Upcoming Cadillac XTS to carry the same design line as the Sixteen Concept

Article by Christian A., on August 26, 2010

Rounding out the lineup for the Cadillac are the XTS and ATS models. VP of Design Ed Welburn showed off the models during the media preview hosted by General Motors in its design dome. The ATS, a two-door coupe, is smaller than the CTS and will take direct aim at the heart of the 3-Series. The model has a roof-line closer in shape to the CTS sedan rather than the extreme fastback profile of the CTS coupe.

The overall design is an evolution of the current CTS with headlights that stretch back across the top of the fender line. The platform underneath would be rear- and all-wheel drive, just like a 3-series.

New Cadillac general manager Brian Nesbitt said the next generation CTS is already under development and would be new from the ground up, paving the way for a shorter version for the ATS. On the other hand, the XTS is huge and carries a lot of the design first seen on the celebrated Sixteen concept.

It is speculated that since the V16 is out of the question, the hood would be much shorter than the concept car. The flanks have more curvature than the current DTS and a character line with an undercut lies just below the belt-line.
