Takes Automotive Excellence Award in ‘Luxury’ category

2012-11-13

NEW YORK –The all-new Cadillac ATS won the 2013 Popular Mechanics Automotive Excellence Award in the “Luxury” category, editors of the magazine announced today. The ATS was chosen for its performance and value within the entry-level luxury car segment.

The full package is available at PopularMechanics.com and in the December issue, which hits newsstands today.

“The ATS was developed as an all-new, ground-up approach to deliver a segment-winning vehicle,” said Don Butler, vice president of Cadillac Marketing. “Because of this, it is rewarding to be recognized by one of the premier publications for science, technology, and automotive innovation.”

The yearly Popular Mechanics Automotive Excellence Awards recognizes 10 vehicles based on functionality, style, performance, technology, and driving character. Cadillac’s new sport sedan was chosen from a field of the world’s finest new luxury cars.

“The ATS is the first Cadillac to fully assault the entry-level luxury sport sedan class long dominated by German brands,” editors of the magazine wrote. “Cadillac delivers this substantial sedan for under $35,000. That’s one of the best luxury sport sedan deals of the year.”

A compact sport sedan, smaller than Cadillac’s centerpiece CTS product line, the ATS is the lightest car in its class with a unique architecture designed for nimble driving performance. The ATS is offered in rear- and all-wheel drive versions, with a choice of powerful and efficient four and six-cylinder engines.

Cadillac has been a leading luxury auto brand since 1902. In recent years, Cadillac has engineered a historic renaissance led by artful engineering and advanced technology. More information on Cadillac can be found at media.cadillac.com.
