What I want to know is why WE can't have a small Cadillac this nice?

I mean, personally i like the CTS, but its big and somewhat unrefined, like a 0.9 version.... i want a compact luxary car, something that could compete with a BMW 3-series, something like this BLS thing

And when he says it was designed for "European tastes" it kinda upsets me because that usually means the american version will be crappier. I mean, doesn't GM realize that Americans buy small european sedans?

The Europeans do the same in the U.S. MB doesn't sell the A-Class and BMW 1-series in the U.S. The CTS competes with 3-series and the C-Class, the STS with 5-series and the E-Class. And the BLS will compete with 1-series and A- and B-Class.

They are idiots. Why the HELL would they go through all the trouble of giving Caddy proper RWD platforms here, and in Europe, where sport is even more important, they make a FWD Caddy. That makes NO SENSE. They should not have even bothered.

Do they REALLY think people will buy a FWD CAddy over the RWD 3?
