    I saw my first XT4 in the wild today. I'd looked at several youtube reviews of it the day before, so I almost missed it. It's attractive, but with all the different and often outlandish vehicle designs out now, it doesn't stand out much.
    That can actually be good thing. Also, attractive non edgy/ non polarizing styling seems to have a longer shelf life. The fact that the XT4 has an attractive but understated appearance amongst the overwrought styling of the competition is how ultimately it will stand out.

    Every time I see the XT4, I see a right sized vehicle with a great stance, that shades the Lexus NX and even the Volvo XC40. The Volvo is attractive but has a trendy/funky down market look to my eyes.

    Even Mercedes is starting to tone down their styling. I saw a black A-Class sedan (not a crossover of course) last week, and it is much better than the cockroach CLA. I was surprised by how nice it looked. It also appeared to be CLA sized, so how it fits into the Mercedes hierarchy is a mystery.

    If CT5 is going to surface in China first then it’ll need to be soon. NY Show press days are only about 30 days away, so if Cadillac is going to reveal something, then we should get some kind of confirmation shortly.

    It was always rumored to be CT5 for a NY reveal, but CT4 prototypes look to be be just as far along in the development phase as CT5, so if it it turns out to be CT4, I won’t be shocked. The fact that CTS is still in production, and ATS sedan isn’t, would make it more logical to introduce CT4 first.

    And China now only has the ATS-L, not the CTS, which is wider, not just longer, than the normal ATS.

    We haven’t seen new spy shots for the CT5 for a while, so hopefully the next batch will show what is actually going on in the C Pillar area. We’re only about 30 days away from a possible reveal, so it could be that what we’ve seen so far is it for the spy shots. Maybe soon, Cadillac will release the ubiquitous shadowy front clip/profile tease?

    I never understood why Cadillac insists on all the extra lines, angles, and curves on their door panels.
    It's an irritating confusion.
    I wish they had clean lines.

    Yeah, it is so clean and uncluttered on the Mercedes.

    I say so! That Benz door panel as the rest of the interior is tacky and I wish someone would call them out on it. Get into almost any Benz these days and U come out feeling dirty and greasy.. like I just spent the nite at a Czech whorehouse where they accept Pesos as a top currency Riiight.. Exactly...

    You forgot to mark the silly circles in the Mercedes.

    The Mercedes door panel is pretty tacky but that's the style right now. It won't age well but that doesn't matter.

    Well, I keep on hearing in Europe, Americans have bad taste. They love those new Mercedes interiors so everything looks in order.

    BTW.
    My friend bought those tacky speaker covers on ebay and I had a chance to compare them to original Mercedes ones and don't see a difference. I wouldn't be surprised if they were made for Mercedes in the same Chinese-factory.

    The blind button is probably for the cooled seat option. Both my Deville and DTS have a separate button for back heat only, which is all I usually want.
