Benchmarked extensively against the most dominant German engineered automobiles in its class, this 270HP 2.0L turbocharged behemoth out powers the 2012 BMW 328i (240hp) on paper and on the track.
Available in rear wheel or all wheel drive, the engineers have taken the term ‘class – leading’ to new levels by approaching every detail minutely. For example, the Brembo brakes employ four pistons—[Audi, BMW and Mercedes each employ a single piston design] —to create a more even application of braking power, maximizing both performance and the life of the brakes.
The exterior styling with its aggressive sharp lines and dominant chrome grill is distinctly Cadillac. Luxury cues from the flagship XTS have been employed into the cabin of the ATS including the choice of seven distinct handcrafted interior environments. Alongside this refined luxury interior comes CUE; the Cadillac User Experience. An innovative driver interface setting the benchmark for how drivers will interact with their vehicles. A world of information and entertainment is at the swipe of your finger, or the natural sound of your voice. Updated apps and software will firmly place the Cadillac ATS at the pinnacle of the luxury compact sport segment.
