2013 Cadillac ATS Long-Term Road Test

2013 Cadillac ATS: Road Trip to Vegas

March 18, 2013

2013 Cadillac ATS

Living within driving distance of Las Vegas, Nevada is one of the benefits of working in Southern California. Many of our long-term cars get to make this run. Most recently our 2013 Cadillac ATS was called to duty.

Its comfortable cabin is accommodating to most passengers, the suspension is firm but not harsh, and once you get used to CUE there is plenty of entertainment available for those lulls in conversation that happen over long miles.

One glitch, however. The nav system froze up on the way there. We solved this by turning off the car and restarting. All was well after that.

We only filled up twice during our journey but over those two tanks we averaged 25.5 miles per gallon. Our Cadillac ATS Premium is EPA-rated at 21 city/31 highway/24 combined. So, we beat the odds. Can't say the same for our time in Vegas.
