2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe

2015 Cadillac ATS Coupe

Cadillac seems to be returning to the three box design of years passed with the new ATS Coupe. Although the ATS coupe is a push from the ATS sedan, there are surprisingly little that the two actual share. Those shared bits include common exterior components like the hood, headlamps, and trim pieces on the front fascia, even the door mirrors are different in the ATS coupe. With this difference in design the body is stretched 0.8 inches in length and 1.4 in width. The roof also went under the knife being lowered 1.1 inches with the rear window slopes are flattened providing a sleeker angle. They didn’t stop there with the window sills being slightly lowered as well giving the ATS coupe a slimming appeal.

The front and rear wheel tracks are a bit wider at 0.8 inches making the coupe sit lower and looks to be more planted than the sedan version of the ATS. The ATS coupe also sits on a set of 18×8 on all four corners and will have the option of 18×9 in the performance packages. The base engine is a straight out of the sedan optional department, 2.0 liter turbo four cylinder producing 272HP and 295lb-ft, that’s 35 more torques than the 2014 ATS sedan with the same engine equipped. The ATS coupe also can be had with a 3.6 liter DI V6 with 321HP and 276lb-ft of torque, a lack luster number compared to the 2.0 liter turbo four torque output and not to mention the other sixes in its class. A six-speed manual and automatic transmissions are available for the same price, and the optional all-wheel drive system with torque distribution is available for those that choose to go with automatic transmission. Brembo brakes are also a standard on all models.

Interior space is pretty much identical, since both the coupe and sedan share the same floor plan design, with the only limitation is the rear headroom space which has been shrunk about 1.8 inches in the back. So an average sized adult might find it a little cramped when occupying the rear seating. Materials are what you expect a brand like Cadillac to utilize as a luxury automaker. Genuine aluminum, carbon fiber and glossy or open-pore woods is available on the various trim levels, as well as the Semi-aniline leather faux-suede seatbacks. Cadillac has also made improvements to the CUE infotainment system, you will also love the available head-up display and newly optional 4G LTE wireless hotspot connectivity and wireless charging for certain mobile devices (iPhones aren’t among them). Base models start out at $38,990 and takes a giant upward leap to $52,430 for the 3.6 liter models with the Premium Collection package, opt for the Track Package and the price takes a smaller leap to $57,795. Expect to see the 2015 ATS coupe in about a month. Still it’s no BMW 4 series killer but it’s on the right path, hopefully, the V series of the ATS coupe fills the gaps that the V6 has in the power and torque department.
