2013 Cadillac ATS: Xenon Headlight Output

January 24, 2014

2013 Cadillac ATS

Last summer, I took a road trip in our long-term 2013 Cadillac ATS and commented on the clear output from the xenon headlights. We got our ATS in the Premium trim level, so these headlights are standard. This is what the light output looks like in a dark garage.

The light output is strong, with a clear cutoff at the top of the beam. Along a dark country road the headlights cast a wide beam and they're aimed low enough that they don't seem to blind oncoming drivers. If I were purchasing an ATS, this is a feature I'd require.
