Some would say that it looks like a blown up Cadillac CTS, others complain about its' ubiquitous shape and lack of uniqueness of style. Other emote on its' beauty attractiveness and beauty. Different strokes for different folks!

To me it looks, with its' stubby hood and general silhouette, like a Chrysler cab forward design of the nineties. So much for "daring," just another meaningless advertising implying wishful thinking!

It must be the angle of the pic, but it looks like a station wagon with it's back end deflating. I need to see it from other angles to form a more informed judgement.

Other than both of those (cars) looking like cars, IMO, they look (pretty much) totally different.

^^Agree. The CT6 looks pretty sharp to me. Looking forward to a peak inside.

Unfortunately a big wing on the back would look much more at home on it than it should!

Noooo...!

Actually it looks like a cross between a Ciel and a Sixteen, and a touch of Xts. ( hint of a storm chaser vehicle lol) But if it has a TTV8 there will be no denying it on the road. Not totally satisfied but pleased. I still am getting used to Lexus like ( hatchback thing) Waiting for sticker shock.

For what it is worth, I think the design is stunning. Very beautiful.

It is not a breakthrough in automotive styling that it should be.
I also fear that some of the elements that make it a stunning design, like the dramatically sloped roof are at odds with the comfort and ease of entry and egress that a large luxury sedan should have. That will have to wait to be seen once they are released and can be sat in.
As with the other recent Cadillac designs they have rounded the front end so much that it gives it a short appearance.
If the leading edges of the fenders were brought more in line with the front of the car, it would not look so bobbed in the front. That and a slightly more pronounced greenhouse would have given the same car a more commanding look that is different from the pack.

As it is, I can see a young guy falling in love with the look, and that would be great. That was how I got into the brand, by coveting my employers car while in high school. It does closely resemble the show cars in style, but then what makes a great show car and a livable daily driver are not always the same.

Is it confirmed that the car in he picture is actually a CT6? To me, it seems something that is created in a software. This is a spy photo of what believed to be CT6. These two don't share the same shape!
