At the Detroit show, Cadillac had fighting words backing up the ATS. GM North America president Mark Reuss said the car will challenge German supremacy in the sport-sedan segment. Touting the brand's latest small sedan. Reuss said the ATS is "the most mass-efficient car in its segment," with a curb weight of well under 3,400 pounds. The proof will be in the driving, but the ATS fits the Cadillac lineup and it doesn't look deliberately scaled down.
