First Drive Review- 2013 Cadillac ATS
Cadillac wants you to know that it is very, very serious about just how important the success of the 2013 Cadillac ATS entry-level luxury sedan is to the company. The vehicle has been described to us as a 'make or break' vehicle for the luxury brand, one that is being counted on to go forth into the premium wilderness and convert as many BMW, Audi, and Mercedes-Benz buyers as possible by way of its ultra-competitive charms.
We were given the chance to put a significant number of miles on several versions of the new 2013 Cadillac ATS this past month, and we came away suitable impressed. The ATS is unlike any other model in the current Cadillac lineup, yet it feels like the natural evolution of a design language and engineering architecture that has finally come around to the idea that it's not enough to merely be 'good' in order to compete on a global scale - excellence is in fact required.
