The 9-3 SportCombi reviews continue

I've just run across another 9-3SC review from ITV, which I've posted. The kicker was the quote at the end:

There's a lot more to come from this charismatic Scandinavian car maker. Let's hope their American masters in GM have the wit to realise their potential as a stand-alone producer and not, as is rumoured, just a convenient assembly facility for their tasteless, but sadly Europe-bound, Cadillac range.
Ooooh. Got Bob right in the cohunas with that one!

Can't wait to see these babies on the road (but unfortunately they're not Oz-bound until well into next year :cry: )

Cadillac, tasteless? 10 years ago definetely, but not now. The new Caddys are great, much more distinctive than the commonplace Mercedes, BMW, and Lexus.
Generally I agree with you. Gone are the days of Opera Lamps, Padded Vinyl Roofs, Whitewall tires, and Faux Wire Wheel Covers. I still have slightly mixed feelings about the "Art & Science" knife edge styling, but it has been growing on me. I've considered purchasing a V-Series CTS even. While I may not love the "Art & Science" styling, it is very distinctive whatever you think. Tasteless is not a word that comes to mind.

That being said, the Escalade and the other Cadillac SUVs and SUTs are about as tasteless as I can imagine. Say all you want about how well those monstrosities are selling, but I think they are gaudy, tasteless and ugly.
