There are few vehicle brands that can call themselves one of the most luxurious and comfort friendly giants of the automotive industry. Cadillac consistently raises the bar on efficient and reliable vehicles without the fear of a normal, boring driving experience. The new 2013 Cadillac ATS is one such example, giving drivers new experiences every time they enter the car.
Starting at $33,095, the ATS is an affordable sedan that takes its power from its 2.5L I4 DI DOHC engine with variable valve timing, six-speed automatic transmission with tap-shift control, a maintenance free battery with rundown protection, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, sport suspension, rear-wheel drive, recovery hook, keyless ignition, and a single exhaust with bright tip.
We got to personally check out the ATS thanks to the staff at the Williamson Cadillac dealership, just down the road from us in Miami. What we found when stepping inside the cabin of this Cadillac is that without a doubt it stays true to the normal Cadillac level of luxury, and new technological and convenience features make it all that better. Cabin features include engine oil indicator, Bluetooth and phone connectivity for hands free calling and audio, steering wheel mounted controls for audio, phone, and cruise control, one year of Directions and Connections via OnStar, and a theft deterrent system with engine immobilizer. There are various technological features for the car as well, adding to its entertainment value. The ATS has a 5.7 inch color display information center, three month trial of Sirius XM, seven speaker premium Bose stereo system with Am, FM, and XM as well as USB, SD card, and auxiliary audio ports. Other available features include dual zone automatic climate control and power doors and locks.
Nothing is more important to a driver than the safety of their vehicle and the ATS is no exception. There are driver and front passenger dual stage, knee and side, front and rear head curtain airbags, OnStar vehicle diagnostics, three-point safety belts for all driving and passenger positions, trunk emergency release handle, passenger sensing system, LATCH system, rear child security door locks, daytime running headlights, StabiliTrak stability enhancement, and all speed traction control. Even as a sedan, safety in the ATS is not overlooked for even a moment.
Where many cars fail to give owners a luxury and safety in one reliable vehicle, Cadillac has done just that in the new 2013 Cadillac ATS with an advanced engine set up and world-class maneuverability. With an ATS, life will no longer have limits.
