    Not a professional review, but I didn't even realize these were being shipped to dealers. Can't wait to get mine!

    There are a few CT4 V's out there as well, nothing in my area to test out yet.

    Looks like it has poor visibility especially to the rear as opposed to a BMW 3 which has always had good visibility.
    The wheels look really cheap, not digging them.
    The interior is OK but once again doesn't look like it belongs in a luxury car.

    What in the entire eff is that? They couldn't hide the reverse camera above the licence plate like everyone else. Like I said, IMO, this car just doesnt look good. Good luck to those who buy it, hope you enjoy it but damn GM, do better than this.

    I don't think this was a dealer delivery. I think these are floaters that are making the rounds of dealerships for reviews and demonstrations. In fact, I would not be surprised if it was the same car as in this review:

    CT4 dealer inventory is shown at the cadillac configurator, but of course lots of dealers’ sales depts are closed. Around here anyway only the service depts are open.

    A few of the dealer sites show photos of their CT4s, including a handful of 2.7T Vs and 2.7T Prem Lux.

    Yes can’t wait to test drive one at some point!

    Good luck to us all...

    Next ride, pre-pandemic: Maybe a 2020 2.0T CT4, weekend car, keep the Sonic as DD
    Next ride, post-pandemic: Keep driving the Sonic!

    Nice! Two positive reviews, though are these people that work for the dealerships?

    I can't wait to get mine - the more I see it the more I like it! Even though I know it is a bad choice in my potholed area, I will be going for the bigger wheels. Same as the ATS, the 17's look a little small.

    I'm sure you are right about these being floaters. My dealer was supposed to have one two weeks ago but the event was canceled. I presume canceled due to the Coronavirus.

    Not sure about the other review, but the one you quoted is Joe Raiti of Raiti's Rides. He is a YouTube car reviewer who specializes in reviewing ALL trims of vehicles. Very honest reviews without the fanboy bias that some people show. I've been watching his reviews for awhile and they always look to be fair.

    Looks like a big upgrade in quality and interior space.

    Really like what has been done here and the price point is very attractive.

    Your complaining about where the reverse camera is on an entry level luxury compact??

    You do realize this trim will sell for the low 30's right?

    Yes! They did a nice job. I was a little concerned about the trunk area, but now that I see it in real videos I'm loving it. So far the only two things I'll miss over my ATS is the hidden storage area behind the touchscreen that can be code locked and the haptic feedback - I really liked that but totally understand why they are dropping it. Oh, and one other thing that I believe they already dropped is the timeshift - being able to rewind the radio. I love that and use it all the time. Otherwise a really good upgrade over the ATS!

    I'll be interested to sit in the back seat. I don't think the headroom in the ATS was the issue, more an issue of where to put your feet. The reviewer did look like he had his feet uncomfortable wedged into the footwell. I'm not expecting miracles, but hopefully some improvements!

    So, because it's me complaining its not valid. I think its a piss poor application.

    Audi A3


    MB A Class has it beneath the flip up TriStar

    Hell even the Hyundai Veloster hides it in the badge

    But Cadillac just drills out a hole in the trunk and sticks a camera in there...details matter in the lux segment entry level or not. If you like it cool, I just don't and I've said why, it isn't blind hatred.

    The world is full of people for whom the glass is half empty, half full and just half, neither empty or full. Most people land in the half full or empty categories to varying degrees. GMI has made me realize how truthful that simple analogy is and that the half full and half empty people will always struggle to comprehend each other. I tend to be "half" to "half full" and can struggle with half empty attitudes. But I try to be cognizant of that and the reality that rarely will a half empty ever change the opinion of a half full and vice versa; and try to just let it go (though sometimes I fail miserably on letting it go).

    But the differences make the world go round!
