The 2013 Cadillac ATS is poised to take the stage as the best compact sports sedan on the market. There are not many sedans that can exhibit sports car-like handling and performance yet still boast the features of a luxury sedan. All of this sophistication can be obtained without the sacrifice of fuel economy. The sleek Cadillac has an elegant styling that is second to none.
The 2013 Cadillac ATS offers three engine choices. The base engine is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a smooth shifting 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine output totals 202 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. The turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine has an impressive output of 272 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The turbocharged engine is the only one available with a 6-speed manual transmission. The beast of the group is a 3.6-liter V6 engine pushing out 321 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque.
The ATS comes standard with a well planted independent rear suspension set-up. The enthusiast driver can opt for sport suspension to handle those twisty roads. The electric steering combined with the quick stopping high-end brakes make for some exciting driving. A limited-slip rear differential is available to ensure superior traction in all conditions.
The 2013 ATS greets its driver with high tech gauges and easy to use controls. The infotainment system combines navigation, audio, and mobile technology upon a 8-inch touch screen for your enjoyment. Safety features such as Head-Up Display and Adaptive Cruise Control enhances your driving experience.
