    Looks good, the headlights really fit in well! Though I do have to imagine it with a Cadillac grill, otherwise the grill shape looks like the Acura shield..

    Looks like it sits up a little higher, but the headlights reminded me of the new Prius.

    Compared to RDX, its lower, a little longer and a lot longer wheel-base.

    Compared to this, you can see that it really aligns with the Prius well.

    That RDX is not the same angle. Proportions are challenging to master, really requires a good understanding of the automobile.

    You did a far better job at designing a new Cadillac front end than Cadillac did.

    Great work.

I've talked to someone about this on another site that confirmed it Navigator isn't even being bench-marked at Cadillac too low for them.

    You did pretty good, but I can't find a real picture that aligns with a fictitious car, if you notice the side aligns well with the Prius, but not the front, on the RDX the front matched-up better, but the side was off a bit. I could have skewed your sketch or the actual cars to make a better match, I chose not to do that.
