The 2013 Cadillac ATS 2.0T tries to dethrone the 2013 BMW 328i from the front of the entry-level luxury segment on the latest episode of Car and Driver.

The first compact Cadillac joins the midsize segment to take on BMW’s top-seller, the 3 Series and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Cadillac ATS will be offered with both rear-wheel and all-drive options, and the company describes it at “nimble, fun and quick,” traits typical of a midsize, sport and luxurious car.

Let’s have a look.

    Yes, BMW! Get back to making sports sedans that we used to love some time ago. What the shit are you building now? The new 5 series, 3 series, 7 Series, M5, 6 series, 6 series Gran Coupe are all pure rubbish when compared to their Audi and Mercedes counterparts. SHAME ON YOU, BMW!!!!!

    They should have tested the BMW with the M-package. That would have eliminated the body roll and softnes he is compaining about. Sorry America – but a Cadillac will never be able to measure itself to a BMW. Or any other european car…

    Really open minded crew. Drive an ATS first (I did) – bye-bye Beemer

  • Marc Hamady

    There is something that looks cheap about the Cadillac ATS. The CTS was a much better looking car, and the BMW 328i could use a more powerful 2.0T.
