Cadillac ATS still on track for 2012, will arrive as sedan, coupe, wagon and convertible
Cadillac is experiencing a big revival these days, as not only did it impress many fans and won over a lot of other people with the CTS (and it’s performance editions, the CTS-V and the Coupe) but it is also thinking into the future with the XTS Platinum concept it showed off in Detroit, and is still working on the rumored ATS.
The new entry-level executive model will be aimed at competitors like the Mercedes-Benz C Class, BMW 5 Series or the Audi A4, replacing the unpopular BLS in Europe while it will slot in below the CTS in North America.
In order to take on its European and Japanese rivals, Cadillac will offer the ATS in all types of body styles, including a sedan, which will be premiered possibly at the end of the year, and also a wagon, a coupe and a convertible. In terms of the latter, according to InsideLine, opinions are divided as to whether a soft or a hard top will be used.
Either way, with the ascending trend in popularity it has been experiencing, Cadillac definitely needs to carefully plan the ATS so that it will be a hit with the new fans.
