Cadillac ATS Wins Popular Mechanics Auto Excellence Award

2013 Cadillac ATSEvery year, Popular Mechanics recognizes 10 models their “Auto Excellence” awards. They pick their favorites in 10 separate categories with one extra ‘car of the year’ – because, really, who doesn’t name a car of the year anymore?

Cadillac’s new ATS took the nod this year in the Luxury category. Notable for beating the also new for this model year BMW 3-Series and Cadillac’s own XTS which also bowed this year.

Quoting PM about the ATS:

Luxury isn’t defined solely by the gleam and grain of the wood fastened to the dashboard or the suppleness of the hides stitched to the seat frames. Sure, we like to be pampered, but the luxury cars we truly admire are more like the all-new Cadillac ATS—short on fluff and long on substance. The ATS packs a technical spec sheet loaded with advanced lightweight materials in the chassis as well as a body shell that’s up to 40 percent stiffer than the larger CTS sedan.
