Thu, Feb 7 2013
DETROIT – Fresh from being crowned North American Car of the Year, the Cadillac ATS luxury sport sedan today received the 2013 “Best of the Year” Drivers’ Choice award by PBS’ MotorWeek, the longest-running automotive program on television. The award was announced and presented at the Chicago Auto Show.
“The Cadillac ATS is simply the most impressive luxury sport sedan ever to wear an American brand name,” said MotorWeek host John Davis.
A group of 15 judges from MotorWeek’s editorial staff chose the ATS from more than 150 cars, trucks, and utilities. The vehicles were judged on performance, technology, practicality, fuel efficiency and dollar value. Out of 13 lifestyle categories, ATS was also picked “Best Sport Sedan.”
"The objective of ATS was to challenge the world’s best sport sedans head-to-head, developing a true driver’s car that was nimble, quick and fun,” said Jim Vurpillat, director of marketing, global Cadillac. “That makes this recognition from the experts at Motorweek especially meaningful.”
A compact sport sedan, the ATS is offered in rear- and all-wheel drive versions, with a choice of powerful and efficient four- and six-cylinder engines. It recently received a 5-Star overall crash test rating and received five stars in every category in the New Car Assessment Program run by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Cadillac has been a leading luxury auto brand since 1902. In recent years, Cadillac has engineered a historic renaissance led by artful engineering and advanced technology. More information on Cadillac can be found at media.cadillac.com.
