2013 Cadillac ATS 3.6 Premium Video Review
Driven Car Reviews
December 2, 2012
The auto industry is littered with failed attempts to compete with The King. You probably wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t curious how the newest salvo, the 2013 Cadillac ATS stacks up against you-know-who. No doubt, BMW’s 3 Series has earned its title over the years. It’s as if the BMW engineers made a deal with the devil back in 1975 for the secret of fun-to-drive. To be sure, Lucifer got the short end of that agreement.
The wreath and crest folks- who gave us the Cimarron and Catera mind you- believe ATS can take on 3 Series, C Class, A4, G37 and anyone else in the compact sport sedan segment. And it does.

It’s ready to take on the world.Full article at link.Make no mistake, ATS is a fiercely competitive compact sport sedan and well worth your test drive time. It has its work cut out for itself though. ATS doesn’t have the pedigree that time has bestowed on 3 Series and many will dismiss it simply because there’s no roundel badge. However, if Cadillac maintains this level of performance, handling, and design in the coming years, it should develop a pedigree of it’s own, and a really good rivalry with the Europeans.
