It could then compete with the 8 foot long smart car. These new cars have got so small a lot of regular and large people have gone to SUVs to get something comfortable to ride in. Bring back the Fleetwoods, all of us are not migets.

    I know how you feel. Just keep in mind that the small car segment is THE LARGEST and most profitable, by far, in the luxury segment. If Cadillac continued to ignore it, they'll be left in the dust... It's cars like these that make all the money for companies like Mercedes and BMW...

    They will keep getting more and more popular as gas keeps rising. You would be naive to think we are not staring down the barrel of $6/gal gas.

    Re: Anyone want an undisguised look at the ATS?

    I think it's looks good, this might get me to come back to GM. I was hoping to get a new Camaro but there were none in 2006 so I ended up getting a BMW 325xi. As much as I love my BMW, I grew up a GM man and really want to get back. Seeing as how my car is paid off and I want something a little larger (got kids and I think the ATS is going to be a little bigger than the 3-series, closer to the 5) but definately wanting a RWD car. Not really concerned about the engine, as long as I get more than 21 mpg in the city (which is what I get now with my heavy car with AWD). I just hope they don't option this car into the 3-series price range. I'd like a decently loaded ATS with nav for $35k. (Yeah, I'm probably dreaming).

    My wife has been with GM forever (currently drives an '08 Lacrosse) so she is happy that I might be returning. She is currently out of town for work and in a 2012 Lacrosse rental, she says it might be time to trade up.
    Other than chaging a turn signal, we have had no issues with the Buick. Hoping GM quality is back.

    It won't be bigger than the 3, closer to the 5. That's where the current CTS is now and that will grow to 5 series size with the next gen. The ATS will be 3 series sized. That's the point. As for pricing, I'm sure it will undercut the BMW. But I doubt by much...

    Overall, it should be the same size as the 3. I am betting the front seat area will be larger though (for us large chassis-ed americans) and the back seat will probably be tiny.

    I know what you can do..... take the front drivers seat out and sit in the back seat and drive the car from there and it should be comfy as hell with plenty of room for you big boi's.

    Not very original. It will marginalize to CTS as did the STS. Can we at least get something cool like a 2.0L V8 twin-turbo with laser ignition?
