NINETY EIGHT REGENCY

Design Notes: 1992 Cadillac Seville

Recommended Posts

It was definitely a return to substantial, regal good looks from Cadillac, in a modern idiom. But I am afraid long-term damage had been done to Cadillac by the previous, tiny Seville, even though the 4.5 and 4.9L versions of the HT V8 were reliable, smooth performers, the look of the car, especially the interior, just could not compete with what buyers were conditioned to want at that point... manifested in M-B, BMW and finally, Lexus.

They've yet to recover in some ways, especially in the sales race.

Some of the earlier design studies look much too Buick to have worked for Cadillac. They may have made a great Park Ave though.

I actually liked the late 80s Seville, it was about the size of the first gen CTS. The greenhouse on it was a bit square so it looked a bit like a Buick or Olds, but almost every 80s car had a square greenhouse. I like the 90s Seville also, although it got a bit too big and too close to the Deville in size. Would have been nicer if the 90s Seville was smaller.

Those early clay models that use many of the third gen Seville parts, gives off a very mid 80's Thunderbird vibe from the back.
