Cadillac Wants a CLA-Fighter

Recently, Cadillac’s new head has been eyeing a car below the current ATS. One that would allow Cadillac to boost sales in the growing entry-level tier of the lux market where cars like the Mercedes CLA, Audi A3.

These cars are based on front-drive platforms which had us having nightmares that Johan de Nysschen might be thinking a Chevy Cruze based Cadillac might be appealing.

However, he is currently looking and taking Cadillac’s Alpha platform down a notch to fill the void. This could give Cadillac a strong differentiator in this space against the German front-drive (often with AWD systems) competition.

“The cost and packaging advantages of front-wheel dive are appealing. But Cadillac is the challenger brand”, explained de Nysschen. “We want to build our reputation as a purveyor of high-performance driver’s cars, so it’s better that we do it off a rear-wheel drive architecture.”

Smaller than ATS and rear-drive? Sounds promising Mr de Nysschen.

Let’s Listen to the New CTS-V Start-Up

Car and Driver snagged this short video of the new 2016 CTS-V starting up.

That’s quite the badass exhaust note to go with the car’s 640 supercharged horsepower.

Expect more details when the car officially debuts at the January NAIAS (North American International Auto Show) in Detroit.

Enjoy.

ATS-V Starting Price Announced

In an interview with USA Today, Cadillac chief Johan de Nysschen let slip that the newly unveiled ATS-V would start at $63k.

How does that compare to the M3/M4 siblings?

M3 sedan starts at $62950 (according to our friends at kbb.com)
M4 coupe starts at $64950.

So, it appears the ATS-V will come in with a very competitive price.

It will take more detail to know how things shake out once the options start piling on and how the cars compare on the street or track.
