The 2013 Cadillac ATS delivers a driving experience that advances the brand's performance legacy with a balance of racetrack-honed control and uncompromising refinement. From the very outset of development, engineers focused on making the Cadillac ATS one of the lightest cars in the compact luxury segment. Its curb weight of less than 3,400 pounds (1,542 kg) is a key contributor to a world-class driving experience and helps make the new sport sedan more efficient.

The Dart is based on a version of the Fiat Compact platform, like the Alfa
Romeo Giulietta but enlarged 1.5 in (38 mm) in width and with a 3.7 in (94
mm) longer wheelbase that is now called the Compact U.S. Wide (CUSW)
platform. Development took about 18 months to design the Dart on the
platform of the Alfa Romeo Giulietta adapted to U.S. requirements.

2013 Cadillac XTS Walkaround Car Review Video with Lead Designer Christine Park
Autobytel spent an afternoon with Cadillac Lead Designer Christine Park who
is responsible for the brilliant interior design featured on the XTS. The
2013 Cadillac XTS is an all new full size luxury sedan from the American
luxury brand. The XTS is poised to wear the crown as the most
technologically sophisticated vehicle in the Cadillac stable. Besides an
array of advanced features; the XTS offers tons of interior room, luxury
amenities, dynamic performance, and an elegant exterior design. The new
Cadillac XTS will be replacing the outdated STS and DTS full-size sedans.
The 2013 Cadillac XTS is positioned one level about the current CTS in
terms of size and price. The XTS is built upon the General Motors Epsilon
II platform. The driver compartment has a sleek elongated look that not
only looks great but allows for a large amount of interior space. The
overall shape of the XTS is crisp and tailored and the character lines down
the sides look stunning. Up front there is a bold chrome grille that
screams Cadillac as it grabs your attention. The wheels are 19-inch chrome
pieces with 20-inch wheels offered on the Platinum Edition.
The 2013 Cadillac XTS will come in 3 different trim levels: Luxury,
Premium, and Platinum. The interior of the XST is not only spacious as
previously mentioned but down right beautiful. Cadillac customers demand a
very high level of luxury and quality and the XTS continues that tradition.
The XTS will be the first vehicle equipped with the revolutionary CUE
infotainment center. See more info on the CUE below. The XTS features
leather trim and wood accents everywhere. The Head-Up Display features
color readouts. The music chores are carried out by a top of the line Bose
Studio surround sound system. Besides the vast amount of luxury features
and options, the XTS is packed with the latest safety technology.

2013 Cadillac XTS Review
Huge luxury without the huge price tag, XTS wows with technology
Cadillac's return to large luxury comes with an inherent gamble, that
Americans want to buy, and will continue to want to buy, large luxury
machines. With compact cars now outselling mid-size ones, there seems to be
no evidence to support this plan. Then again, perhaps the luxury segment is

2013 Cadillac ATS review details
The engine lineup starts with a standard 2.5L four-cylinder; a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder and the V-6 are
available. The four-cylinders are next-generation engines, with the 2.0L turbo offered with a manual transmission --
a choice that's unavailable in some luxury cars.
Increased efficiency was a priority for the new four-cylinders. It was
achieved partly through lower engine friction, which was reduced by up to
16 percent using new technologies such as a variable-displacement oil pump
and, with the 2.5L, an actively controlled thermostat. Cadillac proprietary
computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis techniques were used to develop
an all-new combustion system with a higher compression ratio, which also
helps Boost efficiency.
The 2.5L is rated at 202 horsepower (151 kW) and 191
lb.-ft. or torque (259 Nm), while the 2.0L turbo -- the latest in a series of technologically
advanced, high-output turbo engines --
is rated at 272 horsepower (203 kW) and 260
lb.-ft. of torque (353 Nm). The award-winning 3.6L V-6 is rated at 321 horsepower (239 kW)
and 275 lb.-ft. of torque (373 Nm).
At 136hp/L, the new 2.0L turbo is one of
the most power-dense engines in the industry, topping engines from European
All of the engines feature direct injection and dual overhead camshafts
with continuously variable valve timing, which help optimize power and
efficiency, as well as reduce emissions. And all of the engines are matched
with six-speed transmissions, including the Hydra-Matic 6L45 automatic with
tap-shift control, and a six-speed manual available with the turbo engine.
The ATS is offered with Cadillac CUE (with or without navigation) -- a
comprehensive, in-vehicle experience that merges intuitive design with auto
industry-first controls and commands for information and entertainment
data. It is designed to be unique for each consumer, from the "simple user"
to the fully connected "super user."
CUE (Cadillac User Experience), pairs entertainment and information data
from up to 10 Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices, USBs, SD cards and MP3
players with a vehicle infotainment system that reduces complexity through
customized information, voice commands and fewer buttons and larger icons.
For example, most of today's luxury cars have around 20 buttons controlling
the radio and entertainment functions. CUE has only four.
The heart of CUE is the eight-inch LCD multi-touch sensitive screen,
seamlessly integrated into the top of the central instrument panel and a
motorized, fully capacitive faceplate at the bottom concealing a 1.8L
storage area. The vibrant LCD screen displays CUE's home page, which
resembles a smart phone's screen, by using large, easy-to-target icons to
execute commands. Capacitive technology refers to using electrodes to sense
the conductive properties of objects, such as a finger.
