Sadly, the CT4 will be an epic fail for the following reasons;
It's really a 2 passenger car.....
It's overpriced. Pricing it above the competition from MB/BMW/ Audi, and, believe it or not
KIA, will let it sitting in dealer showrooms.
You know as well as I do when the little twinks, as well as the millennials get a dime in their pocket they head over to the Bimmer, Sabaru, Kia, Toyota, and Dodge, yes Dodge showroom. A young friend of mine bought a 2020 Dodge Charger (a real 4 passenger car) Super Bee, with a 480hp. hemi, big wheels, and a WOW! factor color. It also came with a $6000 discount..
When is the last time you saw an 18-38 year old in a Cadillac showroom actually shoping for a new car............LOL
Another instance of GM brass not knowing what in the hell they're doing IMO. It should be highlighted in every review to make public the absentminded decisions going on at the RenCen.
'19 Buick Enclave
'07 Dodge Magnum SRT-8
'19 Mazda 6
https://www.cars.com/articles/2020-c...-sized-422702/ - this is the first review that implies one must be a "skinny Minnie" to get in and out, as well as suggest the CT4 should have been a coupe, have coach-style rear doors or other packaging solutions.

Cadillac arguably had the packaging right with the original Sigma CTS and it's extra 3" of rear legroom,
the Chinese ATS-L had the good sense to use the tried and proven formula for luxury buyers.
There was an opportunity years ago for Cadillac to correct the problem by just using the longer ATS
in North America but then that would leave the CTS in a odd position of being only slightly bigger.
IMO, Cadillac got it's sizings wrong to create a second car that it's buyers never asked for.
