No foolin', Cadillac wants to be at the top of your luxury-car shopping list. Aimed squarely at the BMW 3-Series, the ATS will be offered with a choice of 3 powertrains including a 270 hp 2.0L 4-pot and a top-of-the-line 318 hp 3.6L V6.
Cadillac has done its homework as it has taken the car to the famed Nurburgring for testing and to prove how capable it really is. It borrows from the CTS style-wise but remains distinctive enough to stand on its own 4 wheels and tires. The cabin looks comfortable and well appointed. Features will be plentiful when it arrives in the summer.
Unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Auto Show, the new BMW 2 Series Active Tourer will go on sale across Europe later this year. What about North America? A company insider told The Detroit Bureau that "it will get there eventually," possibly in two years time.
