Cadillac Lyriq Concept: I don't know....



I am not quite sure what to think of this...

On one hand, it does look pretty futuristic and high end. But it also looks a bit "plasticky" for some reason.  Not sure why. Or maybe it's just the 2 acres of that dark gray plastic upfront...

I like the stance of the car. It looks lie a sporty, low wagon, which is great.
the interior isn't that crazy, as it feels like a natural evolution of the new Escalade. Which is already great. 

But this is still a "Concept". And it is hard to guess what will change for production. Let's hope the interior stays mostly the same. I am not sure it really needs these LEDs on each side of the rear hatch. (But that will probably stay...)

The clown car wheels are too distracting from the overall clean shape. It needs to be distinctive for maximum virtue-signaling.

I'm positively surprised. It's a more cohesive and elegant design than i was expecting. Definitively a better effort than the horrendous BMW iNext. But my rational side still wonders why it has such a long hood (other than for design reasons). Carmakers should rethink this styling trope in EVs. If you want an example of how a monovolume shape can still look dramatic and luxurious, check the superb Renault Vel Satis concept from 1998 for reference.

Very futuristic indeed. Although, after all that hype, i was expecting a bigger screen. Especially when startups like Byton are promising to bring to market 48-inch screens in their cars ( but i also heard they went bankrupt recently so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ).

Looks good to me until I get to the rear quarter.

I like this a lot, both exterior and interior, not that I'll ever be buying a Caddy.

I like it. It looks like a tall wagon hatchback. Hopefully the bean counters don't mess it up.

I think it looks pretty amazing and very modern both inside and out. Exactly what Cadillac needs right now.

Maybe it just me, but the back of this Lyriq Concept looks awkward,

Great stance. Overall, very impressive design. Shame it's 2 years away. Who knows how the market will be like then. At least this makes me hopeful for the Celestiq...

That rear is horrendous
