    But cars often look better to me in person than in pics.
    With the right lighting white can show off a car’s lines, but in these photos certain areas look over exposed. Only a week and we’ll see CT5 in all of it’s glory. Yes, it’s vaguely ‘Nissan Maxima’ or Infiniti, but both of those brands tend to go OTT on details like headlights, grilles and really quirky C pillar treatments. The CT5 C pillar is much more to my liking than on various Infiniti models.

    The CT5 belt line is really nice. Much nicer than on the C or E Class Mercedes. Fortunately Mercedes is toning down that detail on some upcoming models, although the ‘leaping banana’ is not completely banished.

    The front end clip of the CT5 is very impressive. I think the CT5-V Series is going to look positively menacing.

    I think these photos are of early pilot production, as the front end clip where it meets the headlight and the hood doesn’t line up properly, creating a little kink in that area.

    I will say this, GM is an absolute idiot for showing that c-pillar now that we saw that whole front end. IDIOTS. You choose that to tease?!?!

    Possibly it was to get people used to it as they suspected it would be somewhat controversial? With these new spy shots I think it is not as bad as many feared, especially how they merged the rear edge of the door with the C pillar with an extremely smooth transition.

    If the rear door glass ended with another molding, it wouldn’t have flowed so well. I’d prefer a rear C Pillar window, but to be honest this isn’t that bad.

    As nice as the front is, I’m really liking the rear 3/4 view.

    This is starting to grow on me. I really am digging the shapes, I think a 2 door coupe would be very nice.

    Re: Cadillac Reveals 2020 CT5

    I've expressed my one gripe with this photo(s), and I'm really thinking its the fact that this is not even a random cleaned up car, but a tester that has zero prep.. not even a quick spray off in the driveway and a lil Black Magic Tire Dressing on the rubber. AND.. that all blacked out grill with no metal surround. All in all.. I think the shapes are very nice.. and may be a better sales success than the Gen3 despite CUVs taking over right now. Fingers crossed. Can't wait til NYIAS and different colors and clean-up

    Like I stated in the other thread a bit ago, this one with a good contrasting color to the chrome trim and angles of photography do wonders for this car. It may end up catching us all by surprise and really be a looker when we can actually walk around one and take it all in.
