GM has been on the path to redemption with Cadillac for a few years now. It'* just that the world hasn't really noticed yet. Maybe this will get some people interested...
Now if they can get a performance version together again, they can really smack the Germans around...

The interior is nice, but the exterior styling is:

If I want a small(er) luxury sport sedan, Cadillac would be one of the last automakers on my list.
