Default 2020 Cadillac CT5

Replacing both the CTS and XTS (article also says ATS, but I'd wager that's for a smaller third sedan to do):

Looks like it could be a Lexus GS aor an Acura RL. And given how both of those cars have been such incredible sales successes....

The prob w/ the Escala (from which the prod car looks derived) was that there was absolutely nothing unique about it, even though it was pleasant. You water that down for production, and you get... this.

Agreed. I mean, if the article hadn't said so, would ANYONE know what this car was?

I loved the absolutely gorgeous Escala and this looks to have that same wonderful stance. CALL IT ESCALA NOT CT5!!!

Agreed, re-introduce some proper names. Alfa Romeo would have had even fewer sales if the went for silly abbreviations and that sort of thing. Cadillac still evokes memories of a glamorous past even among Europeans and Asians who most of them didn't even have them back then. Make em both look AND sound sexy/premium.

Yeah, and this one does neither, unfortunately. Honestly, had some told me that this was Subaru's attempt to go upmarket, I would've totally believed them.

I beg to differ. The stance alone says this is going to be very special.
