The new crossover would be about the same size as the Buick Encore and would target the Mercedes-Benz GLA, the Audi Q3 and the BMW Active Tourer, the aforementioned source adds, quoting senior vice president of global Cadillac, Robert E. Ferguson.

"If you look at any growth forecast, or even look at present-day growth, I would say every luxury provider is looking hard at that set," he said. "We would be silly not to. I think the Encore is a terrific vehicle and the perfect size. I would love to have a really luxurious competitive vehicle with that stance."

When asked about diesel engine, Ferguson replied that he “would love to have a diesel engine for all of our Cadillacs this decade,” adding that oil burners would help the company’s European ambitions.
