2010 LA Auto show: Cadillac introduces Aston Martin Cygnet slayer in Urban Luxury Concept

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

Gone are the days when “bigger is better” mentality used to rule the auto industry. The auto brands across the world are gradually abandoning it and adapting to the times. Models like Smart ForTwo, Aston Martin Cygnet or Scion iQ are some of the examples and Urban Luxury Concept marks Cadillac’s entry into the arena.

Cadillac’s Urban Luxury Concept is a design study for a supermini-sized city car, intended for urban confines. The concept has an edge over its contemporaries as all of them, except Cygnet, are mostly focused on fuel economy and not on luxury, while this compact caddy promises both.



Conceptualized and designed in the Los Angeles area, the Caddy concept features rather small exterior yet big enough to seat four occupant comfortably. Having a small wheelbase of 97.1 inches, the Urban Luxury Concept measures 151 inches long, 68.1 inches wide and 56.9-inch high. Entry and exit to the vehicle takes place through a pair of scissor doors that extend outward and rotate forward when opened.

The vehicle is powered by a concept hybrid propulsion system which includes a turbocharged 1.0L three-cylinder engine. Engine is supported by electric assist technology, engine start-stop function, brake energy regeneration and a dry dual-clutch transmission, which enable the compact luxury car to offer a projected fuel economy of 56 mpg in the city and 65 mpg on the highway.

LOS ANGELES – Cadillac today introduced the Urban Luxury Concept, a design study exploring a new type of vehicle that offers a luxury experience in a diminutive size. The Cadillac Urban Luxury Concept complements its compact dimensions with the design, features and technology for which Cadillac is known.
