New Cadillac ATS Coupe Coming Next Year to Rival the BMW 4-Series

The Cadillac ATS has already caused quite a stir in the industry, ever since it went on sale. They even had to tone down the production of the CTS at the time of the ATS’ launch, as it was stealing just so many of its sales. Now, its appeal will be even greater with the addition of a coupe variant, which has already been shown to US dealers, along with the redesigned Escalade.

According to one of Carscoops’ sources who has seen the car, the new ATS coupe “has the same door handles as the ATS sedan, rather than the recess “hidden” door handles on the current CTS coupe.”

GMInside News, which quoted an “insider” on the matter, reported that the ATS coupe will be considerably less radical than the CTS Coupe, adding that it gets longer doors, and a redesigned greenhouse, but apart from that it should look pretty much like the sedan.

No official time frame for the car’s launch was given, but the same inside source told the website that a mid-2014 date is quite realistic.

All in all, the ATS’ transition to a coupe body style should be a very successful one, as the car’s profile looks to be made for it. Predictably, it will be the better looking variant, and the most striking, until a possible coupe version of the new CTS is made, keeping the same rakish design philosophy as its predecessor.
