2013 Cadillac ATS: Enjoying It More This Time Around

September 25, 2013

2013 Cadillac ATS

The last time I drove our 2013 Cadillac ATS was a couple months ago. The car hasn't changed other than more miles on its odometer, but I'm enjoying the ATS more this time around.

I suspect it has to do with knowing what I do and don't like about the car going in. Two qualities I really do like are the ATS's styling and its sharp handling, and I think I'm appreciating them more. True enough, the Caddy does look pretty sweet parked in my driveway. The neighbors compliment it, and friends ask about it. It's not something you see every day, this anti-3 Series/C-Class/IS350.

I'm also taking advantage of the ATS's handling prowess more. Use it or lose it, right? So why not sweep into turns with a bit more enthusiasm than normal? The Cadillac ATS is ideal in these situations, and it makes the overall driving experience that much more rewarding.
