General Motors will introduce the Cadillac ATS compact luxury sports sedan in China in the fourth quarter of 2013. The ATS will be imported by Shanghai GM and sold at Cadillac dealers nationwide. The automaker said it will target the vehicle specifically for young Chinese car buyers.
The ATS features the Cadillac User Experience (CUE), which merges intuitive design with auto industry-first controls and commands for information and entertainment data, according to the automaker. Other standard features include Brembo brakes, Bose Active Noise Cancellation and eight air bags.
Advanced technologies such as Magnetic Ride Control (MRC), a mechanical limited-slip differential (LSD), the Enhanced Safety System (ESS II) and high-performance tires will be available on selected variants.
The ATS has drawn the attention of media and consumers worldwide since its debut, according to the automaker. It was named the 2013 North American Car of the Year, received the 2013 Red Dot Design Award, was the 2013 Esquire Car of the Year and won the 2013 Automotive Excellence Award from Popular Mechanics.
