Cadillac President Johan de Nysschen has revealed the company will “definitely” get a Mercedes CLA competitor.

Speaking to The Detroit Bureau, de Nysschen said an entry-level model is a “must-have” vehicle. The executive declined to go into specifics but entry-level luxury cars such as the Audi A3 and Mercedes CLA have been a huge hit with American consumers.

de Nysschen also reiterated the need for more crossovers. While he has previously said he wants a crossover to slot below the SRX and another crossover to slot between the SRX and Escalade, he told the website about a mysterious "complex crossover." That's pretty vague but de Nysschen said Cadillac will likely have “three more [crossovers] than [they do] today" by the end of the decade.

Last but not least, de Nysschen said he wants more coupes, convertibles and performance cars. He hinted some of these could be niche models but there's no word on specifics.
