2013 Cadillac ATS 3.6 AWD

All-Wheel, All Right There is no escaping the luxury all-wheel drive empire Audi has built for itself over the past 15 years. While nearly every high-end marque has at least one offering with power at all four corners, the hardware can't help but play second fiddle to Ingolstadt's Quattro kingdom. Leather-lined all-wheel drive is simply Audi the way minimum wage is an English degree.

    American auto enthusiasts may associate the letters ATS with Cadillac's smallest sedan, but Europeans will know it as Automobili Turismo e Sport.

    1375731000

    The BMW 3 Series has long been the benchmark for small and sporty luxury vehicles, but the Cadillac ATS has come on strong in its short time on the market as a true rival in this segment.
