True luxury interior with real carbon fiber

Cadillac XTS / Reviews / 2013 Cadillac ATS Review / True luxury interior with real carbon fiber

The interior itself is well laid out with everything where it should be and an easy-to-find position for performance driving. Though the leather on the shifter does seem cheap, the coating on the seats most certainly isnt, looking particularly first-rate when wrapped around the optional sport seats.

With an extensive list of interior packages, one can choose everything from organic Caramel with Olive wood accenting to deep Morello Red seats with the first use of genuine carbon fiber trim in a Cadillac.

One of the things that helps set Cadillac apart is its lack of product sharing with the rest of the GM lineup and yet even a product like the ATS, which doesnt share a platform with any other GM model, still has some parts bin items and they show. Included in that list are the stalks and the window control buttons. Theres nothing inherently wrong with the quality, its just that sharing parts with regular cars is decidedly unbecoming of a premium brand.

Occupants will appreciate the smooth highway ride and exceptionally quiet cabin, plus rear seat legroom is surprisingly good and will fit 6 footers with ease, though ingress and egress is difficult in the back with the sloping roof.
