You are right about eye of the beholder. If that interior was all black and the diamond stitching (totally played out imo) was removed, it would look nice but nothing earth shattering. XT6 is nothing earth shattering either, but a platinum version with a two tone interior/digital gauges etc would look just as nice. It's all subjective, and as you said, 'in the eye of the beholder'. The Renault is nice, but a paradigm shift in the design of small car interiors it isn't. But whatever floats your boat. Oh and my boat as well!
As far as the interior goes, the 2020 Escalade will hopefully meet people's expectations of what they want to see from The Standard Of The World..

Tweener? But if that's the case then so is the Lexus LS and XJ, as it has more legroom than both. The 7Series has almost identical legroom.. so we are basically saying that all the competitors to the S-Class are tweeners? Gotcha
NVH? U really haven't experienced a CT6. Its one of the quietest cars I've ever been in, even under full throttle. Not taking away from the S-Class, but the CT6 is as quiet or damn near. I didn't have a meter, but my ears.. they work fine.
Interiors? Lexus' terrible infotainment? But wait.. that was normally the first thing peole went after on Cadillac. The CUE system. And it wasn't even a nuisance by the time the CT6 arrived. Faster, and more intuitive by the generation presented for the 6.
The CTS is a bad example of Cadillac not being able to charge more. The CTS was introduced with very little marketing, and change in size, and a drop on available trims. If U don't think that a loss of the coupe effected sales then I don't know what to say to U

I've spent a little less time admittedly, but I know for fact that one can ascertain the levels of sound coming inside the car along with vibrations, or lack of, in less time.I've spent just over 1200 miles in a CT6 rental (thanks National). I stand by my comment. I'm not calling the CT6 unrefined by any stretch, just not the class standard in my opinion. It does have the best ride/handling compromise though for me.
I was referring to the Lexus interior/infotainment comment U made. The media normally spent more time bitching about CUE than they did inspecting the CT6's interior.You can check my posts, I've never said anything in this thread about CUE in the CT6. The interior has other foibles I was more concerned with. I definitely agree with you that the CUE complaints are overblown.
Yeah. Call me crazy, but if for the better part of 5 years a company sells a Sedan, Coupe and Wagon, then next gen only sells the coupe.. I have it on good authority and logic that if that previous coupe buyer goes back into the dealership to get a coupe and they no longer make one, and he/she doesn't want a sedan... SALE LOST.There's always an excuse.
Man,you guys are still pissing in each other faces about this?
What could have been with Zeta through developed to its full potential, that platform covered
everything from Camaro through to a 120" WB utility that was never developed.
Had GM stuck with light weighting and evolving that platform into premium products, Cadillac
would have two cars and three Utilities all on the one RWD/AWD platform with great handling
characteristics at a fraction of the cost of developing Alpha and Omega.
While I don't deny that Cadillac has great products to day, it just seems like they went from
New York to Los Angeles via Germany (BMW). The distraction of pursuing BMW got the better
of GM and I think that Cadillac paid a hefty price for that in delaying the roll out of better Utilities.
