2013 Cadillac ATS Long-Term Road Test

2013 Cadillac ATS: Flashback Interior

September 20, 2013

2013 Cadillac ATS

After a road trip in the 2013 Cadillac ATS Turbo, I declared it the "best all-rounder we've got" and I stand by that statement. I really do love the ATS and when an ATS-V is introduced, the market for the BMW M3 will get a lot more competitive. But, the overhead console with its On-Star controls, interior lighting and sunroof controls, are seriously outdated.

My brother recently commented, "This looks like it's out of Dad's old Astro Van." He was right. This set of plastic trim absolutely looks like it could belong in a van from the 1990s. It's the cheapest looking piece in the cabin and it doesn't match the aesthetically pleasing surfaces that define the dashboard and CUE system.
