When the first-generation Cadillac CTS debuted in 2002, it premiered the Art & Science design language with crisp lines and sharp edges. Ask GM design chief Ed Welburn what he thinks of it and this is what he would say,
"It had a dramatic presence, very angular. But when you really look at it, the surfacing of the body was not very sophisticated at all," Welburn said to Automotive News.
The second-generation CTS would add some sculpture that would smooth out the angular look while remaining as interesting as the first-gen model.
So what's in store for the next-generation CTS? Welburn says the car will lose more of its edgy-ness for more contours (see ATS for an example). Welburn goes onto say that the CTS "will continue to be very dramatic, but I think in some ways even more sophisticated."
