Cadillac has announced the arrival of the 2019 ATS Coupe in the Middle East. The ATS is widely regarded as one of the more exhilarating, agile luxury coupes on the market.
Cadillac has bestowed its latest user experience system upon the 2019 ATS. The highlight of CUE (Cadillac User Experience) is the 8-inch touchscreen that is easily paired with smartphones. CUE provides drivers with easier access to the most common features. This makes the coupe one of the most connected cars in its segment. The system is redefined through innovative features such as Personalized Profiles, integrated navigation, user convenience among others.
The Cadillac User Experience System is a seamless technology that makes the 2019 ATS one of the most connected cars in its segment.
The 2019 Cadillac ATS is available in two trims: Premium Luxury, and Premium Performance. While both the trims have rear-wheel-drive, the Premium Performance variant boasts of Magnetic Ride Control. Paired with the lightweight, responsive chassis, this makes the ATS a very agile, responsive coupe without skimping out on luxury.
Both the trims of the ATS get Cadillac’s award-winning 3.6-litre V6 engine rated at 335hp and 386Nm. The ATS-V is a sport-oriented edition that takes the same V6, adds two turbochargers to it, and extracts 464hp and 603Nm from the motor. What’s more, the ATS also gets a limited-slip differential.
The suspension of the ATS-V is more suited to the track than public roads. The platform of the ATS-V is so good, that Cadillac pushed the same setup in more cars in its lineup. Cars like the CTS, CTS V-Sport, CTS-V, and the championship-winning ATS.V-R sit on the same underpinnings.
Both trims of the 2019 Cadillac ATS are well-appointed The Premium Luxury trim has a slight edge in this regard.
Inside, the cosseting and luxurious upholstery might deceive you into thinking the ATS might be more of an executive saloon than a sports coupe. Indeed, the Premium Luxury trim offers leather seats with heated, eight-way adjustable powered front seats with lumbar support. Programmable driver memory seats and mirror controls also elevate the convenience of the coupe.
Other standard connectivity and convenience technologies include Cadillac’s Driver Awareness Package, Rear Vision Camera, 220-volt conventional power outlet and upgraded Bose Premium Surround system. Customers of the Cadillac ATS can also choose between wood, aluminium, or carbon trims as per their preferences.
