The interior on this generation CTS has been pretty good since it was launched. The sedan gets a lot of praise for its interior.





I hope they have some nice color combos though. I really liked the shots they were showing from the concept earlier on.

I saw this car (or at least the coupe CTS) at the San Diego Auto Show and it looked too stubby for me. I didn't get to see the interior. Can't really complain about the engine.

Performance and engine are top notch but looks like a truck to me.

Welcome to the future, space man. That's what this thing makes me think of. I don't care how good the performance/dollar ratio is, or what numbers it makes, or how it rides, or really much about anything with that car. This thing is FUGLY. Cadillac is for cruising, relaxing, or for someone with blue blockers. Caddy hasn't made a car I have liked since the ones with the fins out back...

Looks at the 'Ring numbers and I disagree.
On another note, i can't believe that i slightly remember the Blue Blockers rap.

Have been hearing looks much better in the flesh than in pics.

Might want to actually look at the interior of this car. Much better than the BMW counterpart in the eyes of most. Fit & finish is incredble. Thanks for supplying pics, Jeremy.

man, caddy was critisized for decads for not making something that was like teh European luxury cars that were more driver oriented. So they do, and people bitch that it's not Caddilac enough? Wow.

People complain when a car is too retro, then bitch and moan that a new car looks futuristic? Wow.

People complain when new cars copy other newish cars. Then when one goes out on their own with a unique style, people bitch that it's not conservative enough. Wow.

The CTS-V is a dynamically excellent, outstanding performing driver's car, with great quality, at a decent price for its performance level, with a good looking, non-derivative style of it's own. We could use MORE cars like that in the marketplace.

The interior looks like the best GM interior ever, which is still saying something - sort of. The exterior already looks dated though and I'm not surprised that the exterior shots are all distorted.

Different headlights (darker/less chrome) would've been appreciated, but I can't really comment much more.

It looks like the concept, which is good, not great.
