And by classy you mean dull and generic. :p

Sometimes the simplest designs look best. Unpretentiousness is a beautiful thing. ;)

Most people don't hang up bars of soap in lieu of artwork. :p

On second thoughts, my idea is a really bad one. Sorry for wasting your time guys... :blush:

Ford won't sell any of their large US cars in Europe for the same reason, wouldnt be financially viable (nobody asks for them) and it would mess up their average emission figures, which would cost alot of money.

For every vehicle produced between 2012 and 2018 car makers will be penalized ?5 per unit for the first g/km of CO2 and then ?15 for the second gram, ?25 for the third gram and ?95 from the fourth gram onwards. From 2019: ?95 per gram.

Yeah I checked the CTS' CO2 ratings and the car fares very poorly on that front. Damn... I wonder if GM is aware that selling Cadillacs in Europe is likely to be a another financial blunder for them.

The ATS and smaller engines and/or hybrid engines would pick up the slack.
