At the recent 2014 Detroit Motor Show Cadillac has presented the ATS Coupe, its first compact luxury Coupe, set to go on sale this summer.


The ATS Coupe is based on the ATS sedan model, introduced in 2012. Compared to it, the Coupe has maintained the same wheelbase (109.3-inch /2,775 mm) wheelbase, but features a new bodywork.

The sporty character is underlined by the reduced height (from 1,421 to 1,392 mm), increased width (from 1,805 to 1,841 mm) and tracks (+20 mm), as well as the large 18-inch wheels, fitted as standard.

The roof, doors, rear fenders and trunk lid are unique to the Coupe, along with a specific front fascia and front fenders that accommodate a wider track than the sedan. It is also the first production model to wear Cadillac’s revised crest.

The aggressive stance, with wider front/rear tracks, is enhanced by short overhangs and sheet metal that wrap tautly around the tires.

Bold lighting elements are a Cadillac signature feature and the ATS Coupe advances that tradition with available light-emitting diode, or LED, headlamps with Adaptive Forward Lighting.

Base models feature projector- beam headlamps, while high-intensity-discharge headlamps and front vertical LED light signatures are included on all but the standard model. Another technical highlight is the capless fueling system.

Inside, the Coupe features the same driver-focused cabin of the Sedan, enhanced by handcrafted cut-and-sewn upholstered interior combinations, decorative stitching and authentic materials, including leather, aluminum, carbon fiber and wood.

Choices of many interior color themes, each with unique accent trim materials, ranging from light, open and warm to dark and serious, to bold technical and sporty.

The range of powertrains includes a choice of a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder or a 3.6L six-cylinder, mated to rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive transmissions.

The chassis features a nearly 50/50 weight balance and a low center of gravity; five-link independent rear suspension; and a multi-link double-pivot MacPherson-strut front suspension with direct-acting stabilizer bar.
