The saddle/black color combination looks amazing, and it's great to see such heavy usage of a contrasting dashboard, center console and door trim. That's something that BMW always did and made great usage of.

I've gotta say, I really like this. It takes what we like about the 2nd gen CTS and shrinks it, smoothes out some of the more pronounced lines and creates an overall very desirable package bound to differentiate it's self from a sea of 3 Serieses, C Classes and A4's. It appears as though GM didn't take any shortcuts to save money, what we have here looks just as well built and as well engineered (if not better) as anything out of Munich, Ingolstadt or Stuttgart.

Bravo Cadillac. It appears as though the wait was worth it. So aside from the ATS devoted section, I thought this would be a nice post for the lounge so all the "regulars" could see it.

It will be interesting to see how this ATS fares in the marketplace. Will it be viewed as a 3 series BMW competitior, or just a "cheap" Cadillac! I think it depends on how it drives, it won't sell on looks alone.

Love the car. I would buy one of these. I would have to see it at the dealer. They did a great job and I hope it works. It looks like they bringing color back to the interior. I like the red leather.

I'm an old school guy at heart. I love the big old Broughams, deVilles and to a lesser extent, the Sevilles and Eldorados. But those are dead and whatever full size model comes back to top the line will be great and fresh and truly desirable, but won't be a model like the much lamented full sizers.

On that note, I've got mixed opinions about the current line up. I like the CTS more than anything else in it's class, and the wagon, coupe and wicked V Series only solidify the awesomeness that is that car, but everything else in the lineup doesn't really grab me. But that's just my humble opinion, and it's not like I'm in the market now anyways. The XTS should be OK, but it's uninspired, but the ATS really grabs my attention. It's the first compact Cadillac that isn't a joke (not that that is saying very much though) and hopefully will pave an all new road for Cadillac to dominate, just like the 08 CTS did. On that note, the last time Cadillac introduced a totally new "small" Cadillac was the '03 CTS, and that left me very UNinterested. So the change from the '03 CTS to the '13 ATS is mind-blowing to me.

This link gives some more specifics: http://cadillacmagazine.com/2012/01/08/2013-cadillac-ats-challenges-the-status-quo/

Says curb weight is "less than 3,400 lbs."

Don't know about anyone else, but the only interior colors I can get my head around is the first one (above). Guess I need to see some of those in person before making a final decision. Can't wait to see a mesh upper and lower grill and a V on the side. A hand e-brake would be a plus. Can't wait to see one in the flesh at the NAIAS.

It's a sharp looking little car, and I like it for the most part, but I'll have to wait to see it in person to see if it's as striking as I want it to be. The pictures leave a lot to be desired for me. I like the engine and transmission options though. This could be a really good car for Cadillac.

In not thrilled with the exterior. It's not a "gotta have it" Cadillac (to me). But the interior may very well be raising the bar in its class. The way the car performs will be the deciding factor for many people. Overall, I think the Cadillac ATS is going to be a very hot seller.

At 3,400 lbs of less, a 470 hp V8 would really rock. With launch control, do I hear 4 sec flat 0-60?

Gen 1 V: 9.6 lbs/hp.

ATS-V: 7.2 lbs/hp

It looks like a CTS that was left in a wind tunnel for too long. That said, the proportions are correct and that short front overhang looks muscular. I would seriously considering buying one (like, a brand new one) if it drives as sharply as the interior looks.

In a way, it is. The CTS was Cadillac's entry level car. Now the ATS is. The CTS will no longer be an in-between'er. It'll be aimed directly at the 5-Series, as the ATS is aimed directly at the 3-Series...

The way I see it Cadillac Dealers are going to have trouble selling CTS Sedans in 2013. It sounds as if the Coupe and Wagon will sell as they do today, but the ATS Sedan is going to cause many people to not even look at the CTS Sedan (outside the V).

Yeah I agree...wait till other models are offered.

From the Detroit Free Press..."Other ATS models, possibly including a coupe, station wagon and convertible, are expected to follow the sedan."

Well the new Gen 3 CTS Sedan should come about 12 months after the ATS Sedan. So it's just the one year that will be real tough. The Gen 2 CTS Coupe and Wagon from what I read actually go through 2014 (so they are sold next to the Gen 3 Sedan for a year) and are replaced by the ATS Coupe in 2015, and maybe a CTS or ATS Wagon (which I haven't heard is approved yet).

The DTS was nice. But admittedly dated.

The STS was doomed to mediocrity from the start. Too big for a sport sedan, too small for a luxury sedan. It was a 5-series without the brand equity. The CTS will fill its shoes.

I think in the ATS I'd have the same issue as my GTO. I'd be Helmet on Roof. Which is better than my Corvette where I can't drive with a Helmet at all.... (unless I lay the seat back).

I do sit with the seat full down in the back, full up in the front (so a total slant) and the seat back nearly upright. You can get a few more inches by reclining backward.
