As if Audi wasn't putting enough pressure on companies like BMW and Mercedes, the new ATS is only going to add to that pressure, especially considering the new price is at a mere 33,000 compared to the prices of BMWs and other luxury cars. I think this is a great strategy by GMC and I think it could work really well for them.
The ATS will have a 320 HP V6 engine (http://www.automedia.com/Blog/post/2013-Cadillac-ATS-Priced-From-$33990.aspx?utm_source=adamforum&utm_medium=cadillacforums) and an all wheel drive option, although there is no manual option. Anyways, I think it'll be a great car and will really stir up some trouble for the more luxurious car companies. What do you guys think?

The only way the ATS is going to beat the 3-series is if GM buys all the car magazines. The automotive journalists are married to the 3-series with no chance of divorce.

You are delusional. C&D has rated the Audi A4 and S4 better in comparison tests before...

Yeah, they might pick another car over the 3-series in their objective tests. They can't fudge the numbers. It is all their little tongue-in-cheek comments that bleed over into every review of every car that is anywhere close in size or category to their beloved 3-series that irritates me. And it's why I refuse to subscribe to any of their dribble anymore.

You believe what you want to believe. It doesn't really matter. MT, CD and RT are on borrowed time. The internet makes them more and more irrelevant as time goes on. I know they are hurting when all of them constantly send me subscription offers of $7 per year.

C&D is moving over to YouTube. Take your hate speech somewhere else, g00b...

Youtube? I guess it makes sense after Motortrend TV failed so spectacularly.
