Been waiting to get some more time with this sweet ride ever since the press drive way back in August. My tester is a fully loaded premium model and it's powered by the 2.0T motor, good for 272hp going to the rear wheels as the auto gods intended.

Of course I am disappointed that in their infinite wisdom those same gods did not see fit to affix a third pedal and choose your own adventure stick to this model, but it is an option and there's something to be said for that.


So far I find myself incredibly comfortable in the car. The cabin is the kind of space that you're happy to hang out in whether cruising an open road or crawling along in traffic. In either situation people seem genuinely surprised when the catch a glimpse of this car. Maybe because it's a Cadillac and the general population thinks they're still building land yachts or maybe it's because some young red bearded jackass is behind the wheel. Regardless of the reason, the ATS coupe is a head turner that's for sure.

Aside from the basic information you can find by going to Cadillac's website, what do you Opponauts want to know? I can tell you that it will baby, 3 dead hookers could fit in the trunk given that you passed high school geometry and yes, I'll lay down some rubber in it. Save your deep and philosophical questions for Hardigree, I'm sure he went to a college with dorms and everything. Throw your nonsense questions at me, I'll do my best to answer them in an enlightening, useful manner.

He also has a YouTube Channel and thinks talking about himself in the 3rd person is really weird but knows it's necessary if he wants to be taken seriously as an automotive journalist.
