2014 Cadillac CTS will be more sophisticated and more premium

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 17, 2012

The third-generation CTS sedan is Cadillac’s next big project since the brand’s XTS and ATS sedans have already hit the market. General Motors design chief Ed Welburn said that the appearance of Cadillac’s top-selling sedan will be “more sophisticated” and “more premium.” The Cadillac CTS has reaped several achievements since it first came out in 2002.

It led the way for a new era of design for the Cadillac. In fact, its angular, chiseled look persists until today. Interestingly, the CTS is very different from its German and Japanese rivals in the sport luxury sedan segment in terms of appeal. Nevertheless, the CTS required an update since the second-generation Cadillac CTS starting to show its age while the first-generation model is clearly not fresh anymore.

Another issue is that the ATS and XTS sedans now look better than the CTS. When interviewed by Automotive News, Welburn said the new car, which will arrive in late 2013, will appear more mature, a look similar to the 1987 model. To distinguish itself from the ATS sedan, the Cadillac CTS will be bigger by half a size. It will then be able to go up against the Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series.

Welburn said that it will have a more sophisticated body surfacing and won’t anymore have the sharp angles that define Cadillac’s Art & Science design philosophy. The new Cadillac CTS has been spied while running laps at the Nürburgring. It’s obviously bigger but no design details were seen because it was disguised.
