2014 Cadillac ATS Review by Automotive Trends
The all-new Cadillac ATS has scored big on the trophy circuit during the
last year, picking up hardware from industry leaders and making the BMW
3-Series as scared as it's ever been. We spent a week with a fully loaded
V6 model to see if it lived up to the hype and we're glad to report this
Cadillac will reward the driving enthusiast every time the road curls up.
Yes, it handles beautifully with the advanced magnetic ride control
offering a pleasantly refined ride, or a hard-edge attack mode, at the push
of a button. The 3.6-liter V6 is one of GM's best engines and with 321 hp
it pushed our rear-wheel drive ATS around with authority and a purposeful
engine/Exhaust note we're not used to
hearing in a Cadillac. Engineers included plenty of other performance parts
like 18" summer tires, Brembo front brakes and paddle shifters to control
the 6-speed automatic. It handled itself well enough but an 8-speed needs
to join the lineup soon if Cadillac wants to stay up with what BMW is
offering, and a 6-speed manual paired to the V6 would also be an
enthusiast's delight. As it sits our criticisms of the ATS mostly reside in
the interior where you'll find Cadillac's unresponsive, but highly
customizable, CUE touch-sensitive interface. Simple tasks like adjusting
the volume or tuning a station are lessons in frustration and we stuck to
steering wheel controls and voice commands whenever possible. The cabin
materials, however, are top notch and the front seats are bolstered just
right. Back seat room is very tight so you'll want to consider whether the
athletic little ATS is right for your needs. If it is, you will be hard
pressed to find a better looking or more responsive sport sedan for less
All-New 2013 Cadillac ATS - In/Out/Driving [HD]
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.
