2013 Cadillac ATS Performance 4dr Sedan AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
This is a great car, period. Is it a great value? Compared to a similarly equipped 3 series, absolutely. I was ready to "pull the trigger" on a $56K 3 series but couldn't justify its value, especially with that pathetic plastic screen sticking up out of the top of the dash board, really?
CUE, like your first smart phone or new computer operating system, needs understanding. However, it's appalling to see Consumer Reports slam ATS's rating because of CUE--shame on them. The ATS is fun to drive, the sound system is outstanding, cabin noise is non-existent and it handles like a dream--better than a 3 series.
A small trunk, tight rear seat and stiff ride are justified minor complaints.
CUE is awesome, the interior is top notch, cabin noise is non-existent, sound system is amazing and handling is outstanding.
Small trunk, tight rear seat and stiff ride, should be expected for this size and class of vehicle as it was designed to be fun to drive. Any improvement in these areas would make an almost perfect car, well, perfect.
