Vauxhall brings Cadillac to UK

VAUXHALL has confirmed it will bring the Cadillac Seville to the UK in limited numbers starting next spring. As announced at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, General Motors wants to capitalise on Cadillac's premium brand in the competitive prestige car sector.

The all-American luxury executive will take a bow at the London Motor Show in October before the first examples arrive in the UK. The big saloon will be marketed in both SLS and STS versions through a small national network of specialist dealers currently being established.

1998 model year Sevilles feature a completely new body with sharper more pronounced lines, which are more in keeping with European tastes. The aluminium 4.6 multivalve V8, although a little on the large side by European standards, develops 271bhp in SLS guise and a lusty 301bhp in the STS version - transmitted through an electronically controlled four-speed autobox.

With an overall length of 15ft, the Seville isn't the largest of US sedans, but occupants will still be generously accommodated inside the well-equipped cabin. Prices and exact specification details will be announced early next year.
