LOS ANGELES, Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/
-- Motor Press Guild (MPG), the largest automotive media association in North America, today announced the all-new 2013 Cadillac ATS as the winner of the second-ever Motor Press Guild Vehicle of the Year (VOTY) Award. MPG President Laura Burstein will present the award at Cadillac's press conference on the second day of the Los Angeles Auto Show press days on Nov. 29, 2012 at 12:20 p.m.

The 2013 Cadillac ATS was one of six finalists chosen by a select panel of MPG journalist members who test and review cars on a regular basis. The final vehicles were evaluated and ranked by all voting journalist and analyst members at MPG's annual Track Day event on Oct. 9-10, 2012. Vehicles were rated in the categories of safety, quality, value, performance/handling, design/style, environmental/green impact and technology/innovation. In addition, journalists were encouraged to consider models that reflect the unique style of Southern California.

"In many ways, the ATS is a breakthrough vehicle for Cadillac," said Laura Burstein, President, Motor Press Guild. "Not only is it smaller and leaner than other Cadillacs on the market, it's the first American luxury car that truly goes head-to-head with compact luxury sport sedans from well-known European and Asian brands. Our members remarked that the ATS is capable on both the street and the track, offers a well-made and attractive interior, is replete with the latest technology and – perhaps most importantly – is fun to drive."
