Looks a lot more like the old CTS than I thought it would. Also looks a lot less sleek. That grille is just terrible. Sure, it's meant to be flashy, but it just doesn't look right, especially with those two extra lines running down the sides. Looks chunky and oversized, especially compared to the rest of the car.

The interior's design is quite fantastic, though, but materials are bound to disappoint, as with any GM product. Let's hope they don't this time. High res pictures already show some bad fit and finish, around the gauge cluster especially.

You can't really tell much about fit and finish from the pictures, and there are no high-res pictures out yet, so I'm not sure what you're looking at. The materials will be similar to the new SRX, which has gotten great reviews. Looks are subjective, but I'm betting (and GM is too) that people will prefer this look over the IS and C-class. (and perhaps the GS too, since the CTS is that big)

A bit too close to the current CTS, but looks great. That interior is really good, too. I'm sure the fit and finish will be top notch.

A little underwhelmed after seeing that fantastic teaser shot... Too bad it revealed the most interesting part of the car...

Overall, seems a solid (if predictable) step up from the current CTS...

Is that hand stiched leather on the upper part of dashboard?

The interior looks great and after seeing the new Saturn Outlook in person, I'd say that the quality of materials SHOULD be good or great in the more upscale CTS.

I love the styling but the only thing I'm not sure about is the side vent and the crease that starts behind it. I think maybe I miss that it boomerangs up the c-pillar instead of continuing to the back of the car. The first CTS had a few of the "speedlines" near the taillights and I kinda liked them.

Otherwise, this is a pretty sweet car.

It is the hand-stitched leather, I've read.

The car looks good...but it isn't perfect. The steering wheel is ugly, and the temp gauge in the gauge cluster is the old-fashioned kind with numbers, the gauges don't look as good as they could, and we don't know yet what navigation will look like.

...but if that's all I have for squabbles then this is a pretty good car!
