christmas tree light head lights ala Audi. Light pipes will suit better.

Bottom one without a doubt.

The ATS V should be one bad @ss ride! Twin turbo 425hp V6? DSG transmission.

Cadillacs got my money.

theres only small differences between the two. the bottom looks better from the windshield forward, the top looks better from the windshield back.

i like the front end of the top one but from the fender back on the second one. combine those two and you got a killer

Maybe you'll see an ATS coming to a spy photograph near you soon? So who knows, maybe you can see the design for yourself.

Hopefully, the ATS has a nice interior that is rich and comfee. I like to have upscale leather and colors too. They should copy Ferraria color schemes. The are top of the line in looks and finish.

I prefer the more chiselled shape of the top pic as it's closer to the current CTS' bolder shape. The '08 CTS looks so much better than the previous model and the STS simply because of it's flared shape. The bottom version does look more like the smoother STS shape and is just a little more boring. I do not like the grill on the top pic though and it does look too camaro-ish. Replace it with the bottom grill or something more contrasting like the current CTS's grill and I think you'd be good to go.

I'm liking that last pic posted of the rear/side view.

I like the older postings. This looks to conservative! It a reminder of the older image of Cadillac.

Top. Bottom looks like an current CTS-V nose with a Volvo a$$.

And that last pic is boring as all hell.
