I think I will wait to see the CTS coupe

After car shopping for several months I was close to buying an Audi A5 when the economy went belly up. At that point, I felt the need to buy American and switched my attention to the Camaro. At a shade over 6'6", however, I needed to see the car in person first and when I did, the interior compared to the Audi (who makes the finest interiors out there) left a lot to be desired.

I have waited this long and I have a decent vehicle to drive so as of now I am leaning toward suspending my decision for a while until I can see the Cadillac. The CTS sedan interior is one of the best ever in an American vehicle and in a two-door sport coupe, that could be my perfect car.

I love the CTS, and at 6'2, I can definately see how it would be getting tight at 6'6.
I do suspect somewhere down the line I, or someone in my close family will be purchasing a CTS. Beautiful cars!

The headroom (without the sunroof) and legroom in the Camaro are acceptable for me. My dissatisfaction with the Camaro's interior compared to the Audi A5 and Cadillac CTS relates to the quality of the materials, not interior space. Sorry for the confusion.

My family has 3 Audi's, never had a major problem with any of them and the issues that we have had are all quick fixes. Id say BMW is the best service wise but Audi is up there too.

lol yeah i havent completly written them off yet but there giving us the run around....
but on other note i dont like the engine the 2.0 t is so slow and that car weights more than the camaro. the s5 is the way to go but i dont have that kinda money. after comeing out a 4th gen interior's mean almost nothing to me it has nothing to do with the drving experience atleast thats my opinion

Well thats not really what Audi is about, the thrill of driving is more BMW's land. Audi is more the comfortable, entertaining, and classy route. Everything in the new audi's is very clean sleek and sexy, while also being very european (attention to detail) and their interiors are second to none.

The CTS sedan is awsome. The coupe concept is sharp as heck. You can't go wrong either way.

I love the CTS, but the coupe styling just doesn't work for me.

Different strokes for different folks. IMO the styling of the CTS coupe is fantastic.

I like the exterior. The interior center stack reminds me of Infinity interiors. Not fond of the steering wheel though.

The photographs appearing above are of the concept version of the CTS coupe revealed at the Detroit auto show in January 2008. The production version will not be introduced until next summer at the earliest. I have no clue what the actual steering wheel and the other interior features will look like but if the CTS sedan, the new SRX crossover and even the new Buick LaCrosse are any indication, the CTS coupe interior will be first rate.

Why would someone post such a statement on a Camaro Forum? What's wrong, isn't there a Cadillac CTS forum? Or (God forbid) an Audi Forum?

to me the outside suffers from a case of the "2010 mustangs":( the front and side profile is very nice, but the back end is pretty horrible. Id have to give it a loot in person, but if the interior is similar to the sedan then its going to be 100% top notch.

i dont really like the back side of the cts coupe, i dont know how they could make the tail lights any better if they would change the shape idk it would look out of place

the cts coupes rear looks like a g35s rear the front is nice but the back is just plain imo

I can't wait to see the final version...released and out on the roads. I'll give it Caddy...that's one bad @ss ride.

And, if you do decide to go with a CTS coupe, more power to you.....BEAUTIFUL ride.

For the poster "Windy City", this is a "Camaro versus ..." forum and the Cadillac CTS coupe and Audi A5 are 2-door enthusiast-oriented sport coupes like the Camaro.

It is my understanding that this site is open to prospective Camaro purchasers who may also be considering other sport coupe competitors and is not restricted to participation by folks who already purchased a new Camaro. Am I wrong?

I own an 05 cts now (for sale!) and love the newer styles (08+) but for some reason i think the cts coupe is a ugly car, and a terrible idea....its competition is so far ahead of it performance wise, unless they up the ante it won't sell well.


Again, just my opinion, best of luck to you if you buy it, but if you're too tall i heard the challengers were bigger, tho it seems like nothing can touch a camaro right now.

The back end is the only part I don't like, but I am guessing it will change some production. Now if they make a CTS-V coupe, Um HUH!
