The Cadillac ATS is a premium four-door compact sedan designed to compete with the likes of the BMW 3 Series, Audi A4 and Mercedes-Benz C-Class. ATS has been produced since 2012 at the GM plant located in the capital of Michigan – Lansing.
The sedan is built on the GM Alpha platform and is offered in both rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions. In America, this “compact Cadillac” can be purchased with three different gasoline power plants: a 2.5-liter inline-four of the LCV series, a 2-liter in-line four with a turbocharger of the LTG series (both engines are third-generation Ecotec) and a 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V6 LFX series.
True, in Russia, the ATS is sold only with a 2-liter supercharged Ecotec engine, producing 276 hp. maximum power.
It is worth noting the outstanding modern design of the car, embodying the desire of the old American brand to attract a younger audience with its products. Not without newfangled LEDs in the design of optics and exterior.
Rich equipment is another of the key advantages of the novelty, designed to attract wealthy youth.
We also note the fully touch-sensitive multimedia system CUE (Cadillac User Experience), which includes controls for music, navigation and the car’s climate system.
