    I am not seeing BMW or mercedes in that malibu picture. Although, I think like the last Malibu, this new design is going to look stale in a few years.

    how does that look like a mercedes grille?

    chevy has been using this split grille design for a long time and imho in the last few years it has really started to evolve into something that i really like and can get behind
    (some are obviously better than others, but i really like this new front end/grille evolution that chevy's gotten in to lately)

    I think the Cruze is the best execution of Chevy's current design language. Pictures just don't do the Cruze justice. It's much more attactive in person. Same with the CTS coupe. Maybe the ATS will be the same.

    Sonic\Aveo has the chin spoiler too if you notice.

    I think they are adding those for pedestrian standards in Europe.

    I believe the space between the bumper and radiator is the pedestrian safety factor. I would guess the chin spoiler helps aerodynamics by cutting a little more air out from under the car.

    Re: Anyone want an undisguised look at the ATS?

    Looking forward to some real info about the car.... I was going to be getting trading in my old silverado for something a bit more fuel efficient and right now was set on the 2012 camaro but this car might get me to wait.

    One of the biggest reasons I was considering the camaro was its bluetooth a2dp support (have a windows phone 7 with zunepass).... for some reason it was the only gm car I could find that supported that. Hopefully a brand new car in the would have the same support (because I would have chosen a cts over the camaro but bluetooth audio streaming was a killer for me).

    I think the basic design of the Cadillac ATS has been done for a long time now...

    streaming audio is overrated. It sounds okay, but it will kill the battery life of your phone. And if you are going to plug it in for power, you might as well just use the usb connection. I have an old ipod plugged in that way in my camaro. It stays in the car all the time.

    If I ever sell my V1, this is what I'm going to get. Can't wait to see the powerplant for the ATS-V.

    I have been doing it for the past 6 months and it has had almost no impact on my battery life.... my phone still lasts 24 hrs of heavy usage. I would just keep using the fm transmitter but it kills the audio quality and I have to manually power the device on each time I start the car (it runs off its own battery) and no steeringwheel controls.... I basically want to keep using my a2dp but have something that's properly integrated and has better sound quality than the fm I currently use.

    Re: Anyone want an undisguised look at the ATS?

    i stream from the internet to my phone constantly (pandora on iphone) in the car... but i have to use a tape adapter to get it into the speakers

    and battery isn't an issue (if i'm on a road trip i plug into the accessory outlet and stay charged anyway)

    i totally want to do the aux mod, but just can't seem to get around to it

    Re: Anyone want an undisguised look at the ATS?

    "my phone still lasts 24 hrs of heavy usage" They really have conditioned us to accept that. Before I had my iphone, I had a Sony Ericsson that I charged once a week. And I was using a2dp with that phone because my Parrot kit was the only way to get external music to my radio in my CTS. Before that it was more like 2 weeks. All this techno stuff has made my life too complicated
