Pros & cons


Different from the norm, decent performance, uses Saab platform underneath


Other estates have larger luggage compartments, lack of brand awareness, tiny dealer network

Written by David Ross Published: 6 June 2019 Updated: 6 June 2019


Cadillac relied on Saab engineering to produce its smallest model, the BLS. Based on the Saab 9-3 Sportwagon (and built in the same plant) the BLS Wagon arrived a couple of years after its saloon counterpart and is Cadillac’s first ever estate car. At the time of the Wagon’s launch, Cadillac’s presence in the UK had reduced to just five dealers with three additional approved repairers, so brand and product awareness is a major challenge.

However, the BLS Wagon is a competent car, if a little short on carrying capacity compared with some rivals.
