Ã¢â‚¬Å“Middle East customers demand excellence in luxury cars and place a premium on quality and performance, the dominant attributes of the SLS"
Present at Middle East International Motor Show
There has been plenty of talk lately about the Chinese copying European and American cars, in most cases they're worse than the original but in some cases the Chinese are onto something. The Cadillac SLS is maybe one of the best examples of the Chinese getting it right even though it is not exactly a copy but more a derivative.
The Cadillac SLS is a long-wheelbase version of the Cadillac STS luxury sedan, and is the the third in the range after the high-performance STS-V. The SLS is 100 mm longer than the original and was developed for a very specific market in China who demanded a more roomy luxury sedan. That market seems to also be present in the Middle East since the SLS will be making its local debut at the upcoming Middle East International Motor Show (starts 13 November) in Dubai.
“Middle East customers demand excellence in luxury cars and place a premium on quality and performance, the dominant attributes of the SLS, so we pounced on the opportunity to satisfy this demand for long wheelbase luxury sedans,” said Terry Johnsson, President, General Motors Middle East Operations.
