After its introduction last year, the ATS receives a few minor changes for 2014. Automatically dimming high beams are now part of the Driver Awareness and Driver Assist packages. An extra outlet has been added to the rear center console and cars equipped with paddle shifters get a brand new steering wheel. Four new colors are also available.
Excellent handling; rear-wheel-drive; a variety of fuel efficient engines; Cadillac-style luxury
The Cadillac ATS competes with other compact luxury cars from BMW, Audi, Mercedes and Lexus. While previous efforts had focused on comfort over performance, the ATS represents a firm departure from this strategy, Cadillac opting to match BMW with a strong emphasis on rear-wheel-drive handling and a lightweight body structure. The ATS starts at about $33,000, undercutting the price of a 3-series BMW by about $3,000.
