    I think this will be an interesting little thing. Cadillac needs to jump on this bandwagon and offer a super premium 4 door hatch above the Buick Verano with massaging seats, LED's and all the cool trendy things in luxury for the city dwellers.

    Hmmn, why does the term "low hanging fruit" come to mind?

    I see nothing remotely luxurious or even cool about it. But I'm sure Cadillac should have one.

    Up to 306hp? That sort of power would really make that vehicle quick and probably a lot of fun to drive.
    Research is what I am doing when I don't know what I am doing.

    The provincialism of some GMI posters are amazing.

    Mercedes Benz offer cars that compete in segments from the A-segment Fiat 500, such as this A-Class, through subcompacts like the Fiesta/Sonic with its B-Class B-segment Mercedes, to compacts like the C-class, Cruze/Focus competitor to midsize and full size cars like the E Class and S Class.

    Yet there are posters here who maintain that Caddy or Buick should never offer a car smaller than a CTS or Regal, as it cannnot be a luxury car.

    I wonder if this car will be the first new Mercedes in a while with a decent design.

    Mercedes does not have a mainstream brand, so if they want to compete with lower end cars they have to make Mercs to go against them. GM has Chevy.

    Let's not turn this into another Cadillac thread, there are plenty on the subject as is.
