Cadillac introduced the 2013 ATS at NAIAS in Detroit

At 135hp/L, the new 2.0T is one of the most power-dense engines in the
industry, topping engines from European competitors. ATS will offer both
manual and automatic transmission options, along with rear-wheel and
The ATS will deliver peak highway fuel economy of more than 30 mpg.

I don't know which is better looking, the ATS or the girl presenting it! :)
The ATS is beautiful in person, giving it a very aggressive stance and
look. I was also one of the "lucky ones" that got to play with CUE!

2013 Cadillac ATS.
2013 Cadillac ATS CUE System Demo with Lead Industrial Designer Robert Jablonski
http://www.autobytel.com/new-cars/cadillac/ats/ Autobytel recently caught
up with Robert Jablonski who is the Lead Cadillac CUE Creative Designer.
Robert, who has worked on both the Converj and Plantinum concept cars in
the past, was gracious enough to give us a demo of the new CUE system found
in the 2013 Cadillac ATS. Heck you can even learn a few tricks to help you
operate the CUE system more smoothly.
Located in the gauge cluster is a high intensity and high resolution
5.7-inch display. The new 3-spoke steering wheel has a 5-way controller and
voice recognition system. As the heart of the CUE system is an 8-inch
display and fully capacitive faceplate. The CUE system from Cadillac offers
3 brand new features:
1) Proximity Sensing - As you reach for the large display, the CUE system
senses your hand and activates.
2) Capacitive Touch -- This feature is very similar to a table or smart
phone in that it allows the user to navigate and scroll via touch.
3) Haptic Feedback -- A little vibration or pulse is sent through the
system to your finger that alerts you to the fact you have made a
CUE makes it easy to add favorites, simply drag your favorites up and save.
You can save radio stations, addresses, points of interest, contacts, and

► 2013 Cadillac ATS [interior]
The 2013 ATS, an all-new compact luxury sports sedan intended to challenge
the world's best premium cars. Developed on an all-new, lightweight vehicle
architecture, Cadillac's entry into the world's most significant luxury car
segment goes on sale this summer.
A long, 109.3-inch (2,775 mm) wheelbase and wide front/rear tracks are the
cornerstones of the ATS's firmly planted stance, which is enhanced by short
overhangs and taut sheet metal that appears to wrap tightly around the
tires. Seventeen-inch wheels are standard and 18-inch wheels are available.
Bold vertical lighting elements -- including new LED front signature
lighting detail -- as well as illuminating door handles and active grille
shutters lend technologically advanced style and function to the ATS. The
grille shutters close at certain highway speeds to reduce aerodynamic drag
and enhance fuel economy.
A driver-focused interior with integrated technology and crafted materials
complements the exterior elements and supports the ATS's driving
experience. Everything from the placement of the pedals to the position of
the shifter is designed for effortless and intuitive performance driving.
Available performance seats have power-adjustable bolsters to optimize
lateral support during high-load cornering.
Contributing to the interior's intuitive feel is an instrument panel that
wraps into the doors and a center stack in the mid-instrument panel that
flows into the center console. LED lighting for the bold gauge cluster
enables clear, at-a-glance viewing in all lighting conditions, while
ambient lighting accents functional elements of the console and doors.
Real wood, plated metal plating and carbon fiber trim and Cadillac's
cut-and-sew instrument panel, console and doors enhance the emotional
connection to the ATS. Choices of many interior color themes, each with
unique accent trim material, cover a wide range of flavors -- from light,
open and warm to black and serious, to bold, technical and sporty.
2013 Cadillac ATS Review
With big claims and even bigger aspirations, can the ATS really hope to win
over young luxury buyers from the German brands?
Topping out third gear I've got just enough time to think about grabbing
fourth when the first braking marker is past my front tire and I'm pushing
hard on the four piston Brembos. The lightest car in its class, it slows
with ease as I downshift to second, applying prodigious amounts of throttle
as I crest the right-hander. The rear steps out slightly as I continue to
roll on the throttle and then it happens... stability control.
