How do you term a good sport sedan? It should be the combination of refinement, performance and handling perfectly in harmony with each other. Cadillac ATS appears to have these three facts in its composition particularly in the 4-cylinder turbo V6 engine. The question that remains to be answered is how significant power is for a sports sedan model.


Let us talk about the configuration of the 2013 Cadillac ATS. It has a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder that generates a 202bhp of power and 191 lb-ft of torque. If an owner wants to upgrade the power the option of promoting it to 2. OT engine with 272bhp or a 321bhp, V6, 3.6 Liter. The ATS is capable of a fuel economy measuring 22mpg in the city and 32mpg on highways and it gives the combined average of 26mpg overall. Apart from the base decorations imparted to the car you can also get an additional package of $4, 495 to add to luxury consisting of CUE and part assist for rear and front. The Cadillac ATS is among the cheapest of sports class in the sedan segment and it is priced with the base price of $33, 990.

This is the new-entry in the world of Mercedes C-Class, BMW 3-series and Audi A4 vehicles which have seen constant developments over the years and achieved perfect driving dynamics resulting into hefty sales. The interior of the car is absolutely veering away from the GM, because it has been with intuitive and crisp design. Lots of minor details have been added to the car including the exclusively etched silver trimming. More exciting colors for the interior are available as options including the carbon fiber accented sporty red leather ATS. A big touchscreen is available for the driver equipped with the brand new Cadillac User Experience OS.  The system is highly responsive and features all the tricks belonging to your Smartphones which include the pinch-to-zoom map reading, screen selection with haptic-feedback. A customizable LCD screen is available for the driver as an extension of the CUE offering the best experience of personalization and driving freedom.

While the driver is indulging in the slew of safety components installed in the ATS ensure that no untoward incidents happen to the car. The forward collision alert warns you when the car traveling in the front slows down and you do not act. It is very innovative because it alerts you by vibrating the driver seat. The same has been imparted for blind spot assistance and cross-traffic. This is great assistance when you are a little preoccupied. The seating in the front is very comfortable making the rear seat occupants jealous.

Looks wise the Cadillac ATS is stunning with its headlamp display and design which spills ad flows onto the front hood and in comparison to the Audis, BMWs and Mercedes C-Classes it has a more youngish and fresher appearance. However, you will find a design hiccup in the 2.5 L model because it has a single exhaust vent where as the sportier version is equipped with a beautiful rear bumper containing two exhaust vents.
