The outlook: The ATS is Cadillac's new entry-level model, a car designed from the ground up to compete with the BMW 3-series. Combining sport and luxury characteristics, the ATS can be had with two different engines and will get Cadillac's new CUE infotainment system, which brings in navigation, Bluetooth phone support, digital music, and other features.

The good: The 2013 Cadillac ATS handles extremely well, whether in the daily commute or spirited driving. Driver assistance features help prevent accidents, and the cabin electronics offer first-rate navigation and digital-audio capabilities.
The bad: The CUE cabin electronics interface's response times are far too slow. The suspension can jar harshly over bumps.
The bottom line: The 2013 Cadillac ATS is a fun, nimble little luxury car that offers an easy all-around driving experience, and while its cabin electronics features are solid, the touch-screen performance proves frustrating.
