2017 Cadillac ATS Base 2.0 turbo 4 cylinder from North America
A nice car, but a far cry from a Cadillac
Nothing so far.
My ATS sedan is a far cry from the 2002 Deville I had for over 12 years. Overall, the ATS is a very nice car, and it seems the fit and finish is superior to other Cadillacs I've had in the past.
The ATS is the first new Cadillac I've owned, having had several "certified" models in the past. I wanted a regular sedan, and test drove the ATS, CTS, and the XTS. They're all out of the same mold, look the same, and act the same. So, I went with the cheapest version.
I've only owned the car a month, but I will comment on a number of things. Ride is firm and hard. The TV screen center is hard to navigate. With no knobs to feel for, one has to take your eyes off the road to change radio stations or A/C controls. All cars seem to have this, a reason for many accidents, I think.
Hard to believe a four cylinder car performs like the ATS. Something like 300 HP is unbelievable. The car will fly, but not with me in it.
The stupidest thing is the auto stop, which shuts off the car at a red light. Can be bypassed, but every time you drive it.
Front seat is roomy and adequate, but the back seat is a joke. I can't imagine the Godfather emerging from the back seat of an ATS, or the other two sedans offered. But, I don't really need a roomy back seat.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Fully agree with reviewer.
Great ride but only on smooth roads. Bottoms out on potholes and broken roads, which is very harsh and tiring on long trips.
Wish it had button controls for the radio and climate.
Wish it had non run-flat tires. Harsher and railroading.
Otherwise a great vehicle. Put 14,000 km on vehicle... AP
