Should Cadillac made a two-door coupé of its award-winning third-generation CTS Sedan? Yes, it absolutely should. But it should take it one step further and offer a CTS convertible as well.
Not only would such a model satisfy demand for a mid-size Cadillac convertible, but it would also give Cadillac its rightful share of the midsize luxury convertible class that the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet and the BMW 6 Series Convertible have all to themselves.
And that’s why our rendering maestro has drawn up this CTS Convertible. If the product planners at Cadillac green light such a model, we believe that it would — for the most part — look like this. Exactly like the relationship between the ATS Sedan and the ATS Coupe, we kept the wheelbase of the CTS Convertible the same as on the CTS Sedan, gave it a tasteful chrome trim around the base of the soft top, added some soft lining to conceal the top and the mechanism, and then raked the windscreen back a few degrees.
We’d like to see Cadillac bring a CTS convertible to market and show Mercedes and BMW how it’s done. Do you agree?
