I absolutely love the interior. The open air feel of the dash as it runs up into the windshield gives you the feel of a much larger car and thank god for not ALL black being show on the show circuit!!!!
Looks outstanding, this could be the car that gets me back into driving a car.

Wow! Nice interior, I am liking this CT5! Even the tablet slapped on the dash isn't nearly as bad as some other makes. Nice interior, takes the XT4 and adds an even more luxurious look, I can't wait to see the CT4.
And nice, super cruise will be available.
GM did a nice job, including the world ending kink.
Design and engineering did their job, now can marketing follow through?
2020 Cadillac CT5: Compact American luxe debuts in New York
Ironically the latest Cadillac sedan arrives in New York just as the brand waves goodbye to the Big Apple
April 16, 2019
Just because Cadillac is moving out of New York and back to Michigan doesn’t mean it can’t show off its wares in a farewell lap at the New York auto show. The team at Cadillac pulled the sheet off the next-generation of its compact sedan and christened it CT5. The new CT5 will replace the CTS and ATS and keep Cadillac in the sedan space for at least another generation.
Powering the CT5 will either be a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four or a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6. The 2.0-liter makes a decent 237 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. Not surprisingly the larger, twin-turbocharged engine makes more power and sends 335 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque to the rear. The smaller engine is standard, but you can nab the 3.0-liter engine in the Premium Luxury and Sport models. All CT5s have a 10-speed automatic transferring power to the rear wheels as standard equipment. Oh, and if you want all-wheel drive, it’s available across the board.
The latest Cadillac sports an aggressive fastback roofline with a short rear deck and long nose complemented by a minimalist grill. The lower front fascia is an array of plastic slats that that is considerably busier than the rest of the car; complementing the rest of the CT5’s look is LED lighting.

Interesting use of the word Compact but ok. Maybe that’s a clue to what the pricing structure will be. The CT5 will certainly help retain current Cadillac owners and give a viable option to gain conquest buyers.

Warning, for those of you who will dislike anything GM does, the link is mostly positive, I recommend you look for a negative article.
Attached is a good write-up. Looks like GM even addressed the front door pockets, they are flocked.
Interesting that the 2.0 makes only 237 HP. It's 272 HP in my ATS.
And doesn't the 3.6 make about the same 335 HP as the TT 3.0 in this car?

Interiors are becoming too busy for my taste. I would rather see the Escala's Danish Modern influence Cadillac's interiors.
I wish they all could be California squirrels!
Past Rides: 2003 Grand Am GT1 (saved me), 1995 Bonneville SLE (RIP), 1986 635 CSi, 1984 Estate Wagon, 1978 Malibu Classic, 1978 Corvette, 1975 Vega Kammback (Miss ya'), 1971 Dodge Dart Swinger (STFU...it got me there!)

Love it! styling is on point look at that long hood and how far forward the front wheels are pushed. THIS IS LUXURY if you don't get it or complain you aren't a Cadillac buyer.
