2013 Cadillac ATS
|   Tuesday, July 02, 2013
Getting straight to the point the 2013 Cadillac ATS is offered with three separate engine options. The standard engine option is 200 horsepower 2.5-ltr joined with 6 speed manual transmission which can produce over 30 miles per gallon on the highway. The second option is a turbo-charged engine with 270 horsepower 2.0-ltr and comes with 6-speed automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual transmission which offers all-wheel drive. The third and the top choice is the 320 horsepower engine with all-wheel drive and automatic transmission.


The ATS is an all-new compact luxury sport sedan which gives a wonderful experience of all-wheel drive. The ATS is equipped with Cadillac's very own customizable user interface for media and vehicle information. The user can also opt for heavy safety auxiliary including blind zone alert, lane departure warning system, separate automatic brakes for front and rear, vision camera for rear and full-speed adaptive cruise control.

The design and engineering of this model is very impressive. The ATS has a front engine, rear drive layout which is based on the brand new Alpha platform. The car is also equipped with four-wheel independent suspension power steering and four-wheel disc brakes. When you take the driver seat, the first impression of the ATS is an excellent one. The buyer can opt from 7 different color schemes for the interiors including one with aluminum finish and carbon fiber.

The information displayed to the driver is clearly visible to the driver. The 8.0-inch LCD touch screen for the Cadillac's very own user interface system called the Cadillac User Experience looks fabulous and remains highly visible under direct sunlight or with sunglasses on. The proximity sensor installed in the CUE has a unique feature that it brings up only additional buttons on the display whenever the sensor detects the driver's hand nearby which allows the screen to remain uncluttered mostly. The driver can squeeze and spread the map scale with the fingers just like doing on the smartphone and the navigational system can bring contact addresses directly from the connected device or phone.

The car is also equipped with traction and stability control but if these controls are switched off, the ATS still performs very well and smooth and the strong brakes adds more to this. As for the looks, Cadillac ATS 2013 is a little longer than the Mercedes C-class and the BMQ 3-series normally because of its pointy nose and tail that all Cadillac cars have in common. The interiors of the car give a feel of 3-series two generations back ago which means that they have a tidy and old look with a tighter cabin. Two adults can fit in behind each other however; the knee room is not enough. The trunk of the Cadillac ATS is also the smallest in the pack.

Nonetheless, the Cadillac ATS is a descent presentable car with all the good looks even if parked alongside with a lane of attractive cars. The powertrains could be slightly quieter at full throttle but at cruising speed it is a nice and relaxing experience, as good as any other car out there.
