2015 Cadillac ATS Sedan Reviews
We'ven't however driven the ATS coupe, but we actually like the ATS sedan, which has notched a near second-location finish in a comparison evaluation with BMW's 3series and a third-location finish in a different evaluation with the 3er and Lexus's upgraded IS350 F Activity. The Caddy's only leading demerits complex CLUE infotainment system and are its unsatifying engines.
Why It Issues: While two automobiles sharing a title can seem somewhat distinct, one (the sedan) likely should not be distinguishable from the other (the coupe) because it seems old--showroom equilibrium must be preserved. So the sedan was sent by Cadillac again to the stylists so that they could present it the upgraded coupe parts, including a newer frontend treatment and the newest badge layout.
System: We are perhaps not totally positive the coupe's broader haunches would be ported by Cadillac up to the sedan, while technically potential; after all, it has to set the coupe aside somehow.
The ATS's physique, however, gets a few easily obvious tweaks, mainly to the entrance. The coupe's front end styling seems to have now been smacked onto the sedan without the changes. The grille is bigger than before, with tasteful, slender slats instead of the present version's net treatment, and Cadillac's now-wreathless badge is on outstanding display. Underneath the grille, there is a total-width lower consumption part indistinguishable to the coupe's atmosphere-sucker.
Powertrain: This unique ATS sedan is a foundation 2.5-liter version, as evidenced by its solitary tailpipe (turbo charged four-cylinder and V 6 versions get double exhausts), therefore we suppose the entry level four-cylinder will carry-on. In the two door, the factory makes 295 pounds and 272 hp -foot of torsion; the sedan's edition makes the same power, but 35 less pounds-ft. The extra turn would result in a pleasant boost. The sedan's variety-topping V6 likely will not get an update, offered 275 pounds-foot of torsion regardless of the amount of doorways it is dragging around and a similar 321 hp is given by the six. A six-rate vehicle should continue being typical on the foundation 2.5-litre, V 6, and all-wheel-drive turbo-four versions, while a six-rate stick probably will stay accessible simply on the back-drive turbo automobiles.
Contest: Audi A4, 3 Series, Lexus IS, Mercedes Benz C-course.
Estimated Entrance and Cost: Given how whole this ATS sedan's shift seems to be, we anticipate the four door to reach dealers this summertime. In maintaining the small nature of the sedan's updates, pricing should hew carefully to today's version, which begins at $33,990.View PhotosView Videos
