Currently, Cadillac is offering up a fleet of well executed products. However, when we look at things objectively, 2012 will leave us with…3 body-styles of CTS (in normal and extra-strength) and 2 utility vehicles (SRX for normal folk and the Escalade in 3 body styles for the more ostentatious among us).

Competitive Analysis – Audi A3 TDI
