    Wow, how is that Audi not 10 years old? Talk about dull, I'd hate to see that vanilla bean in white....

    Re: I'm Normally Not an Audi Guy, But...

    Looks is a personal preference. We can certainly see that. If Envoy likes this car, good. That vehicle is not the flavor of the month for some here, including me, but I'm not going to buy it or lease it or even drive one on a demo.

    If I were going to look at the pricier, sportier types, i.e. Alfa, Audi, Bimmah, Merc, Pontiac, etc., then I think Alfa would get my first look. They're distinct looking in an attractive way, and they have a long pedigree of excellent handling and overall performance. Race Proven.

    And Italian reliability. But GMI's own JBsZ06, who has a Stelvio, likes it, and has had zero issues, just proves that even cars that get panned by the press usually don't have issues. I do recall a couple of the mags having some issues with their test Alfas. That speaks to the vehicle and also to the people who let cars out to the press that haven't been vetted.

    I prefer simpler, less-loaded less-teched-up vehicles myself, I don't need 40 grand worth of toys to make me happy.

    I saw a jag sportwagon yesterday in a parking lot that really caught my eye. But yes, we all have personal preferences. Its why there is not one car company selling one car like they did in eastern europe long ago.

    I forgot Jag. How could I?
    I really itched for a Jag Chevy V8 conversion when they were doing them (in Dallas I think) in the '80s. Or was it the '90s? That's when Jags were VERY distinctive and handsome.

    I like the Genny a lot, but I haven't driven one yet. The G90 is one of the most comfortable cars I've been in south of a Rolls Royce, though. Very nice car.

    I have no idea what to get as my next car. Nothing really screams "BUY ME" to me right now.
    Current:

    2016 Cadillac CTS4 2.0T Performance

    2006 GMC Envoy SLT 4x4

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 take a CT5 with a black plastic windshield so I wouldn't have to see that thing coming lol
    It shows it isn't electric perhaps?
