Over the last few years, Cadillac‘s automotive offerings have become an increasingly viable option against its international counterparts. The 2013 ATS brings to the table American’s definition of what a luxury sport sedan should be. Putting the car through its paces in some of the most demanding testing grounds on earth, the ATS offers several different powerplant options ranging from a 2.0L turbo, the award-winning 3.6L V6 or a 2.5L engine, which range from 272 HP to 321 HP. In a time when many manufacturers have begun phasing out manual transmissions, purists can take interest in a 6-speed manual transmission paired to the RWD 272 HP 2.0L Turbo engine. Beyond the performance aspect of the ATS, other technologically advanced interface integration provides excellent usability such as Bluetooth synchronization, upgradeable software, intuitive maps and an apps system. Within the cabin, certain details have not been overlooked including performance seats wrapped in rich leather and authentic trims including wood, aluminum or carbon fiber. The ATS is available now starting at $33,095 USD.
