Before you tell me, I forgot the slider on the drivers side, NO I did not, It's a Cadillac, you get both, a slider on the passenger side for the kids and a suicide door on the driver's side for those nights on the town with friends...
( problem is I forgot the front door & stuff !...I'll fix it. Why do I never see this stuff until I post it here?...oh, I'm blinded by so many different designs I think ! )
This is a small Cadillac, based upon the Opel Signum. An entry level mini-sportvan to compete with import offerings in the USA. Many of you here have said Caddy does not need a minivan, I think they do.
If they want to compete and win, then you gotta get 'em early, BMW has learned this very well. This is NOT just a rebadge of an Opel for Cadillac, it is a redesign with completely different front & rear clips and a cab forward greenhouse too.
Cadillac tried this size out before and failed because it used a known cheap american car (Caviler/Cimmeron) this is a great car to start with and unique to Cadillac with it's features, including free Ipod downloads for the life of the warranty !!!...that should get'em in the showroom !

Forget the bottom pic, but the upper is surprisingly nice!
Some details that you might want to work on:
1. The way the glass tailgate meets the right taillight - there's something off about it and it doesn't look as if it was the same way as on the left (which is very nice)
2. The windows on both doors have to be the same size or smaller as the doors, otherwise they won't open. Besides, it looks goofy. I'd have the doors reach as far as the wheelarches and strenghten the rear pillar
Thank You !...I had a feeling the rear view was going to be more appropriate here, & I will work on it a little bit more. AS you will see I did exactly as your advice said, I agreed 100% with your review...THX.Originally Posted by Bravada

BTW, if you want to see and read about the car this design is based upon goto;
Opel & Vauxhall both produce the same basic model now.
um, yeah. it's a saturn, not a caddy. (does this in any way look like it fits in with caddy's stable?) the opel/ vauxhall look is now the saturn look, as per the sky and aura. and this is barely distinguished, in the front, from its donor car.
and there's no way those windows are ever rolling down. ever.
the wheels on the first one are better.

...allright, it could be a Saturn, but there are so many already done here I wanted someting different and it fit with my first few ideas too, which I deleted already I think...Nope here it is;
same idea that i started with as the finished one.

Very very cool!!
I would probably suggest badging it a Saturn though. Just seems to fit more. But really badges don't matter..very cool idea.

the back view is a good pic, your photoshop work is improving very fast.
submit the back view pic
Its pretty good. I don't know if I could picture this passing as a Caddy. I like the rear veiw. I think it sould be an Opel.
T he first thing I thought was Signum...looks good, the top pic that is.
The top one looks surprisingly good. It's a Saturn, and all the Cadillac badges in the world can't change that, but it's good.
The bottom one is messy and seems mistake laden. And the headlights look woefully inappropriate. And the forced Cadillac look doesn't suit it at all.
So, half way there.
Also, why on earth is iPod in the name?
