2013 Cadillac ATS
We don't go in for American cars very often, and even less often are we impressed with a Cadillac, CTS-V aside that is. However, after being inundated with an advert blitz that has us intrugued with the travels of two fun loving dudes and their ATS, as well as seeing the sexy pic above is causing us a moment of pause. Coming in the various trims, from 272 to 321 horsepower, and supplied to either an auto or six speed manual transmission dishing power to the rear wheels, we suspect that this is a pretty fun car to drive...definitely not the stodgy cadillac seen in every second parking space at the golf and country club. They've even done away with the faux finishes in the interior, opting for real wood, carbon fibre, or aluminum...depending on your preference. Our pick would be the 2.0L turbo mated to the six speed manual...which in our opinion would be the light and peppy choice....but still being economical if you can keep your right foot off the floor. Out now...and starting at $33,000.
