Description: All-new midsize sedan will enter European market in spring 2006.

The new Cadillac BLS is a front-wheel-drive sedan that continues the strong, angular Art & Science design theme established throughout the U.S. model lineup.

The BLS will be available with a turbodiesel engine, a first for Cadillac. Other engine choices include a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder and a 2.8-liter 6-cylinder, both turbocharged. Manual or automatic transmissions will be available for all powertrains. And while no horsepower figures have been released at this time, Cadillac says that all of the engines — including the turbodiesel — will be quite sporty. Incidentally, the new turbodiesel under the hood of the BLS has a maintenance-free particulate filter that allows it to meet the very stringent Euro 4 emission standards. Extra sound insulation has been added to the car in the roof, trunk and wheel wells to lessen noise intrusion from the diesel, making the ride even quieter for those who opt for non-diesel power.

The show car's 19-in. alloy wheels and LED high-mounted center brake light and taillights may or may not show up on the production car when it goes on sale in Europe in the spring of 2006.

Inside, the BLS can be ordered with DVD-based navigation system with touch-screen functions, Bose sound system, steering wheel controls and a Bluetooth-enabled telephone. From a styling perspective, the BLS has a more congruous look to the design and layout of the center console — let's hope that a similar design finds its way into the user-friendly but busy-looking controls found in the current CTS. A right-hand drive version will be available for the UK market.

It will be interesting to see if the BLS will be brought stateside. With the CTS closer in size to a BMW 5 Series, the BLS, with its sporty chassis and turbocharged 6-cylinder, might make a perfect 3 Series fighter.
