    Nice little hatch.

    Really wish they made a hatch, or at least had a life-size concept of one.

    Do a Cadillac Macan cuv.....based off ATS. Chassis.

    Your sketch is cool but I believe Americans and Chinese want their hatchbacks to actually be CUV in appearance..

    What happens with the Infiniti QX30 hatchback and it's more cuv like version with regards to sales will be quite telling.

    Americans love cuv s...but for some reason want them to look like trucks...not hatches...

    Better to go with the flow on that and not fight the trend..

    Just big wheels and tires and a less raked front end.

    Nice work Burns!

    I too would be interested in a Macan/Evoque type Cadillac.

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.

    I love "stitching" these kind of 'pairs' together

    ...was thinking of a Macan with an old Eldorado's fenders tho didn't go that far

    Here is a RWD Macan competitor:



    Very reserved design, which would probably please most of GMI, but I wouldn't pick this direction for Cadillac. I would go more artsy, more flair. Cadillac is at a point where the core pillars of A&S have been cemented, but it can still afford to be more free in its design work.

    I will sketch some Macan competitors with that philosophy.

    i.e.
