Rendered Speculation: Cadillac CTS Coupe and Wagon

 Rendered Speculation: Cadillac CTS Coupe and Wagon
Cadillac CTS Coupe / Copyright by Lehmann Photo-Syndication

Reported almost one year ago by Automotive news (subs. req.) and gaining traction once again, Cadillac is expanding the CTS range with coupe and wagon variants set to debut in 2009 as 2010 models. Disappointing CTS and BLS sedan sales in Europe have given GM incentive to consider additional variants in an effort to emulate BMW's 3-Series and Mercedes C-Class ranges. Additionally, wagons are more appealing to Europeans and could help jump start the brand.

Spy sources are whispering that a CTS wagon concept could debut at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this coming January and then making a European debut in Geneva. Public reaction in Geneva as well as demand of the Cadillac BLS wagon which is just beginning sales now will be critical in GM making a decision in giving the green light to production.

Obviously, no prototypes have been spotted yet, however, these photos which have been digitally edited show how they might look like.

A prototype has been sighted undergoing testing somewhere in the U.S over a year ago. A coupe would be vital in the UK market as British buyers prefer small executive coupes more than small executive wagons

I think we're starting to see the pendulum swing when it comes US vs the World in the car-realm. Finally US automakers are listening. They took it as far as they could with the incestuous FWD crap and it almost cost them their lives. In the next 5-10 years, it's make or break. Like I've been saying especially with GM, if they (the US automakers) are going to do this.. it needs to be balls to the wall all out assault. Upgraded quality, dynamic designs, significant performance power AND fuel wise. Sometimes, it takes money to make money. Short sightedness and instant gratification/bottom line results will kill your company. CTS Coupe and Estate are steps in the right directions.

GM is making a pretty good go at it. The wagon is beautiful. And for those who talk of German quality, why is that after a couple years the interiors fall apart. I have test driven 2 and 3 year old Mercs and BMWs, and holy hell are they chinsy. Plastic creaking and materials cracked and worn. They feel cheap. As far as reliability, I have to say I would trust the Caddy over any of the big three Germans concerning electronics and power train...now Lexus, Infiniti...not so much the same story. No one can match that level of overall quality.

Yeah i have 2003 Saab 9-5 Aero. My best friend owns a CTS-V. Id take my Saab over it any day, this car does absolutelly nothing for me. The only thing i like about the CTS is the steering wheel and thats because its the same as the 1 in my saab, thats about it.

I try not to judge any commenters but...Radmeister, you have no idea what you are talking about. There are SO many incorrect conclusions in your last two posts. Do you even own a car? Are you old enough to drive? Can you see over the wheel when you sit in the drivers seat?...

For the past 2 years Motor Trend has named a Japanese name plate as car of the year. This year they have turned their heads to the Cadillac CTS giving it the same dubious honors. Japan-based automakers had five cars in the field, with seven U.S. models, four from Germany and two from Sweden...... Motor Trend said the CTS was chosen from among one of the toughest fields in the award's history..... MacKenzie said,"There's really not a lot of difference at all between BMW, Mercedes and Cadillac," during a interview Monday. The punch line is, think what ever you like, but you are wrong this year......... LOL

Wow, the wagon looks pretty good. The coupe not so much, it has weird proportions.

Oh and who would choose this POS over a G37 coupe?? i understand the Mercedes/BMW/Audi coupes r not in the same price range so that might be an incentive to adding much suffering to your life and buying a GM. The G37 is in the same price cat. better looks, better performance, better reliability, better gas mileage, better interior, better colour combinations for the exterior vs. interior. An all around better car. IMO Gm missed the mark again with this car.

Right.....the germans and japs to ask GM........Were you under the influence of drugs when you sat in this car?? And yeah omg its a revellation/miracle the CTS went through a significant interior change. AS if that was GMs doing, they just took the SAAB interiors from the 93 and 95 mixed em together and there you go CTS interior. So in conclusion, you like the CTS buy a SAAB.

I sat in the new CTS at a dealership, and I think the Germans and Japanese should be ringing up Cadillac to ask where they buy there materials from.....

Actually Sonics, the interior of the new generation CTS has gone through a major overhaul and is very significantly different from the previous generation. No more hard plastics. The interior's look and feel is actually great and comparable to MB and BMW.

Yeh, I like these models. They both have a good exteroir. Now you've cracked that, You can start on the interior and Stop making it out of bloody trash bin plastics. Ring up the Germans, Japaness or Yellow Pages. Other than that, Good Cars

I think this looks pretty cool, something about the side profile reminds me of a past generation honda accord coupe.

This would be hot, though probably not a replacement for the Eldorado (which was definetly more expensive during its time than this probably will be). The CTS has really shown Cadillac's potential and the coupe will be really nice.

They should chop the top on the coupe, give it more Evoq/XLR DNA.
